So any info about this tune? I like the first part, but I’m not sure about the second part… Also, I don’t think this is in A, the G#’s definitely don’t fit.

C: metastotle ~ ? 😏

Here’s hoping this isn’t another ‘dump and leave’, that you’re not that embarrassed by it you can’t make some comment of claim of ownership?


Hello. The key’s definitely not A. And I didn’t realize it was customary to comment my own tunes. I don’t even know any of you to feel embarrassed, assuming of course there were anything to be embarrassed about. Cheers.

C: metastotle ~ !

No longer an orphan…

What about the title? Is there a story behind the tune?
