I've always wanted to put some improvisations on NG, so here's the first of many!

I love improvising, because it's a way to express how you feel in that exact moment.

I really like the soothing guitar at the beginning. The little flourishes (like at :27) are really impressive, and the flow is rather smooth. The very ending felt a tad rushed (just the final chord, really), but the biggest problem with the structuring imo is that there wasn’t enough of it. I feel like with solo instrument tracks, it’s really important to create variety along parameters like dynamics, energy levels, pacing, etc., because it’s inherently hard to create variety with the sound design. So, I guess that’s all to say that the composition could’ve been a tad more dynamic here along some of those other parameters. The recording quality is great, but there are a couple of small moments where you seem to hit the strings unintentionally (notably :59). The melodic content here is really nice, though, and you nailed the relaxed and somewhat wistful mood here. I still think the composition could be fleshed out a little more, but it’s good to hear a raw and organic submission like this. Keep at it, Thomastique! :)

Thank you! I will definitely keep all of this in mind for the future, great feedback!

A much needed moment of calming beauty. More please. :)
