The full title of this was "Cardboard Castles (Let's Build a Fort!)"

I really like the way this one turned out. I’d set out to do something a little cutesy and innocent. As I was writing the initial melody, though, I started imagining a story about two best friends building a rocket ship out of cardboard and blasting off into imaginary outer space. I know the title references castles, not rockets, but alliteration makes for nicer names. Do you agree?

Initially I really wanted to establish a repeating harmonic progression and just stick with that the entire time (something that I feel works much better for this loop-type work), but once the story was set in my mind I couldn’t help but get a little dramatic. As always, it was a bit of a challenge trying to bring it back home again, but I think it works.

Constructive criticism is much appreciated!

Yup it is awesome I can totally see 2 best friends just chilling together having a cute funny banter to this!

after 1:25 it kinda turns a bit too joyful like a happy xmas song but I love the beginning
