Podcast: Arranging “Won’t Get Fooled Again” for Americana/Roots
I played acoustic and electric guitars and sang as a soloist and in a bunch of bands, gigging the small bar circuit throughout the 70s and 80s before moving to Nashville for a while. I never did break into the songwriting business then, and I gave up for many years. After I joined Indiana University Southeast as a writing faculty, I started songwriting, playing and singing again. My music has had a little bit of a renaissance lately, and I’ve enjoyed coming back to one of the loves of my life.
In today’s video podcast, I show you where I’m at so far in the process of arranging the Who’s rock classic “Won’t Get Fooled Again” to a more Americana/Roots style. Check out my progress, as I explain and play through the decisions I’m making for working up this tune to fit my playing and singing style.
