Side Notes

:
• This piece is one of the more serious ones I've written. I guess it's because it came to me during a serious time. Although I was optimistic about the future, I began to realize my carefree days that I had loved as a "youngster" would soon be gone forever. (Don't worry, I got better)

Helpful Hints:
• • • • For best results, stick only to the notes that are written. Remember the sha-boom trick. Honor all the ties. Honor all your commitments.
