This is a small piece that I wrote to start my day with. I used mostly midi, but that's not too important, I had fun writing it and I still have fun listening to it. Thanks for listening, peace.

With no money to afford private lessons, I began to teach myself to play the piano. Despite not being able read music at the time, I did have the ability to hear music internally, play and remember it - but it was with much practice, perserverance and faith that I was able to do so. My first composition came within the first 2 weeks that I began to play, it was short and simple but it was nonetheless real and mine. It spoke of my belief in something greater than myself and greater than any situation that I had been facing at the time and it was that day that the spirit of NGYD had been realized. I began to share the story of my first composition and til this day, I have continued to musically share every other significant experience of my life. If nothing else, the music is sincere and attempts to be nothing else.

I really enjoyed Morning Breath. It's well-balanced and unique. It kept my interest and all of the changes felt natural, sincere. Thanks for posting it!
