Re: Y13W48 Moon‏ Over Cat Sanova

Hi David, wondering both why and how you came up with the measure of five beats for the first lines of the choruses It wasn't a conscious effort on my part. I was just going with what sounded good. :roll: For whatever reason I like the idea of the "for now goodbye" being the closing line. Yes, I did...

Re: Song a Week 46

Hi Barry, Nice work :D I like the feel of the song, use of 4 chords and prosody of words and music. The one area that I'd consider revising is V4 b/c the rest of the song does a good job of being in the moment, but to mention "feel like a crime"....and "I seem to find" seems a bit forced....just try...

Then again, if a gorge...

Re: Song a week 44 - Committed

Hi Barry, Welcome to SSG :mrgreen: Nice work on the basic chord progression and adding the drums. What program do you use for your drums? I like the wording in v1 with: sun, splash water, face, wash -nice concrete details. Consider using more in the other verses as well. This line could be tweaked a...
