Not a rock-n-roll song... (Needs no drums / guitar or hand-grenades!) I would keep it simple, since It's more of a prayer song. Thanks, Mike

Yeah, I haven't changed the genre listing from the original. I keep getting in too big of a hurry and forgetting that "piano" is listed under "keyboards." Drives me nuts honestly. I wish it had its own listing. Would you hate me terribly if I asked if you could do piano as well? I know the song is difficult because I just made it up as I went along, and that is not really the right way to write a song. But I enjoy it so much, I can't seem to stop! If there are changes you need to make for it to be a good piano song, I would try re singing it to match. I don't quite have this melody stuck in my head yet, which I think makes it easier to be flexible. Thanks, Shannon

Hi Shannon, I can add a piano to my version. (But, I think it sounds best simple, because it doesn't sound like all the other songs out there. It's original.) I do like your idea to Spin the song... (I like the process that allows different versions of the same song. I would suggest continuing to use this to create other versions : ) My first thought was to make it an "East Asian" version with sitar and tabla drums added to the strings and synths in my current version. That would have taken it even further in an original direction! Actually, having your vocal lines already there makes it easier (for me) to build an accompaniment. Without your vocals it's impossible to create counter-point or harmony for the song, and the quality of the song suffers, sounds disconnected. Thanks for considering my ideas! Mike
