Yes, haha, I wish I were a better guitar player! I took it up just to write songs so I never learned much outside of chords, but I know exactly what you mean. In "Temporary" the guitar plays a melody under the vocals during the verse and I think that adds some spice. But in most of the songs it's just strumming and singing. Arrangement is definitely a big part of songwriting, thank you for the observation, I will certainly be keeping this in mind as I continue writing. Having guitar flair is also good because it can inform the vocal melody, which is something I struggle with a lot.
