What its about

Clarity: the art of being Clare

Written for daughter Clare on her eighteenth birthday

How it was written

Clare is heavily into musical theatre and so the song is written in the style of a musical

The song is in C and follows a fairly standard pattern but theres a bit of experimentation with the chord changes now and again

For example instead of the usual C-F-G progression in the verse use C-Eb-G instead

Eb not F (0:08)
Clarity C-Eb-G chords
Em-F-D-G (0:14)

And a bit of fun in the chorus

This would be a lovely piece for a duet
