Song Writing Concepts

Song Writing Concepts

I use these song writing concepts when I'm writing poems or songs. These concepts are easily adaptable to many forms of creative writing. If I lose my focus while brainstorming ideas, I just re-focus on the concepts and return to creating.

  1. Chorus element must create longing desire
  2. What is the desire?
    How does it impact you?
    How does it impact the listener?
    What does it mean to the listener?
    What is the catchy HOOK element?

  3. Each part must be treated as a movement

DIY Speaker Wiring Parallel vs. Series

Speaker Wiring Parallel vs. Series

When wiring two or more speakers, remember this:
1. The more speakers wired in parallel, the smaller the load.
2. The more speakers wired in series, the higher the load.

There are many resources to determine speaker wiring, impedance load, and power handling calculations. I suggest Googling: "speaker wiring formula"

Parallel Wiring Diagram

With parallel wiring, two 8 ohm speakers yield a 4 ohm load.

Sears Silvertone Solid State 150 Re-Cap

Sears Silvertone Solid State 150 Re-Cap

Got this Sears Silvertone SS-150 amp head from Austin CL (craigslist). It was cheap, so I thought, "why not?"

Took it apart and found all the electrolytic caps showing their age. Either goop was sticking out, or one end was expanding... all of them... 22 caps in all, not including the large 6000uF/40V caps. They do show signs of age, but I chose not to touch them until I have the re-cap done...

The chassis is hand-wired, and there are 3 control boards with thru-hole mounting. Here's some pics (before):
