Writing a good song is just the beginning; I’ve learned that I need to keep on until I get a great version of it in the studio..it’s all about the heart, the vibe, and the emotion!
It’s really interesting to compare “takes” of a good song. Some versions just don’t do anything! Then all of a sudden the magic is present when while listening back through another pass at the song, and everyone feels it.
It really is more than just a good song that touches others, and gives them goosebumps, or causes their heart to open up; simply put it’s that undefinable ingredient that is so great when it gets captured in the music:)
It’s something you don’t really have any control over. You just do your best at trying to express it, and it either comes through , or it doesn’t!
Being able to put together a “great” song becomes a true cause for celebration and humble gratitude.
