You Never Said Goodbye

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Thought I throw this in the fray. :) Key of C. Chords include C/Am/F/G. Pretty simple lyrically and melodically. Would like your thoughts on this little tune.

You Never Said Goodbye

Chapman Jones ...

There's a dollar on my table

Been sitting there a while

I keep thinkin maybe someday

Go out and buy me a smile

I dont think it'll happen

It's been far too long

And I ain't been one for smlin'

Since you been gone

A breeze walks by the front porch

The screen door made a noise

I look up from the table

Thought I heard a voice

Callin' out my name

There it goes again

I don't see a soul around

Must be the wind


Oh the wind blows through the pines

Sends a chill up and down my spine

You never told me why

You never said goodbye


The Georgia air's a-closin in

Guess I was the fool

Many a night when the moon was bright

Your touch'd keep me cool

Now it's but a day-dream

I heard the sound again

Must be that old screen door

Rattlin' in the wind

Oh the wind blows through the pines

Sends a chill up and down my spine

You never told me why

You never said goodbye

Glad to hear you haven't lost your touch LC - this one sounds like you are channeling a cross between Dylan (wind blowing + blues harp) and Gordon Lightfoot - it works for me. Nice fancy picking too, and of course great lyrics and singing. :punk:

      This is just something I came up with last year while messing around on my Tanglewood, using a strum/stop rhythm method, capo on 2nd fret

      Recorded about 9 or 10 years ago.  I still like it.

      Hello Musicians,
      I've been studying for about a year now. It has taken me three months or more to learn a three-chord song (ADE). Last night when I was practicing, I felt like I could finally move to the different chords while keeping the 4/4 rhythm. In order to get this breakthrough, I tried to introduce a new strum pattern. Instead of the usual down-down-down-down. I tried a slap and an upstroke. This seemed to help me go ease into the 4/4 rhythm with the downstroke.  So I'm finding that I'm going to have to find out what works and feels right for me. It seemed like I may learn incidentally. I'm going to try it with another song. 
      This will be interesting. I was becoming so frustrated, but last night I had a breakthrough. I notice an improvement. If anyone has similar stories of improving on songs, I'd like to hear them. I'd also like to know how you mastered barre chords. My fingers are getting callouses.

      I haven't posted anything is a while, so here is one from a few years back.

      Hello there!
      I'm an absolute beginner - I got my first guitar, a Rogue RA-090 Concert Acoustic-Electric, yesterday, and am so looking forward to learning more about this wonderful world of guitar music. I have a problem though; yesterday night, I tuned my guitar, learned a couple chords and practiced. Everything worked perfectly fine and I was having a great time.

      Today I decided to pick it up again despite the finger pain, and learned the D Major chord. I had my fingers in the right place, and when I played the chord, I noticed a loud buzz. I figured out after playing the strings individually that the buzz was coming from the B string on the 3rd fret of the guitar. I tried to fix it by changing the positioning of my fingers around and pressing harder/lighter, but nothing got rid of the buzz.

      I then tried to play every other string on the 3rd fret, and the same problem occurred - every string that I played on the 3rd fret of the guitar had a loud, noticeable buzz with it. I tried changing the positioning and pressure again, and nothing worked. I proceeded to then test every other fret on the guitar and they all worked beautifully, it's just that the 3rd fret has a horrible buzz whenever I play it.

      Is there any way to get rid of the buzz? Should I go to my local guitar store and talk to the repair specialist there? Is it possible to fix it myself?

      Thank you so much for reading; as a beginner, I appreciate all the help I can get.
