For “Lullabye,” i borrowed the melody from the bridge of Plush by Stone Temple Pilots. Plush came out in 1992 and I was born in ’93, but my dad used to tell me that plush always reminded him of coming home to me as a baby, so I figured bending the rules might be okay. The chords are just G, C, D, C with a capo on 2, which I also borrowed from a Fall Out Boy song—one of the first songs I learned to play on guitar when I was 15 or so.
i think this is the first song i’ve ever written and recorded, so that’s pretty cool!
Looking for feedback on
I'm not the most skilled guitarist, but I did try to pull off a little percussive picking effect here. Does that work at all? I think this could probably benefit from a little variation from both hands, I'm just not exactly sure where I should start with that. Any tips would be appreciated!
