This is a little thing I came up with this morning. The resonator riff is a remnant of when I used Ryan’s guitar.I recorded a bunch of mini-ideas that I could experiment with later on. So 4 months later, I’m getting the feel of a hip-hop beat with paperbag-like drums.

If one were to analyze (over-analyze?) this piece, these would be my thoughts (but I didn’t go into this piece wanting to create this idea, this is kind of me attempting to analyze my work as if I’ve never heard it before, post-production):
The guitar riff could be seen as our life- we start out with no memory or experiences, become mature and (some drums enter) create memories and experiences. As we progress in life, it does get more complicated (adding the second group of drums), and though we are still ourselves (the guitar riff unchanging throughout), the overall total melody is different. As we grow older and older, aspects of life might not be as complicated for we can sort out and discern experiences better, but remnants of our past experiences stay with us (back to the simplified drum beat with reverb). Then, when our life is over (the guitar stops), our experiences and memories live on after us with those who we’ve had these experiences with.
