Topic: Ashes to Ashes (needs more chords)

hey i wrote this song and it kinda needs more chords
it's acoustic and kinda sounds like Cafe rock-ish stuff

Chordpro error: This is not a valid artistname. You will have to specify an artistname in the form {st: Artistname} in the beginning of the code.

i know it sounds all hippie and stuff but it's the fist song i've written music to...
please tell me what you think (i don't care if it sounds mean)

Re: Ashes to Ashes (needs more chords)

Honestly I think it's fine the way it is. I'm a hippie so I like coffee house hippie stuff <img src="images/smiley_icons/icon_biggrin.gif" border=0 alt="Very Happy">

"Nobody paints by ear so why would I play guitar by sight?" hmm

Re: Ashes to Ashes (needs more chords)

i reckon it only needs one or 2 more chords, check this out chord progressions help when you're writing a song though dont be scared to throw a random chord in there if it sounds good:

<a href="*&get2=Get" target="_blank"> … s.php?scch =E&scchnam=Major+triads+I-ii-iii-IV-V-vi-vii*&get2=G et</a>

i suggest one of the minors like f#m or g#m.

hope this helps:)


PS. this is just one type of progression, look at all the other ones on the website too.
