What you will watch in the video is my song writing process in action.
All I had at the start were just two chords and the words “Cold Wind Blows” the rest is improvised as I go. No second take.
Yes I record each songwriting session – it is a great way to remember the intention of the moment. Video is even better as I can see the chords I use too.
I will now tidy up the lyrics a bit.
(yes for those who know Dunedin I know the Nor-West wind is a warm wind I will change it to Nor-East – the biting cold one straight down the harbour)
