Bonfire Heart

James Blunt has a certain stigma attached to him as a bit of a cheesemeister. People hate, and I mean hate, Beautiful, I don't mind it but that "my life is brilliant" line gets on my nerves a bit. But he's actually a decent funny guy and his songs aren't that bad (Did you hear that, that was the sound of my credibility vanishing). 1973 is a great tune (no its totally gone). Just watch him on Never Mind The Buzzcocks he's all right. So what he sounds posh. You can't blame some one for where they were born. He's actually down to earth and most important, a good measure of anyone is if they can laugh at themselves and he can.

I learnt Bonfire Heart cos its easy its C, Em, F, Am C, G (although I capo the second fret cos it suits me better) and its current and its good for busking. I really like the chorus structure, I wish I had come up with it.

I stand by what I say If you think I have no credibility now then read back about the other stuff I like and read on in the future. But to be honest I can live with it. Its just your opinion, as this is mine. I respect it. Don't be afraid to like what you like, be yourself don't hide parts of yourself away for fear of what other people will think.

...But just let me make this clear there will be NO Justin Bieber posts

Just one note - I'm not happy with the sound of the guitar on this. I thought I had it sorted but not there yet. I worry it might be un-sortable without another microphone and a better pick-up in the guitar.
