What I Like About It

  1. The instrument is beautiful. I’ve used it before and I’ll probably use it again.
  2. The harmony is D minor Rhythm Changes. It lets me get creative with dissonance and consonance. Since all the notes are in one scale (except the C# in A7), it’s easy to resolve chords in expected and unexpected ways.
  3. I managed to process most of the distortion out.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. We keep gravitating toward Bb, for some reason. Everywhere I turned, I was on a Bb chord.
  2. The final chord fades well, but there’s a cut off that’s noticeable.
  3. I’d really like to have a greater note diversity in the future — this one is entirely in the bass clef, hovering around middle C and lower.

Note: These are rough drafts. Constructive criticism is welcomed, of course.
