Here’s a little songwriting lesson, kiddies … never write a song that takes more talent to perform than you currently possess.
Just tonight, I wrote a new song, and the guitar part is over my head. Oh, I can play it. Sometimes. But not consistently, and not with the sustained quality necessary to get me through all three and a half minutes of the song.
Sure, I’ll keep practicing it. It’s a good song and worth the effort, I think. But for me to record it now would be more effort than I can muster. So I’ll cipher on my household finances, instead.
