Song of the Week: November 30 – “Take That”

December 1, 2013 admin 0 Comments

I decided a couple of weeks ago to embark on a new little adventure. I’ve set a personal goal to write and record one new song every week, and post it on my blog. This is the third offering in the series. So far, so good.

Some back story on this particular tune: I wrote the main chords and melody about 18 years ago, jamming in a rehearsal space that I had with a band I played with in Athens called Volare. I never played it with the band; in fact, I’m not so sure the guys ever even heard it. Truth is I never finished writing it. I’d only gotten two sections, represented in this piece by the first 0:29 seconds of the song, and then the descending chord sequence and melody starting at 0:43.

For this week’s project, I thought I’d dust off those old melodies and flesh it out a little bit. While I have dozens of unfinished projects lying around on my harddrive, I’ve set about this song-of-the-week adventure with the mind to write completely new material. Though this tune is not brand new in strictest sense, I feel it meets the criteria.

I hope you enjoy it!
