So, for ten months now, my friend Thomas (of Mad, Bad, and Dangerous To Know) has been asking me to write a Thing. (Thomas may, in fact, be persistent.) The Thing being a break down of my song, The Course, which was the final and winning piece of the 2017 Northshield Bardic Competition at Warriors and Warlords (WW). Basically, the purpose is to show the evolution of the piece from conception to final product, to illustrate my writing process. Thomas was a finalist with me, and he did his own Thing after the Competition on his song When Northshield Sings of The Griffin.
And so, months & months after him, here’s my own break-down of my song, The Course.
