Re: You Wake Up

I've been ruminating about this one. My best songs are usually about people that I know well but don't have an emotional relationship with. When a piece is about a loved one or myself, it gets kind of "sticky" and self indulgent. When its about someone else, I'm able to approach it from a neutral po...

Re: You Wake Up

I hadn't looked in the Sunday forum for a couple weeks so I missed this until now. Very nice. Perhaps your best song/recording that I've heard. Very gentle and thoughtful.
Great tribute to David.

Re: IF

You are really stepping up the pace Chefie. I like this, a lot. I like the melody, I like the repetition, I like the thought involved, I like the bridge.

Hobson! Glad you are still around. I haven't found a forum to get involved with on a egula basis.

Regarding my original post, I forgot the classic formula is [time + tragedy = comedy]

Re: Loving and Living

Great idea for a song. I think we have all heard the "Dancing like no one is watching" lines but I've never heard it in a song. I think that you are pushing the tempo too fast. Speed does not make the song. I tried slowing it down and just playing G G6 Gmaj7 G6 Am Am6 Am7 Am6 Am D Dadd9 D Dadd4th D ...

Re: Funny / Not Funny

No responses ? Sheesh. Anybody? How does one narrow down people to single dimension, to focus on the humerous aspect while negating the tragic?

Re: Funny / Not Funny

There is a song, Accokeek, by my favorite song writer, Michael Smith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwE8pG3ZrE8

The song is about a woman that kills her husband and cuts him up. It is a very funny song. I wonder how Michael got around the tragic aspect.

Funny / Not Funny

This is not a song. It's a post about process. I woke in the middle of the night and suddenly had the start of a song. I had read a blurb in the local paper about a woman that poisoned her husband. She had previously poisoned him a few years earlier but failed to kill him a that time. A bit of the s...

Re: Words

Interesting sound. I'm not sure I understood what it was about. Keep at it. God knows that I have lots of equipment and toys but haven't really figured out how best to use them.
