In my continuing attempts to write really awesome solos, this song features a really long acoustic guitar solo. This is one of my favorite songs, and probably my favorite solo.

GOD I love that chord progression. I don't recall using it before. It's so much fun. The only disadvantage is that the final E chord - it sounds great and surprising a few times and you can play off that with the melody, but there's only so many times you can be surprised by it so it starts to sound silly or redundant.

P.S. Maybe the reason I included that random outro is to prove that anyone can write a beautiful melody with I-IV-V. Listen to that pretty piano melody! Isn't it so pretty? Yes. Yes it is.

P.P.S. I always double-guess myself at the submission page. Should that actually be a piano? Is it too quiet? DOES THIS WHOLE SONG SUCK? I already rewrote the solo once since opening up this page. Oh well too late now.

0:13 YOU MAKE ME JELLY CUZ OF YOUR MELODY SKILLZ XD
I recently read your review and yes i did agree to it. I just don't know how one makes leads.

Btw really good song here. Has a breakbeat feel to it ^_^


johnfn responds:

Thanks man :)

About leads. I noticed in your response to my review on your latest song (lol NG makes it hard to continue conversations) that you mentioned that you don't know music theory so you can't write good leads. I don't think music theory is as important as you think. I know a fair bit of music theory, but pretty much never use it in my songs. I just put down notes that I think are right.

What *is* important is that I usually go through a lot of iterations of melodies. The first melody that seems so simple actually came in the middle of writing that really long solo - I tore it out later. That really long solo wasn't even my first really long solo (I threw out some earlier ones). When I wrote the solo, I 'sketched it out' first to see the whole idea through, then went back and slowly refined it.

I feel like I got kind of lucky here, a lot of things worked really nicely together. You should hear my latest song, it's total crap. xD

The chord progression in this is just as awesome as you say it is. Favorited song and artist.


johnfn responds:

Thanks man. I think you are the first person to ever favorite me as a music writer, which is really embarrassing and I probably shouldn't be admitting it.. oops.

EDIT: SECOND PERSON!
