GUEST,Tom Bliss The folk process and songwriting (75* d) RE: The folk process and songwriting 29 Nov 09

Just endorsing Stallion's point of view from the writer's perspective. I almost never heard versions of my songs because people never sang them in my presence - but Bruce Bailley's version of The Violin (on YouTube) is fascinating - still my song but with a whole different mood and therefore interpretation, and last week a brave lass chirped up with a version of Four Foot Track at the Chemic session in Leeds. Again, still my song, but made very much her own (fitting with her own writing and guitar style) - and all the better for it. I noticed things I'd missed when I made it up (and was so engrossed I could barely play along ;-)
