Songs on the Road

As welll as writing about the trip I knocked out two songs towards the end of my trip.

Strange thing was I wanted to write a song throughout the whole trip, but even with 1/2 the Australian coast line as a muse I couldn't pen anything down, nor could I get the fingers moving on the guitar.

Of course, once things settled down and I was relaxing ideas began to start flowing, but I still didn't have anything I really wanted to write about.

Step in girls. That's right, it was the girls that finally gave me my muse and I ended up writing two songs in two nights.

It's funny how the whole east coast of Australia can't stir up enough emotion for a song, but a simple sms and someone leaving the holiday house provides more then enough fuel for the fire.

Anyway, I came across this site which gives some basics to guitar playing and the theory around music, I'll have to revisit it to polish these off, but anyone learning should have a look through the site.

Hope the trip was good mate. Hopefully plenty of Sunday beers at the Coogee Bay Hotel.

The Essential Guitar Players Guide website is fantastic. Great link, keep up the good work!
