As usual, I’m having to keep my eye on the chord progressions so I don’t wander off. There is merit in letting myself wander off, but that’s not what I’m looking to accomplish here. Nevertheless, I’m enjoying recording the stuff that pops up while I do wander, even if I put it in another piece.
I’m also annoyed at having bumped up against another rough patch. Someday, I will get used to the fact that most pieces start out easily, and then turn into just a lot of work, and I will not be surprised by this fact.
