I was just "tickling" the virtual ivories tonight and came across a little melody and thought, "Wow...this is quite lovely..." only to realize a moment later that it is the piano/opening theme for Final Fantasy X - one of my all time favorite Uematsu pieces. So I figured out the chord progression and...well...gosh I really wish I had written that.
Any of you ever experienced similar moments? Now I sit here in my studio wondering if I shall ever write anything so simple and graceful. I need a big stamp on my forehead that says, "Its the melody, stupid!"
