I had something neat kind of happen though. I have a good friend Nick who shared a cheat sheet for musicians. It showed what chords you should play if you were in a certain key. A lot of my music is pretty simple 1-4-5 stuff, so I never really thought about music keys when playing guitar. So when Nick posted this chart it really opened my eyes.
Anyway, so I was messing around with the chord chart, and started playing basic chords in this order:
C, G, Am, Em. I liked where it was going. I use those chords a lot. Then I decided to use something that I never really did. I went with F since that's what the chart suggested. I felt that Em would be right after that. I felt that I was onto something, but was having trouble deciding what to do next. It was then I went back to F, and followed up with G. So try that this way:
C, G, Am, Em, F, Em, F, G.
I have having fun with it when I started to play it a certain way. It then hit me, I had just ripped off note for note the cello part of Canon in D. Yes. That Canon in D.
And here's my confession. I played cello in high school, and yes, I played Pachelbel's Canon in D. I felt like such a heal. Seriously, if you have a guitar by you, play those notes while listening to this:
This is really getting to me. I had the chords and rhythm picked out for both the verses and chorus. I had even started writing some lyrics. However, I have just stopped. I am just disgusted with myself. I'm just not sure where to go from here.
