So I continued to work

on the song I shared yesterday, and, as you can see from the overview screenshot above, it grew in length quite a bit, haha. I also added two new tracks, a harp from Native Instruments that has a lute-esque sort of sound, as there isn't much sustain like an actual harp, and some staccato strings from Spitfire Audio. There are also a few points where I chopped off the last chord of a four bar section, so we have 3 bars, and then resolve back to our tonic, and repeat the section. It gives those resolves a more unique feeling, so it's not identical every time around.

Listen to The Order of the Silver Shield (Ver. 2) here.

Track 8 is the harp,

which plays a little melody line (in Brown), pictured below. It also is used with Track 9 over the new section (Pink in Track 1), which I guess is now the break. Track 9 provides some chords over the break, and then just arpeggiates the main chords over the main section afterwards. There is one more change I need to make, which is adding a cymbal wash/swell to two different points, as it doesn't feel like things build up enough, particularly into the break. So I'll do that tonight, and share the completed version tomorrow!
