Week 1 #tuneoftheweek

And so it begins, my aim to write a tune a week and I have just written my first one since I came up with the idea yesterday. I will be posting all tunes for #tuneoftheweek here on my website.

I had no formula for writing this tune, no sort of particularly thought out techniques or plan. It pretty much just came to me. It’s been a beautiful sunny day and for the most part my mood has not reflected the weather. It got to the point where I felt I had to release some sort of tension and felt the urge to hop on the piano. I find that playing an instrument can help to let out emotions and writing tunes can be a particularly good for this.

I’ve called this tune “The Achievement”. This is a rough recording of it played on my new/old, slightly out of tune piano with a creaky pedal which I love to play.
