So I’m off to Mt. Hope Bible Camp in a few days. I wanted to hit up as many open mics as I could before then, so I trekked to Angelica’s Bistro in Redwood City. The food is good and the talent, great. I played three songs:
1. Scarborough Fair (traditional, arrangement)
2. When We Were Young (original)
3. I Need You (original)
I’m quite satisfied with “I Need You,” though I’m working on an ending. The last verse has been changed from, “Except to listen closely, and hope you are there” to “Except to close my eyes, and know you are there.” What’s needed now is an instrumental “outro.”
