Song for Remixing

Here's the song I submitted to the TAXI TV today. Just as glad it didn't get played since there's one spot where the guitar got offbeat... And it needs better drums.

For what it's worth - the lyrics/story line sound like something that coulda been sung by a Loretta Lynn to a Wynona Judd; while it also had a Johnny Cash/June Carter vibe to it.
If that's a positive critique, and you'd want to develop it in that direction, a solid Johnny Cash-style train-beat/shuffle might be a good fit.
Not exactly this - but sorta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mqZPb9UUgs

If it were mine to produce - I'd go full Old-School Country with that tick-tack Telecaster chicken-pickin', and some pedal steel guitar... maybe piano & whistling B-3.
But hey - that's just me. :? :shock:
IMHO - it's well-written. :P

Hope that helps.

EDIT: Why not copy & re-post your song your notes on the Peer-To-Peer board?

It sounds more folk than country, imo.
If you make her a good husband
that threw me for a minute, 8-) , if he makes her a good husband, I was expecting something about a wife. I dunno, "if you're a good husband for her"?? If she thinks you're a good husband??

Thanks, Peter & Len!

LOL on making her a good husband. It does kind of have overtones of Dr. Frankenstein, doesn't it? :lol: It's an older dialectical choice. If she thinks you're a good husband could definitely fit the prosody. I'll take it under advisement. :D

Remixing Old School Country or Johnny/June style sounds like fun. Pity it isn't hip enough to use in that listing for the Modern Country artist. :)

Reposting in Peer to Peer is a good idea. Thanks. I'll quote y'all's posts in the post.

Merry :)
