  • Hey! I'm Just Being Nice! Revisit and chorus vid

    I'm thinking of maybe diving back into this one. I've got a chorus idea only. See vid. Didn't quite nail it. At the end of that there's a riff.  I was going to use that as an intro but... why not write the verse over the riff? Have Dean play the riff on slide and I'll do it on acoustic and low keys piano maybe. Bonham meets country drums...


     


    The whole thing would be a sort of Kenny Chesney gulf vibe meets the Zep.


     


    What do you guys think. About any of this. Does the phrase Hey! I'm Just Being Nice make any more sense when you here the treatment I'm giving it or it is a wrong move? Any input is welcome.


    I


    Hey, I

    I think "Hey, I'm just being nice" is good. I still don't really think the setup line is where it needs to be.

    What if you tried

        O?

        Funny, I was going to say something similar, though IMO it isn't the words that need more bite, but the delivery.  Not saying the words couldn't use it, just that you need that sarcasm to appear there as well as the closing line.

        I know, I was poking fun at you for calling Ryan, "O".

          That's pretty good. I don't know if it has as much general appeal, but I totally get where you're coming from and think its great.

          Find yourself another sucker, get a clue, get a life. Hey! I'm just being nice

          That's pretty good and I think it has more general appeal. The only thing I'm not huge on, and this is super picky (but hey, that's why yall pay me the big bucks). I'm not sure I like find, get, get as the verbs. I think three different verbs would sing better.

        I love that ^^^ but I'm not sure I understand. Why is he wanting his pick played twice? I love the way that sounds

          Well, I've done countless barroom gigs where I've had well intentioned fans trap me into conversations... And the d-bag side of me took hold when I came up with that line. So it's kind of a snarky sentiment.

            Oh... and by my song, I literally meant 'my' song.

              Snark is right for this occasion

              Slant rhyme?

                Definitely the punch I'm looking for.  How's it sing?

              I think it'll sing well. Better than what was there for sure

                I love the little riff at the end of the vid - don't underestimate it.

                I can hear it integrated into most of the chorus. It may even change where some of your emphases fall in the lyric. Set up a loop and sing over it - see where it might take you. Go on now.........
