I’ve gotten rough drafts back from the pianist that I am working with. I love the melodies that he put to my songs. This whole process is amazing. Everytime I get something back, I am even more excited to get into the studio.
I really wanted to share a lesson learned from working with musicians. I sent the pianist a song using the voice memo on my iPhone. The quality on those things is great. But anyway, the pianist created a slow melody to a song that I meant to be more mid-tempo. After listening back to my voice memo recording, I realize how he could have done that.
In the future, I will be sure to note how I want the tempo of the song to be. Not that this caused a problem, but it definitely could have saved some time…for both of us. The funny thing is that the song wasn’t slow in head, but I can’t expect people to read my mind. LOL
