thanks for the feedback -- yeah it is long and sort of repetitive, its really just a long rough version of the song. i'm sure my final produced one will only be 5 minutes.
but it's not just a repeated string of notes over and over -- there are multiple phrases. there is a chorus and a bridge that are both different sections with completely different chord progressions and melodies. it's probably just not that different because its just me and the acoustic guitar.
but that's also sort of intentional. if you listen to the words, i think you'll see the sense in these statements.
if there is a gap between the finite (us) and the infinite, music at least makes one believe not only that there is an infinite, but that he can reach it -- for he can feel it. fire, bliss, and conviction are the plants arising from seeds of music. music is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
