So, a while ago, I posted Only The Beginning. It's very different from the stuff I usually do, and it was a challenge for myself to make something so far out of my comfort zone... but... I never finished it. It had a half assed ending where there should have been more.
So... since I'm finally done my overtime at work, I decided to sit down and revisit it. Not only did I revamp an early section, I extended the song as a whole as well as made a few minor tweaks in other areas.
Behold, the result.. for better or worse (I'm hoping for better):
Only The Beginning (Extended)
Speaking of endings... I tried something new with the ending... Screw cliché chords and fade outs... I opted to glitch it to hell... Yes... That was intentional.
And as you may notice, the song never really revisits previous themes once it moves on. Why you ask? Because I think it's stupid that songs should be expected to always come back to a single theme, and I like to keep it moving along, it tells a more interesting story, and it makes the song more varied. Not that I'll never do the Verse, chorus, verse, bridge thing again... Just sometimes I like to just do a song without caring about the structure and how it should be.
