Do you really believe that?

The way I was taught is that songs come for a reason... when they come... sing them... if not you are disrespecting that gift that was given...

Just my 49 cents worth...

I love word songs but don't sing other nation's songs too often, especially if I'm unclear of the correct pronunciations... what sucks, is I've been instructed by a few elders that we are not allowed to give away our language in pow wow songs... so right now I'm learning more of my Lenape and Tsalagi languages.... sucks... the one language I know and use... I'm not able to use... the only songs I have in my own language are personal songs I can't put out on the drum... would be curious to find out how many others have similar problems... right now almost all of our originals we sing on our drum are straight songs because of this reason... I won't go against my elders, but sometimes wish I were allowed to use the language and share it in the songs (especially considering some songs that have come used the language... and man, I love the language, it flows, and is just pretty to me.) Oh well, what else can I do? Maybe one day they'll give me the chance to actually sing it...

Just my 49 cents worth....

Paselo~

So...how do you react when you hear new stuff?...And I mean new songs or even different languages?

I made one song, only because I was asked to do so by a special person. That person said that the song would be "gifted" to me by the Creator. Well, I sweated nuts and bolts over that song. I struggled and sang and struggled some more for maybe two weeks. I sang some versions to my wife, who is a walking encyclopedia of remembered songs, Southern and Northern. On a couple of them that I sang to her, she said, "Oh Brother, that's a 'twin'!" She meant that I was singing a song that was almost a dead ringer for another song, or that I was singing phrasing from another known song. Then she would sing the "twin" for me and laugh! I finally arrived with what I thought was an acceptable version, approved by all.

Was it the Creator's gift? Even though I toiled with its construction and tune, I could possibly say, "Yes." Otherwise, where do these things come from? They come seemingly from the "ether" around us, whether there is a struggle or not.

On the other hand, I learned my lesson. I'm remaining a dancer, not a singer or song maker. Over the years, I have learned already-made songs, so that I may conform my dancing to them in a better way.

That's the thing I've learned about songs...You can't sit there and try to make a song...really you just kinda have to catch it...and go with it..like a certain part of the day ya know? If you sit there and try and try to make a song...it won't happen..you should just quit..let it go..throw that song out, and start over. Wait for tha next one to come through and make somthing of it....that's what I do anyways..but heck...I can't even sing lol
