It isn't the finished article but it is getting there. not a heavy tune, more acoustic but quite bouncy and fun.

Ray Davies? You know, I have never owned anything by the Kinks. I don't dislike them but I never really got into them. I guess I just sound too english :D As for the songwriting, it is just trying to do something I like. I used to write originals back in 1988-1993, but I would always try to be too clever. Now I just write a tune I like (ie hopefully melodic) and the words seem to be a lot easier once the base tune is there. I used to do it the other way round. but this way seems to work quite well.

I have a fairly weak voice but it fits quirky songs and that is why I stick to them :D As for the solo, I kept it short and sweet because my finger is still very painful.

Thanks for the compliments sgstd - you always take the time to listen to my stuff and that is much appreciated. :thumb:

In some parts, it indeed reminded me of Beatles, but that's probably your British accent fault :D.
J/k, very neat tune Goport. Chapter One, Chapter Two stuff was really funny! What was there about 'She was only 15 years old, but who'd really know' part ? Could you post lyrics or something :)?
