Hip Tip From Billy Lunn

January 22, 2007

But “I Want to Hear What You Have Got to Say” was still an angular, punky song—even if it messed with ‘punk convention’ by starting with just an acoustic guitar and a voice. And, with the acoustic, there’s no lying at all. People can tell if you’re talking sh*t. Ultimately, I decided that it doesn’t matter what guitar you play, as it all comes down to doing whatever fits with what you’re trying to achieve with your song. All that really matters is that you’re getting your message across—that you know precisely what you’re communicating, and that you’re being honest and genuine and true. At the end of the day, you will be tested by your song, and your sincerity shouldn’t come up wanting.”
