seeking original solo for acoustic song. no cliches need apply. electronics will be considered but we do have some reservation. effects are also possible but if its all about the effect that won’t do. acoustic could work but as stated at the front, no cliches please. no worries about experience or eduction, just an original sound that lifts this song up a few notches.

It looked like you.
I just turn the key in the ignition but I’m not responsible for the belts and pistons. That’s what you want to know about, truth is it isn’t me.
Is that what you didn’t think I would believe.
We’ve said too much.
Tell me more.
I don’t want to be taken away by men in white coats.
What men in white coats?
The ones I’ll see if I talk about it, certain things you don’t talk about when you want to preserve it.
