I don’t know about you, but I have a whole bunch of songs that I think are great. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve always been an aspiring songwriter. I think I’m just lucky that I’ve always had an ear for music, and I’ve tried to write a song for a long time.
So what if you dont? Well, you can still write a song. It’s just that you can’t perform it live.
Folk songwriting is a tricky thing. I mean, Ive written a song called “I Love You So Hard.” I know you can’t perform it live, but I know there are thousands of people out there who would love to hear that song, and Im here to tell you that most folk songwriters dont write in the same way. If you want to write a song like that, you have to rely on the written word and not the live performance.
I think the reason folk songwriters dont write in the same way is because theyre not necessarily good folk songwriters. I mean, people usually like good folk songs, but theyre not necessarily good ones. Most folk songwriters just write out of fear, not because they think they can really write a good song. Theyre not the people I would recommend to sit in a pub with, but they can just as easily be the people you should avoid at all costs.
There are two main ways to write a folk song. The first is to write it for the purpose of singing it live, and the second is to write it for the purpose of recording it on a record. I would recommend the second method, but, like I said in the beginning, I think it is the most intimidating thing to do. The first method can be done in a much more relaxed manner, and it also doesn’t take a lot of time.
The easiest way to get people to sing a folk song is to simply use it as a hook for a song. I’ll illustrate this with the song “The Way We Were” by Bob Dylan from his album “Blonde on Blonde.” There are numerous ways people have recorded Dylan’s song.
When I was in high school and college, I remember being very impressed with a young man named David who decided to take up the tradition of recording folk songs. After hearing my version of The Way We Were, he went and recorded it with his band, and it blew up. To me it was as good as any song ever written.
Well, I don’t know about the song “the way we were” but I sure am glad it’s no longer being used by the Dylan band to write songs. Like me, David would like to start using this song in his own songs.
Yes, I would like to see the song used in a Dylan song. I mean, I think Dylan is an awesome singer, but I think their song might have been better, so I think they would have used it. If you have any ideas for songs that might fit the bill, email me.
I’m glad that the folk-rock song seems to be used in some Dylan songs. I’m sure that they would have liked their song to be used in a Dylan song, but I think it might have been better to have used it in a song that was a closer to the lyrics, like the song that David wrote.
