Oddly enough, most songs come to me while I'm driving my car. Then I have to pull over to the shoulder and jot down the basic idea of it. Later, at home, I work it out into its final version. I never choose what I'm going to write about. The songs just pop into my head - finished.
For that reason I never know what kind of song is going to pop into my head next. It might be funny, such as 'The Pizza Man', downright corny like 'Washing Machines eat Socks', philosophical such as 'There's a Reason', etc.

I tried for years to find a publisher for some of my songs and came pretty darn close quite a few times. Finally I decided that the only way my songs are going to be heard is to install an answering machine and simply play one of my songs each week.

I started this 16 years ago and as time progressed, more and more people began to call (and pass on) my number to the point where I got well over 100 calls per day, some from as far away as Florida, Texas, Alaska - I even got a call from Budapest (Europe) once!! About three years ago radio stations from various parts of the United States started to call my number and play the songs over the air. Some outfit from Wall street called me every Monday and played my song over their intercom - so I'm told.
I hope you enjoy my paintings on the right.

Hi - I hope all is well. My first time back here in years. :)

Helmut,

I finally have some more free time to focus a bit on music. I recorded a version of Don't Know Why and e-mailed it to you at the address you provided before. It's an mp3 file. Let me know what you think and we can take it from there my friend.

Best,

Patrick




Helmut Licht

Patrick - I've been away from here for quite some time. I'm glad you are better and happy that you haven't forgotten the song :)
I look forward to hearing what you come up with - I know it will be great!
Have a great day and stay well!!!
Your friend Helmut

Hi Helmut. Hope all is well. Just wanted to check in with you. I was sick and in and out of the hospital for a couple of months in November and December. I had what was supposed to be a routine surgery that resulted in a fairly bad infection and an additional surgery. In any case, I am back to full health and feeling great. While I was recovering and away from work I pulled out the song we have been working on, Don't Know Why. I have been working on recording the guitar part. I am in the process of learning some of the chords and getting comfortable with them as I have not used a couple of the chords much in the past. It's exciting for me to do this because I am learning!! As soon as I get a version that I am reasonably comfortable with I send it your way and we can take it from there.

Your friend,

Patrick

Helmut,

Just checking in with you. Hope all is well with you. I have still been very busy at work the past couple of months. Haven't done any recording at all. I expect things to slow up here in November and December and plan to get to our project first thing!!

Hello Helmut,

All is well with me. I have been very busy lately and traveling a lot for work. I'll be settling in over the next few weeks and plan to work on "Don't Know Why..." I am excited to get back to it. Hope all is well with you my friend.

Patrick




Helmut Licht

7/26/2008 5:20:19 PM
Patrick - thanks for your kind words. I love what I do and do what I love. But, please, don't call me sir, otherwise I'll have to get dressed up :)
Have a great day!
Helmut

Helmut, I am open to whatever you would like to do. We can experiment a little until we get it right. I am honored to work with you sir! I visited your main website and I have to say you are an amazing individual. You are living life to the fullest from what I can tell! Thanks My wife is a wonderful person indeed. -Patrick

Helmut Licht

Patrick - sounds good to me :) In 50 years of writing music, this is the first time someone else is writing lyrics to one of my melodies. Thanks!
When it's all done I want to experiment and put some big orchestra sounds behind your recording. It may not work, but it's worth a try. I'll back you up with a vertical symphony:)
Regards to your wife. You are lucky to have a wife that is interested in and supportive of what you love to do!
Take her out for dinner :)
Helmut

Helmut, Sorry the e-mail is not working. I have been sending/receiving e-mails so I am stumped as to why it's not getting through. In terms of the lead sheet, I would be more comfortable at this point having you send your version as is. I am no music wizard I really play by ear for the most part. My wife can read music so she helps me in that regard if necessary. Once I write lyrics and come up with guitar chords for a song I sometimes do practice recordings to test out the key and make sure it works with my vocals. If not, I adjust the key.

In this case, with "Don't Know Why..." I worked out the lyrics simply by listening to your instrumental recording of the tune. Then, I worked out the guitar chords by ear by playing along with your tune. However, I would really like the lead sheet as you suggested so I can confirm that what I came up with is correct. The next thing I will do is record a version of it with me singing the lyrics with guitar backing. I will play it in a key that works for my voice. I'll send that to you to see what you think.

How does that sound? -Patrick




Helmut Licht

7/17/2008 9:55:00 PM
Hey Patrick - I keep getting back any email I send you. I will get to your lead sheet this weekend. If you want the lyrics to be on it I should hear how you adjusted the melody (as you mentioned). Also, let me know your key!!
Helmut
