GUEST,Kristine Artistic license to change old tune? (26) RE: Artistic license to change old tune? 15 Apr 03

The song I'm referring to is rather old and somewhat obscure. I learned it years ago, and have sung it while doing the dishes over the years. Then I decided to record the song. When I went back to the original version I discovered that quite by accident I had changed the tune a wee bit. The man I was working with said that he preferred the new version (mine). It has some minor chords where there used to be major chords, creating a bit more of a haunting sound. Also, the tune is now a little more simple which lends itself to a certain rhythm. I love the original version as well, but it doesn't seem to work with the chords I've arranged. I'm recording a cd which should be coming out in August sometime. I will definately make a note of the change on the cd. Thank you for all your comments and licensing.
