To help create the emotion in the song, most of the chords (Cm,Dm,Gm) are minor. Since the song tells the story of a soldier’s fears and apprehension, we play minor chords to help the listener feel what the soldier must have felt. The song, Letter To My Molly, was written and performed in January, 2015 by Doc Marshall. We hope you enjoy it!
