You Love Me- WIP 2

Well, I am excited to say that this song is really coming along-theoretically. I have a lot of ideas written as to how I will finish this song. The lyrics are finalized and an idea of the melody and time signatures is figured out. I still need to do a 1st draft to give myself that audio idea and so I can listen for other additions, instruments, effects, etc.

But first I wanted to jump back into this song's history and show you a verse from the old version. You will see how basic it is. Remember to write without editing first. Whatever comes out write it down. Sleep on it even for a week if needed and then go back and look. Or keep adding ideas as they come to you.

I showed you in an earlier post some of the lines to this song in its newer version.. You can look at this attachment and then go to the new version where the extra work on word and rhyme research and sensory language made a difference. It is cut off a bit. This older version could be just fine if you added a good hook to it. But I felt it needed a little more help. See my comments on the scanned page. You want to avoid cliches and too often quoted lines. They get boring after a while.
If you like the changes and want to know more. I will continue to show snips of this process that I am taking. You can also go to (I believe). and sign up for the next free Song writing class by Pat Pattison. I encourage you, again, to take the course. It's free. Go to YouTube and look up Pat Pattison and watch a video or two of his sessions and interviews. I found him very informative. It is worth your while if you intend to master your craft.
