Acoustic arrangement Calvin Harris' "Feel So Close"
I have about 10 songs that I'm looking to record, but this one was the most recent one I've been working on, and is just one of those songs that got priority over the others. Not to mention, as a fairly simple piece, I would have expected a fingerstyle and/or chord-melody arrangement for guitar to be on YouTube already, and there was none to be found as of the time this was uploaded (I try to avoid songs that have already been done, unless I feel they were of poor quality or a different version than that which I intend to record)
The arrangement itself is fairly simple, the chorus (or verse?) seems to be the only chord-melody part to the whole piece, whereas the break in between is just usually outlining the upper two notes of the chords. Felt the song was a little redundant/repetitive without vocals or full instrumentation, so I decided to end on the bridge as it seemed to be a natural occuring cadence, if not a stronger cadence that the actual ending if played with intention to end there.
