November 18, 2019  -  User Showcase Song - Dad

This is a song of tribute to my dad who passed away in Oct 2016. My sister Lisa wrote a poem at the time called Dad as a remembrance.

recently I was playing my guitar with the capo on fret 6. D, Am, C, G. pretty basic but sounds very pretty with the capo.

I was wondering what to do with it when the anniversary of my dad's passing came and I looked up this poem again.
Loaded up BIAB.
Made a chord sequence. Picked a style. and now I have a song.
