Song I wrote (EDIT: added another one)
Feedback on this song I just wrote would be great. Feels like a bluegrass song to me. Obviously this is a rough recording and I know I can't sing lol
Old Dead Trees

EDIT: Added this one

Singer Or Saint

Chords are nice . Lyrics are suspect . Vocals a little more suspect. But I admire your effort and again the chords are very nice

That doesn't suck. Your picking fits the song.

Not bad at all. Like the picking, agree that it does feel like a bluegrass song.

I think the only thing that could help that is going to the crossroads lol

really like the chord progression. Maybe slow it down a little bit and record it again? Might be easier to sing it, just a little slower.

Maybe try it in a couple different keys? Might find 1 that's easier for you to sing it in.
might try tuning down 1/2 step too, that helps sometimes.

Good song. I think your voice fits the song, but need to work on hitting some of those notes.

Nice work though -

Slow it down/ tighten it up. Sounds like a song that could be used on oh brother where art thou soundtrack (that’s a compliment).

Old dead trees
And old steel strings
Old sad songs, cut like a knife
Old dead trees
And old steel strings
Wont you tell me, about my life


This is a great chorus for the traveling balladeer...but it doesn't seem to match with the rest of the song.

Dead trees means wood and strings and wood mean guitars. Its talking about songs that reflect his life. So Lonesome I Could Cry and He Stopped Loving Her Today are in the first verse, the second verse refers to Copperhead Road and Mama Tried, and the the third verse is just a general reference to all the different jail songs.
Basically this guy screwed up his life and is sitting in jail reflecting on how these songs tell his life's story.

I like it.

It'd be a good one for the Soggy Bottom Boys to record.

I like the premise. Just need to work on the vocals.

Here's one I recorded in my kitchen on my iPad. Hope y'all like it. I posted it before in another music board thread. Lots of music boarder music there, I'll link it.

Thanks, I like your song too. Yeah lol I've wrote a ton of songs but I'm kind of lacking in the voice and skill department so they just sit around.
