30 Songs In 30 Days - Day 2

The sounds of John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner were on my mind as I wrote this "open sounding", simple blues progression using sus4 chords.  I sometimes think of composing as a game. This time the game was toying with the use of the third scale degree against the suspended 4th harmony in each phrase.

I like this one.

Charles Lloyd's "Hyperion With Higgins" is another suspended 4th blues I heard recently, which was on my mind as I wrote this.

On Day 2 of this 30-Day Challenge I'm enjoying the experiment and process.  I hope I can maintain the momentum.
