I took part in a challenge to write a song using only the chords Em, F, Am, and C.
I sat down and started writing what was on my mind, which narrowed down to this--pushing aside a number of older song ideas. I wrote, arranged and recorded it in one stretch--I finished at about 5 AM yesterday.
It's a little different for me, I think.
It's the first time I've done it all in one day. It's also the first song I've written for my wife. The part about us sleeping on a couch in San Francisco on our anniversary is true (but it was a fold-out couch).
