Hey Joe, sorry I missed your comment! Thanks for writing. And thanks for taking the time to find & listen to that original song!
Let's compare notes brother, as soon as possible. Our band & church loved this song last year!
As for the structure, it's exactly the same. You can see that quickly by looking at the original's length (3:53) & looking at my loop's length (3:55). Extra measures or repeated/dropped sections would've changed that.
I just double checked with praisecharts.com & the free lead sheet from worshiptogether.com & I can't see any difference. I've also got a self-made chart I'd be happy to share with you (where should I send it?) & maybe you can tell me if you're still hearing it the same.
Without specific/clear input the only thing I can GUESS you might be hearing different is the passing note on beat 5, last measure of the Bridge-- that's still the same chord, just arpeggiated & colored the same as the Intro & Turn. So that might not've been your preference, but it's not wrong either.
Hey, it's me again. After a more thorough listen to your track, I realized that I was mistaken regarding my previous comment(s) that implied that the song chords were wrong or that the song form was off from the original. The F#/A# in the Bridge section still sounds funky to me, but it works. I purchased the loop and introduced the song to our congregation this past Sunday, and it was well received. Thanks again for being open to have an honest discussion about with me, as I realize your artistic expressions are quite personal. Keep on putting out the good stuff, man!
