"Sweet Josephine"

Many of you have asked to be able to hear "Sweet Josephine", my new song for our little baby girl!  So, I am sharing it with you here!  CLICK-> SWEET JOSEPHINE

Here is a listening guide as well :)  Remember what we discussed: songwriting is made much easier and more successful when their is a clear FORM.  Form is simply how each SECTION flows from one to the other.  Starting in kindergarten, we've been learning about A and B sections.  In 4th Grade, we add the C section when we talk about Rondo form.  Look at the layout of sections for "Sweet Josephine"!

A Intro (guitar)
A Verse 1 (+Mr. Henry's voice)
A Interlude (+piano)
A Verse 2 (+Josephine's heartbeat)
B Chorus
A Verse 3 (+Djembe, +Cello, +Viola)
B Chorus x2 (+French Horn)
C Bridge (+Bass Drum, +Cymbals, +World Percussion, +Vocal Harmony, +Violin, +Trombone)
B Chorus (+Gong)
B Chorus Instrumental (+Glockenspiel)
