This is my first attempt at writing a song. This is key of E on my A harmonica. This was quite hard but I finally got through so thank you Dave I greatly appreciate all your help. I've been playing 1 year and 47 weeks.

Thanks Phil Anderson

You did a good job throwing in some chording! There were a few rushed parts in there, but you did a good job of evening things back out. Try toe tapping or swaying to keep the rhythym (unless that will throw you off even more...ha!). I think you did a fantastic job for your first time song writing!

Some strong playing for less

Some strong playing for less than 2 years.  I was impressed with some of your tongue blocking skills.  Right on!  Some creative melodies you got happening there.  Had a surprise ending to boot with the rubato and fade out.  Big thanks for your submission and very best of luck to you!

Nice use of dynamics right

Nice use of dynamics right away. You got my toes tapping and they stayed that way (you rushed a touch in some places… mostly pickups… but it was overall good). Nice sequence of your main melody at :17. Nice shake variation at 1:23. Good job… thank you very much for your submission.
