A followup to my first song of this year's FAWM, Journey of Reverie (https://write.fawm.org/songs/281523). This song represents either the dreamer waking up, or maybe their dreams turn to their real life. I was imaging a third movement after this one, but this one feels too final. Maybe I've written the last two already and I now need to write a first movement. 🤔
Man, I've spent way too long on this. It's been five days of... probably close to six hours each day. And while its growing on me, I really don't think I like it enough for how many hours I've sunk into this. Maybe I just need some time away from it. Maybe I just have too high expectations for my music.
Anyhoo, this song is almost entirely composed. You can find the sheet music for it here (https://static.ajrussell.ca/fawm_2024/regarding_reality.pdf). I changed a few bits and pieces while practicing and recording it, but the structure should be as is. The lead guitar part requires ridiculous stamina to play. I was unable to record each part in a single session. I needed three sessions over two days to rest between. Thank you DAWs for your editing capabilities.
That's enough for now. Enjoy!
