Re: IF

I'm not familiar with the words that were the inspiration for this. Definitely a song where the simple repetition of the idea works very well. Nice job.

Re: It's the Little Things

I apologize. That was my first reading. Your intent does come through clearly in the chorus and maybe asking the questions in each verse gives the song a little more zing than my suggestion.

Re: It's the Little Things

I'm not sure what mood you're going for. The first verse sounds positive. Then, it seems like you're saying that the little good things can't possibly make up for the big bad things. I'm sure that your intent wasn't sarcasm, but it comes across that way to me. Suggestion: instead of "what's a little...

Re: Loving and Living

I really like the lyrics. At first I was wondering about how well being hurt in the past fit with the feel of the song, but then it made sense in contrast with the euphoria of being in love now. I agree that the tempo seems too fast. I think you should try more of a dance tempo. Maybe have a slower ...

Re: Funny / Not Funny

John, you don't have to stick to the facts. I think what you have written is a good start. Just go with it and see how it turns out. It's too early in the process for criticism, even self criticism. I confess that I haven't even been lurking here anymore. I was on another forum and got tired of the ...

Re: Ya4W34 - I Meant No Disrespect (bass added)

Thanks. The muse hasn't been cooperating lately, but now I have a few songs in the works. Some for SSG that I never completed. The tune for this one came quickly. The lyrics were rewritten several times.

Ya4W34 - I Meant No Disrespect (bass added)

No changes in this version, except that I've added bass guitar. The bass is a Kala Ubass that I've had for 4 or 5 months, but haven't played enough. This is my first original song posting with bass. It was kind of fun figuring out a suitable bass part. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.c...

Re: Stand for Kala U-Bass?

In case anyone else needs the info, I've ordered this stand: http://www.elderly.com/hercules-single-instrument-cradle-stand.htm I have been assured by a guy at Elderly that he actually tried the stand with a U-bass and it works. He also said that this cheaper stand works: http://www.elderly.com/ulti...

Re: Y14W17 - One Eye on the Future

I agree that there is nothing very interesting in the music. This is just a framework that could could use some more instruments or harmonies. I don't normally write country songs. I've had this kind of stuff on my brain because I've been accompanying a country singer. That will end soon and I hope ...

Stand for Kala U-Bass?

OK, I know I'll probably be laughed out of the bass players discussion, but does anybody have a Kala U-bass? I just bought one this week and I want a stand for it. Something more secure than an A-frame, but easily transportable. Guitar stands are too big. My mando/violin stand doesn't work because t...

Re: Y14W13 - If I Had a Year

Thanks for the comments. Sirdroid, I confess that I had no idea what you were trying to say. I think maybe you posted to the wrong thread. After playing around with some other ideas, I plan to leave the last verse as is. John, yeah, this is a rough time for all involved. I really had trouble singing...

Re: Year 14 Week 14 Downtime Blues

I like the rewrite too. I think the lyrics have universal appeal.
