GUEST,j How Many Verses? (49) RE: How Many Verses? 24 Dec 16

Impossible really. Some would enjoy a 40 verser and others could be falling asleep after 1 verse.

Not that I have any long songs I'd remember, I think much revolves around a wider time, place and what will fit with the mood question

I think its about trying to fit in a lot on the time. I'm not a performer but lets say "Smile in your sleep" could e a good choice another a dead dog scrumpy" in some places (I play mostly in instrumental do), you might even question whether to open your gob at all is in keeping (as well as whether the established ways take kindly to songs).

Maybe i we are looking at something like taking it in turns perhaps floor singing in a folk club 4 verses is a reasonable guideline but there are many different situations.
