And congratulations to Avai.i for being my 1000th follower :D.

This piece, as you may notice, has some very interesting aspects.

1. The main melody is slightly influenced by Hans Zimmer, particularly his Kung Fu Panda soundtrack.

2. It is actually very fun to play, compared to my (our) other piano solos.

3. It's also heavily influenced by Jarrod Radnich by the way he arranges songs.

We wrote the rough draft in about 4 hours. It was really fun! Be sure to check out our first collaboration Best & Always (check it out here: https://musescore.com/barbossathepianist/best-and-always-piano-solo). We were both still pretty much beginners at composing at the time we wrote this, so please just enjoy it and don't worry about criticizing!! (Although that is welcome lol).

This is not the last you'll hear of this song, however!!! An amazing friend, Kelby Starbuck, is already at work orchestrating it!!! Be sure to follow him and check out his awesome scores!!

I've known 1piano for several years now, in real life, and we seem to naturally be able to write songs together fairly smoothly. He has the greatest ideas, most of which I would never think of on my own. We both are huge fans of Jarrod Radnich's piano solo arrangements, so you can see quit a few triplet arpeggios in the right hand haha. Sometimes he shows or tells me something, and I'm like "what??" then I put it onto MuseScore with the rest of the song and I'm like "What the!! That's amazing!!!! How did you even think of that!!!"
We fit together very well in writing music, and I'm very happy about that because most people I've tried to write with, nothing worked. Thanks man!!

Unbelievable. Let me just say it, THANK YOU MUSESCORE!!! (that includes everybody in the community, and also all of the MuseScore Staff)

You don't know how much this program means to me. I've been using it for a little over 2 years now, and I've loved it ever since!! Thank you Thomas, Nicholas, Werner, Ximrich, and all the other MuseScore staff members that I don't know the names of :D.

On behalf of all of MuseScore, to the MuseScore staff, we give you a great big THANK YOU and, keep going!!! I assume we're all looking forward to MuseScore 3.0, so looking forward to that!!

And, 1piano and I will try to write more songs in the near future, so get ready! This is just the beginning!!!

Thank you again,
