Baby's first BotB! YEE HAW!
I feel like I had to unlearn a lot of the habits I've acquired from working on post-production-heavy Marshall Art songs. It was fun to focus in and try to nail everything in the FTM. Enjoy!

Modus: that's exactly the intent! I never really wrote specific lyrics for the whole song, but I had a concept / narrative in mind and worked specific phrases into the rhythm.

I love doing that kind of thing with compositions. Well done on a good song!

This is definitely one the best realized Western feel FTM's I've heard so far (about 55% through voting). Really nice job on this! Great atmosphere :D The 2:15 mark hit me right in the feels <3

Lacking on Ranching a bit, other than that it's perfect! Tells a great story.

This one's a keeper. The slurred arpeggios feel like I'm riding a tired horse.
