Here’s a new original tune that I wrote called “Big Sky”. I worked on this song on and off for the better part of a year. I had most of it done relatively quickly but couldn’t find those last few parts to tie everything together with.
I was on a trip to Montana at the beginning of the summer when I was working on it and found the parts to finish the song… so I named it after the Big Sky state!
Something that I’ve noticed about my writing style is that I get inspiration from many different places, but the environments I resonate with have a lot to do with how songs develop. I have been visiting Montana a couple times a year for the last few years and I personally believe that even if I’m not there when I work on a song like this… The memories and emotions of being in a place like that have a profound effect on what comes out of me when it’s time to write.
So even though I only finished this song while I was in Montana, I believe that my previous trips there have made this song what it is. Please leave a comment below if you have similar experiences or would just like to talk about where your inspiration comes from!
Good job very enjoyable! I’m just now getting back into music and it’s been put on hold a couple of times but I’m still going.
Thanks Daryl! Glad you like it. Keep those fingers moving!
wow awesome piece of work so fitting to the background very melodic and feeflowing great job!
Wow! Great song Mike. Really like the mixture of the chords you use mixed with some silence and. I really like it.
I wish I could be picking like that …. lol . I have to work on that. ;-)
Great song, thanks for sharing.
Hi MIke, thanks for sharing your latest song. Beautiful song and great guitar playing. I shared it on my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ accounts.
Thanks Sam! Glad you enjoyed it and Thanks for sharing!
Very Nice. One can envision traveling thru Yellowstone NP, Glacier NP, Bighorn Canyon Dam, Big Horn Battlefield NP while listening. It’s a great place, that’s why they call is “Big Sky” Country and your music does it justice.
Thanks Len! That’s exactly the vibe I was going for with this tune. Appreciate it!
