I remember once being in western North Carolina, way up in a cabin my brother-in-law rented for our family, sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair and drinking coffee as the sun rose above the peaks in the distance.  It was really peaceful, and a memory I still cherish.  I was joined by one of my sisters and we just sat there, not speaking, just enjoying the beauty God gave us that morning.  I tried to capture that feeling in this tune.  Please take a listen and let me know what y'all think.  I'm almost at the point where I would make a recording, but I need a bit more practice on this one.  Enjoy!

It's beautiful, suits the intended mood very well. For some reason, it also reminded me of 'Concerning Hobbits' from the Lord of the Rings soundtrack.

Aloha Serotonin,

It was most certainly not my intention to copy another tune - I'll have to check out "Concerning Hobbits" and adjust my tune, if need be.  Thanks for the head's up.  I'm glad that you liked it, however.  I'm not very skilled, but am trying to incorporate what I can play in my tunes.

EDIT: I'm not good with song names (remembering the name of a specific tune, that is), but I listened to "Concerning Hobbits" on YouTube and there's no danger of my copying it.  Actually, the fact that one of my tunes was actually compared to that tune makes me pretty happy.  My tunes aren't that complex, so thank you for the compliment!

"Concerning Hobbits" is actually one of my favorites songs, albeit I forgot the namefacepalm I would hope to be able to write something that musically complex in the future.
