Cover A Friend's Song

Very few of us will ever have one of our original songs 'covered' by anyone. It's a shame, because hearing somebody else's spin on your tune can be very cool indeed!

Why not trade songs with a friend? You learn their song and they learn yours.

Go to an open mic and play the songs 'live.' Bring friends that are familiar with your song.

It's a lot of fun. Try it this week!

    At my favorite joint, we occasionally host a "Song Swap" night, where everyone plays a song by another of the regular crowd. It really does offer people a new way of looking at their own material -- sometimes hearing it with the genders switched, or with other slight tweaks to the lyrics, can make a huge difference in the way it's received. I strongly recommend the idea.
