Williams, Time and Again
Andrew Williams, Time and Again
This piece catches the essence of my writing for guitar. It is essentially a song. At base, most of what I do is searching for a good song - in my mind, song is the musical form that means most to the greatest number of people. A strong melody over interesting harmonic progressions in a three-to-five-minute package is a big enough challenge to keep my writing skills stretched for the rest of my life. And the songs I have always loved the most have something a little strange, haunting or uncanny about them: I look for moments like that when I’m writing.
Songwriters think in terms of hooks and chord sequences. This piece was born from a single really compelling chord change (again, that is a songwriter approach) from C # minor to B major. Something in the sonorities of that chord sequence on classical guitar gave me goosebumps, and the rest followed. It isn’t easy to play but it is really addictive.
