A good song doesn’t need much

I love the simplicity of Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me”. There aren’t too many words, but they say so much. It’s just more proof that a good song stands on its own.

I was sitting with my guitar tonight and thought I’d try it out. I recorded it on my phone, 3 or 4 takes, and a few quick edits in Garageband. No auto tune, no re-doing little ‘flaws’. My hopes were to embody the emotion of this song, not in any perfect way. This was the final, raw take.

Note: I did change the word “men” to “girl” in the first verse. Felt right for me
