May 19, 2022  -  User Showcase Song - Good Thing I Gave My Heart To You

A co-write with my buddy Reid Richmond.

Good Thing I Gave My Heart To You

Since this song was published and pitched by Sony/ATV there is a knock-out demo for it.
That demo would EASILY win any comparison to the version that I have created.
Hands down. No question.
It has the perfect hat-act-cowboy-singer vocal and all the perfect fiddle and guitar licks.
(It was pitched to most of the top hat-acts at the time. 1998-ish)
I don't have that type voice and it would be tough to get BIAB to include the type of fills and licks that happen in the original.
(not impossible, but a good deal of work. And since I can't sing that style well, there wasn't much point in trying)
That being the case I will not include the original demo initially.

I decided to produce it as a sort of Country-Lite/Americana/Songwriter thing.
I think I can pull that off.

After a week or so, I will include a link to the original somewhere in this thread.
...if you feel like hearing it, stop back by later
(it will be obvious why I don't include it to start with...guaranteed)
