Today’s #FridayFreebie is the first single off of The Taker album, “My Dying Life”.
This is one of my favorites. It was the first song I wrote after two years of barely picking up my guitar, emergency heart surgery that cut through my right intercostal muscles. That cut affected my strumming arm. At that point, I couldn’t strum very fast, so that, along with how I was feeling, created a sludgier sound.
The lyrics are me trying to pull myself out of my post surgery depression.
Jacinda Espinosa helps out with some perfect backing vocals.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
