I’m starting to think that I need to expand my instrumentation. Having my own BVs double as synth, cello, xylophone, trumpet and, well to be frank, a male voice, is getting old. I often write songs that I imagine will be sung by a male/female duo a la Barnaby Bright, except with the male leading most songs and me providing atmospheric background vocals. Do any other songwriters (ahem, Tina, looking at you) do the same? For the moment I’ll just have to put up with myself.
As far as the guitar skillz… I think I AM getting better!
