Neon River (improvisation)


Author Comments

I found a chord progression I like and decided to hit record and improvise on it. This is totally unmixed, unmastered, unpolished. There are definitely some sour notes in there. I like it though, so I'm going to release it anyway.

I've come to the realization that I struggle with anxiety and have become kind of musically crippled as a result. I've become so worried about writing "good" music that I stopped writing altogether. To help overcome this, I'm going through my old hard drives to release all of the stuff I thought was not good enough to release. I'm just going to upload this stuff even if it isn't polished. Better that than nothing at all, right?

Yeah lovely.

Or what you could do instead of uploading it, is just revamp it.

Like imagine if strings came in and a few other instruments, you know? This is a great song.

I think you're being too hard on yourself, but I think all artists go through something like that at one time or another. The nice thing about seeing the flaws in something is that it means we're humble enough to know we can improve. But if it overwhelms us, then one can end up stuck. I'm glad that you're trying to work through it, and sharing your stuff in the process.

I thought this piece was lovely, good for a peaceful fantasy setting perhaps. I hope to hear more from you.
