Re: Is It You, I Wonder

I like your song; my favorite line is, "And your quizzical brow,/Seems way to furrowed now"--really has a nice swing to it. Also, using the capo makes it sound kind of etherial, which I like.

Re: Is It You, I Wonder

Thanks MB - This came up from the way I think of myself and who I see when I look in the mirrow, which is a much older version of the face I remember. I agree on the capo too I use it for many songs so I can hit the notes, but others I use it to get a more folky sound or the etherial you're talking about.
