    He is awesome, what I find funny is that he tests the tuning with dark, minory noodling and then jumps into a more major song. It is funny because he does the exact opposite on another one. He noodles in major and then launches into a really somber tune. I'll see if I can dig it up.

      I agree. Still, it was fun sticking to that cool rhyme pattern.

        Here is my direct influence for this one... in fact, it was around midnight the other night and I decided I wanted to watch this video before bed... as soon as it ended, I picked up the guitar and tried to come up with something cool, which ended up being this song.

            He was, I believe, a FIT discovery for me.

              Yeah. I think so. You can do a lot with what you have. You got a couple of three pretty cool and stand on their own hooks or motives. (there's that word again). Then again, it is short enough that a 3rd verse might be cool. Or a bridge, something altogether new.

                I'm hoping to work on this tonight... didn't have the energy last night to do anything really.



                What do you think of an instrumental bridge, then the chorus one last time, but very subdued... almost to the point of it being vocals only... maybe just acoustic guitar and vocal... very quiet.

                    Are the foot pedals a mechanical or an electronic connection?

                        Bee posted a terrific version of this on the sister site.

                        Sometimes I'm good in certain company

                        Other times I sit awkwardly alone

                        It may be due to circumstance

                        That I prefer to take a chance alone



                        Sometimes I feel like just letting go

                        Turn out the lights, turn on the stereo



                        Sometimes I'm into reciprocity

                        Avoiding all animosity... I know

                        It's a perfect plan 'cause it works for me

                        And in my head where no one else can see... I'm prone

                        I love, but felt it phrased funny in a few spots, so I offered an alternate:

                        Here you go, Bee. I just played through from start to the end of C2, offering two alternates for that opening C line. Personally, I like using the second option as a twist on listener expectations, though I'm not sure I'd do it in C2, I might save it for C3.



                        I also dropped the "where" from the last line of V2, not only does that flow better, IMO, but it clarifies the line for me. Do with this what you wish.



                        You sang "sometimes" and "turn out" more casually, which is better than I have here.



                        We are just looking for some feedback on which phrasing you prefer.
