If you want to do the Acoustic Guitar Singer Songwriter thing, thisis how to do it. A poem, a story a ballad, a simple melody and a guitar part that stands up by itself, hamer ons, simple chords and and a straight forward finger picking hand. Dan Fogelbergs death was a loss to the musical community. But the beauty of the technology we have is it’s ability to capture and freeze time.
A sentimental tune and it was great that he was successful with it because many people would have got to hear a lot of his other music. If you are not aware of Dan Fogelbergs music, explore his first few albums. This guy is good and as a singer songwriter it’s the level to aspire to.
