Song 7

Song seven is almost done (the music, not the words). The last two bars of the bridge are taking their time. I've tried to rush them but they need to be given time to develop on their own.

It is in Eb and goes: Ab, F, E7, Eb... Ab, F, Eb ... / Repeat that. Then D diminished, Eb... / The bridge starts out in Db minor, then Eb. Then I kind of get lost. I've modulate up a fourth to a key I don't know very well, Ab. Then I have to find my way back to the original key.

The tune sounds chromatic even though it is totally diatonic until the modulation in the bridge.
