November is my second favorite month, behind October (Halloween is my jam). It has so many awesome things – the last lap of college football, the heart and soul of the NFL season, the beginning of college basketball, and freaking Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving! It’s like all of the best religious family holidays (for me and Claire, those are Rosh Hashanah and Passover) but the focus isn’t on boring religion, it’s just on eating. Eating! Eating and football! It’s also National Beard Month. Random fact, but it’s true. Every November my beard grows wild.
Also, this month on the blog we’re doing a new topic: Song structure. We want to really investigate the individual parts that make up a song – the intros, the verses, the bridges, the refrains, and the outros. Not to mention the random things that go into making a great song, like the solos and licks and one-liners. And the best part? Wait, no, that is the best part. Songs, Thankgiving, beards, football, and songs. Hope you enjoy it! We’re gonna have some fun.
