Charles Wolff replied to Brian Lawson's discussion 'Let Go and Know'

Let Go and Know

"Let Go and Know" is a song that I have been working on lately.  It seems to me that it would work as a congregational song, though it may be more of a performance song.   I would greatly appreciate any feedback and/or thoughts on improving the song.  (I am already not a fan of the piano introduction and plan to do make a better intro that transitions into the song more smoothly).You can listen to the song at this link: …See More

Thanks Brian.  I originally wrote and recorded that in the 80's and decided it needed a fresh recording.  I got it done in 2010.  I remember experimenting with micing the amp for the electric off a reflection of a wall.  Not sure it really made any difference but was fun to try.  I actually wrote lyrics for it at one time, but nothing stuck so I kept it an instrumental.
