Soft acoustic. That's my most basic, simple song.

It's good. What would be neat is if the song sounded a bit mysterious. A band interpretation would give it that element. Have you searched for a band?

Yes. I actually have a guy who would play piano, but I can't find a drummer, a lead guitarist, or a bassist. I also offered my services to a current band, who have yet to take me up on that.

I never really wrote that particular song for a band setting, that was always sort of an acoustic number, but I think it has some potential.

I think Fireworks is probably the best one I have. It's also the most, er, biographical, so I suppose it's not a coincidence.

Do you know anybody in the local music scene there? Maybe they know others who are looking to make a band. A drummer at least. A trio of you, the pianist and a drummer would make a nice band.

I don't think I know any available drummers. The only ones I know are in a band or not in a state to play with one.

Sometimes songs sound great when there is a simple element played over something like drums or piano. You should try to mix piano or synthesizers with Floating In Between.

Can I read Fireworks?

Yeah, I'll send you that too. It's much more of band based idea.

Now I really like that. It open and honest. The chorus could be really haunting if you put the right music to it.

That came out of my idea to right about one night this past summer with a girl, and it worked out really well. I actually remember writing the first copy of the lyrics and feeling I didn't do it justice. I came back and read it a night or two ago, made a revision or two, and realized I had a good one written up.

It is very good. I think it would make a great single if you make it that far. Again that chorus could be haunting if done right.

The chorus was the first thing I came up with after the title.

What kind of music were you thinking of putting to it?

That's been the struggle for me: I can hear the melody, but I haven't been able to come up with the right music for it. In fact, I wrote an entire piece for the lyrics to this and ended up using it for a different song, just because it didn't work well for this.

I want the chorus to be a big sound, though. Something that my vocals can soar over.

Maybe the piano friend can beat the melody down on the keyboard as you sing over it with slide guitars? At least that is how I imagine something like it soaring.
