“Through Rose Colored Glasses”
(Composed and performed by Reynold D. Philipsek 2015 copyright)
For the past several years I have been attempting to expand my solo guitar repertoire. One of the things I wrote for this endeavor was this song “Through Rose Colored Glasses.”
The main line of the piece is slightly reminiscent of Chopin’s riff from his “Barcarolle.”
I also wanted to try and survey all 12 major keys within the piece and still maintain a flowing melody and continuity of line.
In other words, though I had a technical goal in mind I did not want the music to suffer from this goal.
The listener should never be mindful of such efforts and these attempts should never detract from the lyrical aspect of the piece.
