The music challenge made me think of this song, which I wrote accidentally in 5/4.

I just found a picking pattern that I liked, and there it was. I wrote it literally immediately after reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.

Interestingly, it seems that his recent brush with death has inspired him to complete the fourth part of the book. I'm looking forward to reading it a lot. Maybe there will be another song in it for me :)

You made the 5/4 flow very naturally. Pretty vocals, too.

I listened to this deliberately the other day and was impressed. Went through and listened to your other tracks here. Then again today I was listening to the RSS on the front page and Jonathan just reached out of my speakers and grabbed me by the ears (in the tenderest way, of course). A great song. Thank you!
