I guess all of us have opened our big flapping gobs and said something we wished we hadn't. This may be a specialty for some (hmmmm?). But let us not get into the if I could turn back time groove. Rut. Snake pit.
I can never write a melody if the chords aren't telling me a story. The movement or suspense of each note is a conversation between a group of people, almost, and I'm merely listening in and taking notes. But that doesn't always mean each sequence and voicing has been sweat over – the verse chords popped out when I was simply testing the quality of a microphone. The chorus sequence is a response to the verse, as per, taking the chord-versationists (!) on a walk through a walled garden. I guess.
