So here is something for both of you to consider. Kieth Richards wrote that songwriting is like chasing butterflies with a net, if you don't catch it you lose it, it doesn't belong to you until you have it. That suggests to me that songwriters, perhaps even me, might grab songs in their net that didn't really belong to them, they just reeled them in...

Our nets seem usually to catch songs that fit us as who we are, our personalities. But that doesn't mean something else doesn't slip into the net on occasion and sits there stoically awaiting the folks that can bring it to life.


yep, thanks for trying anyway....

:lol: :roll:

drat, drat, and double-drat to those evil butterflies!!!! :evil:

I see a lot of starving "Uncover"l bands around here. If you want to gig & make some $$ do covers & throw in a few songs written by the band. I make every song I play my own & hate when the band wants to sound just like the album.
