Making everything in a song your own–Part 1
It’s VITAL to make everything in a song your own
Taking the time to ensure you make every ingredient you intend into your song your own, is a vital action in creating a Great Song. It applies to performing it as well.
You could describe it as infusing yourself and leaving your very own personal mark in every part of your song, whether composing or performing it. It’s essentially a spiritual process, but you will instinctively use any or all of your own creative world as you get your body to play what you are thinking.
You know if a song, a melody, or lyrics sound like you created it. It’s an • intuitive sense you have, and it’s a good thing to get very familiar with it when you start writing a Great Song.
A simple way to discover that intuition within yourself is to not stop creating your song until every part of it sounds and feels exactly how you want it to be, which by doing that to your complete satisfaction leaves you with no doubt it’s all yours.
Using your • attention helps keep you focused until you have made your song totally your own.
Familiarization is as natural as breathing
When you become very familiar with something or someone, the natural result is you tend to feel like you have an ownership in its existence because you know it or that person so well.
So, if you want to make something or someone your own, become VERY familiar with EVERY aspect of its existence, or their existence, and the true feeling of spiritual ownership will happen within you.
And, of course that would also apply to making any ability completely your own that you want to get really good at.
