To share or not to share

I very much enjoyed last night's meeting of the Southwest Virginia Songwriters Association (SVSA). As always, I came away with several really useful suggestions for improving the song I offered during the critique session.

I also really appreciated comments from Laurie and Aspen about how to make our group more useful and accessible.

Along those lines, when we talked about "sharing" a song versus offering one for critique, I mentioned that I no longer play new songs of mine for my wife unless I want her comments (as opposed to her approval). This morning on NPR, I learned that singer-songwriter Edie Brickell does exactly the same thing. This isn't all that remarkable until you realize that Edie is married to Paul Simon.
