NEIL PORTER BEGS THE QUESTION..................'WHEN YA GUNNA?"
It's not unusual for a PBGB song to emerge from the barest snippet of an idea.
In the case of When Ya Gunna, the snippet was a groove Pete was fiddling with. The beat became 'Groove in G'. We'd been kicking it around for a cuppla weeks when Brother John Drews dropped in for one of his very welcome visits.
John set hisself up and dropped in on our Groove In G.
Well, as often happens, John's twiddles turned a jam into something worth working with.
We had the recorder on. Neil decided to take the results home.
Next thing we knew Neil had added some scones and cream to the jam......... lyrics and vocals.
We liked it.
'Groove in G' had morphed into 'When Ya Gunna ?'
Hope y'all dig it !
