*Music - Beginning Stages - Making a Demo*

All these great classic rock songs we play everyday here had a beginning. I read in interviews before that some musicians equate writing a song, to giving birth. An experience that I'll never to be able to describe what it's like. Giving birth that is. Writing a song...check. My first one. Only took 53 years for it to happen. Long story short, was only weeks ago that I took a keyboard out of a closet we had, plugged it in, and after several sessions, I finished composing my first musical composition.

So I made a DEMO

The next step having completed the demo, would be to record it properly, in a real recording studio. Having the demo, takes the possibility up a notch. Hopes would be to sell the finished number on iTunes, and then have fun traveling the country-side performing the ditty in concert. And a song in demo form is usually where it all begins. So without further ado, here's mine.
