5:19 (Worktape)

So, this is where it all started. A slow, moody ballad. This is the work tape from right after the song had been written with my friend and co-writer Chad Cates. You can tell the melody and chords are essentially the same, but the way I played the chords was dramatically different- not to mention the tempo! (this is at 70bpm). Another major difference is the bridge melody, this was the original attempt.
