alanabit Advice to all singer songwriters (147* d) RE: Advice to all singer songwriters 20 May 13

"If it is telling someone else's story it will still have something of you in it. I think."

Nice post from Rockhen there. In a way she has nailed what I like about George's or Big Al Whittle's songs. They tell the stories or show the characters in their own way. It would probably make quite an interesting challenge to invite a group of writing students to tell the story of say Goldilocks and the Three Bears. You could probably get a bunch of entertaining versions of the same story. Although you always hear George's and Al's voice in the songs, they always concentrate on showing the story. I suppose that is the balance which marks out the good from the mediocre writer.
