I was inspired by this art

I did use some royalty free sound effects from https://www.zapsplat.com/

In my opinion, this was one of the most distinct and unpredictable entries in the compo. When that guitar comes in, it feels so unnatural to the rest of the accompaniment, but the melody's contour and notes make it so that it *just* fits the first time I hear it. As it continues repeating the same phrase, I start to really get into it and fully embrace it as a catchy and off-putting groove. I especially love the play in the tempo changes towards the ends of the sections. I could have listened to either section for five minutes straight - it has that perfect outdoorsy vibe that I can make connections with from the art.

I think the one thing that really sticks out in this piece is the two-section structure. Both sections are enjoyable in their own right, however, the presence of the two of them and the way they are connected in this piece feels truncated, to some extent. The tempo slowdown towards feels like a natural progression for how each section can develop, but using it as a means to immediately transition into the next section feels a little too abrupt for this piece whose strength is in its vibes. Perhaps there is a way to make the transition between these two sections feel more natural rather than, well, sectional, such that it would put a lot more focus on the atmosphere and mood rather than its structure.

If there were a transition between sections - heck maybe even some psuedo-section in between - as unexpectedly fitting as that guitar, I think it would have been top 3 material for me. I was a big fan of this one and it was one of my personal runner-ups.
