30 Songs in 30 Days – Day Fifteen – The Face of Love

October 5, 2014

I’m halfway through. I’m kind of astounded that I’ve made it this far and I’m almost disappointed that the end is in sight.

The main thing I’ve learned is to deliver the song with confidence. And confidence comes from knowing your material. Practice, practice, practice. Bludgeon the lyrics into your head. Get the chords into muscle memory. At that point you can trust them when you’re playing. The same applies to recording and playing live. The better you know your material, the better it will be delivered.

The Face of Love is surprisingly tricky to sing. The lyric cuts across the beat, particularly in the 2nd and 3rd verses, and I found the first few times through that it threw my strumming off. I think I got away with it on this take – it’s better than any of the others, that’s for sure!
