just mix up some major and maj7 chords, arpeggiate them for full effect

well, i wish i could help you more, but as far progressions and stuff goes, sorry... but, ive written a couple short little "love" songs like that... i usually just start by playing something clean, whether its chords or whatever, that has a sound similar to what im feeling. and ill just either play, and try to make it sound good, or look up some scales and try to find something that fits over it well. btw, if you have guitar pro, thats very helpful because it has TONS of scales and modes that you can look at and use right there...
