Song for Sunday No. 4: What it Takes
This week's #songforsunday is "What it Takes," a song I started writing roughly 15 years ago. I finished it more recently, and it's interesting to see how this went from being a first-person song to a second-person song. Something about a change in perspective over those 15 years just made that alteration feel right.
It's also worth noting that the entire song is made of a single four-chord progression. I've always been a fan of one-progression songs. Something about the way they manage to evolve even within those rigid boundaries always interested me. I hope I've achieved some of that here, but you'll have to let me know what you think.
