whereimgoingtheresnoone said: i get the repetitiveness though. LOVE it on the album w/ all the instrumentation, but w/ it being a somewhat long song to begin with sometimes i feel it can get repetitive if it’s just guitar. i do love the song though esp, like i said, on the album.
Yeah, I think it probably does work well for other people. I just don’t find it meshes well in my head. I do like the album version, and previous solo versions I’ve heard, and its actually quite fun and easy to play…
Still, even though I don’t really like it, I love that she’s pushing herself and evolving and changing songs as she sees fit. To me this seems to indicate that she’s creating for herself and no one else. Awesome way to be.

I feel like that strum pattern would work better with a different song/different lyrics. Musically it could be interesting, but it just felt distracting and repetitive to me in this instance. Maybe accompanied it might sound less so, not sure.
