This was really my first attempt at making music on a computer like this.

I'm a fan of bass guitars, so I added a slapping bass throughout all the song.

My motivation for the song was just something to relax to. It gave me the feeling of just wishing to be taken for a ride or adventure of some kind. I tried to make everything not only tie well, but almost tell a story from the beginning to the very end.

I hope you enjoy! If you need music for a flash submission or anything of the sort, don't be afraid to get in contact with me. I'd love working with you!

And it's only your first submission?

I'll be short: I love this song, but I think it'll be better with a bit more basses, and maybe a sing on this song could be nice. Continue like that!

I will keep those comments in mind when I make my future submissions. I would actually love to add vocals to my songs. Even though I'm a choir singer, I don't really want to risk ruining my music with a voice however.

And the slapping you heard is a bass. I can add more under toned bass to future submissions. Thanks for that suggestion!

This... this is beautiful!

My friend, I never thought simplicity could come in such a wonderful form in terms of musical prowess, yet here I sit stunned before you, unbelieving of what you've managed to create for your VERY FIRST SUBMISSION. This, if nothing else, is surely a sign of hope that Newgrounds still has a steady flow of viable Audio Portal regulars coming in to this very day.

Perhaps what surprised me most about this submission was the way it cleverly disguised what seemed to be a bad-quality recording of guitar-playing, then suddenly... "exploded"... into a whole nature of different rhythms and strings. I honestly did not see this coming, and trust me, it was a definitely enjoyable experience. Your composition remained consistent and fluid throughout the piece, with no stray sections or notes to ruin the listening experience. Are you SURE you have never done this before?

I must also remark on the influence of Maplestory that exists here, particularly at 1:45, but do not fear, for this was incorporated just as well and with open arms awaiting it.

Shortly put, my friend, you have created a gradual piece that has done everything to impress me, as well as even cause me to feel RELAXED. This was by far the most surprising first entry I have ever heard from a Newgrounds user, and if it continues this way, believe that I WILL be coming back for more! Congratulations!

haha alright, thank you very much. The beginning transition is one of my favorite parts. I did that so that people might listen to it, maybe be a bit drawn away at first to the point of almost leaving. Then WHAM they're hit with something they just cannot move away from.

Thanks for the review!
