Annie McIntyre

All parents see their children as beautiful, and that principle applies to composers and songwriters as well. The melody for Annie McIntyre came as a result of my reading an interview with Dickie Betts about his approach to writing music. I played around first with chord progressions until I found one that seemed to take hold of me. At first I was thinking the usual two-part or three-part instrumental, so I decided to start with an A part with the progression that had my interest: Am/F/C/G I recorded a drum track, then a rhythm guitar track, and then a bass track to give me something to play with. The next thing I knew I had "Annie McIntyre". I never got to a B part. It has parts or phases (or at least I hear parts or phases) all supported by the same progression. I found a great video for it. If you watch it, watch it all...wait for it.
