I just want to say THANK YOU to EVERYONE that's supported me ...you guys are amazing :D
Thanks to you guys, I've gained confidence in composition that I never would have before...and it's motivated me to push myself to improve. I'm SO excited to have reached 300!!!
Now, onto why this description is so cheesy. Other than having reached 300, yesterday marked the day I had spent exactly one year on musescore. Like daaaaang, time's passed so quickly...
HUGE shout out to all the people that have encouraged me, supported me, been amazing friends, and taken the time to look at, comment on, and favourite my works. You guys made my year :DDD
Also thank you Laughingintherain for being follower #300!!!
Now, about the piece. It's definitely another huge risk I decided to take. I've noticed I tend to use really simple chords over and over again, and thinking about what chords to use wasn't helping much. So this time, I tried NOT to think about chords or theory or anything (I stopped learning theory 6 months ago, so I can't count on that to spoon feed me new chords). I just let my creativity run its own course. To be honest I can't even identify all the chords in here, and I'm pretty sure I broke at least 5 theory rules...if you see them feel free to point them out :P So the not thinking about theory thing has resulted in a kinda weird structure, but overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :D

And I know he followed me after 300, but he still deserves a HUGE shoutout for being so supportive and creating such a fantastic arrangement of my piece :D
Also be sure to check out BmMusic's fantastic orchestral arrangement of this piece as well! I was very pleased at how he pulled it off.https://musescore.com/bmmusic/shine-through
