Sneak Peek Friday- Next Chapter

The Video Game Soundtrack to my life.  🙂

Next Chapter was written to be the 2nd track in succession to a song that actually didn’t make it to the final list of songs (maybe next album…?).  This song delves into a lot of different genres that I really like, including Trap, Electronica, World, Jazz, Dubstep, and much more.  As I’ve gotten a little more proficient on guitar and keys, I incorporated a little more solid chord changes in this piece.  Next Chapter also represents a new freedom I have learned very recently.  I don’t have to just ‘fit the bill’ per say, I can make songs the way I hear them in my mind and not have to be restrained to having a ‘jazz’ or ‘smooth’ sound.  I can make these songs exactly the way I want, and not hold back.  I guess another good name for this song would have been ‘Stepping Stones.’  I have 3 favorite parts to this song- first of all, the bass line- I just can’t get enough of it, haha!  Second, the drop.  Because of my love for Dubstep (yeah I went through that phase, and I’m still not totally over it lol), I’ve always wanted to make a successful drop in a song.  I haven’t had much success with it.  But I really like this one, possibly because I didn’t feel the pressure of having to make some kind of epic ‘WUB-WUB’ bass line to launch into after the build-up.  Third, the final push at the very end.  It’s loud, it’s in your face, and it’s awesome when everything finally just goes all out.  It’s like that final level of a video game you’ve been trying to beat for what seems like forever.  So I guess, think of this song as also the ‘video game’ backing track to my life, haha.  Keep moving, and keep leveling up!  🙂
