After finding an arrowhead and learning about the forced removal of the Wyandot Nation, I wrote this song. Two nights ago I played it for my wife. She thought the strumming pattern was too busy. She also didn't like the percussive sound of my pick hitting the strings. I went ahead and recorded it today. I kept the mike away from my strumming hand so the percussion wouldn't make it in the song too much but I kept the strumming pattern pretty much the same. Then I added a short lead intro track in the beginning and I improvised an lead track over the song near the end. One of my frustrations was not being able to come up with another strumming pattern that didn't sound boring to me. That's why I left it the same.
Here's the song:
After listening to it some more...I've decided to overhaul this song. It's just not working for me. I wish I wouldn't have posted it. But, oh well. Here are my self criticisms. The intro is too short and weak. The vocals don't fit very well within the strumming pattern. There's too much static on the lead track at the end. I'm going to beef up the intro, re-do the lead track at the end and maybe add a drum track. I'm going to use a metronome to help me rework the lyrics so I can sing them with better timing. Back to work for me.
