its called How Love has Fallen or I don't wanna be your Fool- not sure yet
wrote as I played sorta tune, i was thinking country-alas thinking country and playing are two very diffrent things
This was a quickie done in the hotel-
looking for arrangement/addition thoughts
piano? drums? screamin strat? where should this song end up? Faster/slower heavier or stay acoustic? its still up in the air. I like the song though...

Wow, that's a great offering.

I'm pretty partial to the clean feel of it. If I was playing with it, I'd add things sparingly, with a heavy dose of 'maybe not' already mixed in. Something would have to really work for me to leave it in.

Great piece.

Thinking again, maybe during that later part, without vocals, something could be put in there, to keep the listener's attention. I'm gonna guess that's why you put it there =).

Maybe a light piano, or a single violin (or fiddle). Harmonica comes to mind, but it's been done, and seems kinda trite with the song / your voice. It would scream "I'm trying to be like Bob Dylan".

This is just idle thoughts, on my day off =)

I kinda agree with PJK. I was thinking of maybe starting out just accoustic and vocals, then bust in with some energetic drums for the hook, and then back down to vox and accoustic again for second verse. Maybe some mournful, but rocking harmonica or fiddle for the "bridge" with the drums...

I don't know, just thinking out loud...

thanks yes, the "empty part is for a lead of some sort- and thrown the drums on the chorus, and thru the lead part and end.
