Original Songs Under Development

To better illustrate how music is developed digitally, a number of copyrighted but not studio produced (yet) songs are included in this section to better illustrate the developmental process as the song is readied for studio production.  First, let's assume the basic lyrics and musical idea is suitable for a future live studio production.  The next phase with respect to the home bound journey is choosing the digital instruments followed by vocal support. 

In my digital world, choosing the digital instruments is basically by trial and error; choosing the right live vocalist for the song is equally important but less complex.  I ask myself, is this a gender friendly song, that is, female or male oriented?  Does gender of the vocalist make any difference?  Moving from the basics developed in my home studio to a recording studio where the final track is cut completes the journey except for marketing.   Marketing is another aspect of the musical journey and a topic we'll get into at a later date.

At the following link are a few  examples currently being digitally developed to illustrate the songwriting journey from lyrics, to the music to a digital demo and then, on to the live recording studio:
