GUEST,Alley Making a Song Sound Right (25) Making a Song Sound Right 09 Nov 05


I could sit for hours and listen to someone play guitar and sing. The songs sound great. Why is it, then, when I play a song it doesn't sound that good? Yes, I know the chords, and yes, I use a flatpick and can strum. Is it using a particular "strum" that makes a song sound good, and if so, how do you know the correct "strum." This probably seems like a foolish question, and I'm leaving myself wide open for receiving "smart" responses, but I really do want to know. I'm ready for your comments!
