FDP Forum / Tin Pan Alley - Songwriting / My 1st - be gentle!

I finally decided to take the musical ideas that bounce around in my head and turn them into actual songs. This is the 1st one that I have completed and gone into a studio and recorded. I'm in a few bands - this one is called The Stray Dogs and is a honky tonk - americana - roots - rock band. This song is in that genre and is called Don't Want You. I'm the bass player on this tune. Feel free to comment as I'd like to get better at songwriting. thanks -

Don't Want You

Hey, this is great! Real old-school and comfortable. Nice rhymes and meter. Excellent performance, too, sweet guitar picking and good singing.

Nothing to be shy about in this one. A fine start as a songwriter.

Btw, I'm an amateur songwriter taking part in my second FAMW (February Album Writing Month), an online challenge to write an album's-worth of songs in a single month! It's intense, but it can be done, and it's fun! (If you look it up, it's www.fawm.ORG, not .COM, which a pron site.) Cheers.
