How long did it take you to write Marry me? Believe it
or not I have worked on it about 250 hours over a 3 month period! This
of course does include practice time as well.
Why did it take so long to write?
Because I have a day job and could only work on it during my spare
time. Also there were revisions & changes that extended the process.
In addition it was my first song recorded in a studio and I had a lot to
Did you find anything hard about the
recording process? Singing with headphones on has
proved to be the most difficult thing for me so far. In fact it took
as long to do the vocals as everything else combined.
Is this the first song you have written? It is not
the first I have written but it is the first one I have ever finished.
What musical genre do you consider
your songs to
be? It has been hard to say as it could be Country, Rock, Pop.
Inspirational or Easy Listening. The songs seem to have a
crossover appeal for almost anyone. But it is listed as Pop.
What kind of acoustic guitar did you play? I played a
Guild D-55 that has been adjusted to carry a heavier gauge string.
This allows a deeper tone with a long sustain on a guitar that already
has a deep sound. I have owned several types of guitars but the Guild
is by far my favorite due to its rich & unique tonal quality.
Do you plan to tour or put a band
together? At this time no such plans exist. For now I
just consider myself a songwriter.
