PLAYLIST TOOLS

These are rough demos which I have recorded. Some of these are polished demos which I have yet to finish, while some show you how far the demo has come to its finished state.

美好 is a song I wrote back in June on the guitar. It happened while I was playing around with chords on the guitar, and happen to chance upon the simple and catch chords for the introduction, which then became the base of the song. I drew inspiration on one of the popular jingles for the iPod advertisements.

It was considered an ambition attempt because it was my first song written from the guitar. I also wanted to do a proper entire guitar arrangement, but unfortunately my guitar playing skills weren't good enough for the recording studio, so I settled for this song to be a demo instead. I'll come back to it and do a proper guitar arrangement when I'm ready.

The song happened sometime around the Sichuan Earthquake, and I wanted to write a hope song. A song that would warm the heart in cold times. The song sings about simple happiness of love, of world peace, anti-violence, about cherishing everything around us because simply put, it is sometimes during the worst times that we see the simple happiness that exists around us. Life is fragile, be happy.

Hope you enjoy this number.
