MIXTURE: Composing is messy.....

Ran across this graphic and thought I'd share it. This is a shot of the chart for Crooked done while we were writing the tune - you can see it's dated August 2010.

This particular song was tricky to put together. On the other side of the sheet was the initial sketch of the form, and we went through several iterations before landing on something we liked.

Crooked, from Joey Stuckey's album MIXTURE
The Cleaned up version looks a lot nicer.....
