I can’t believe another month is gone this year. I’ve written a song every day for five months now and pretty much recorded them the same day. I never thought I couldn’t do it but I’ve also been amazed at my sheer will to do it. Honestly, most of the time I’m excited because it’s something new to listen to. I guess that’s my number one suggestion to young musicians. Be a fan of your own music, it makes things a little easier when things get tough.
I dug the bones of this song out of my unreleased archives and rewrote several parts of it. Including the guitar interludes and the verses. “What It Gonna Take” is kind of a rockin’ break up song. I wrote the first version of this song in Amsterdam in 2005. This song features Mike Lowdermilk on bass guitar and Dave Brockway on drums.
