Dreamer | Piano Beat | Moody instruMental Music

This is the end result of a track that I was building for a YouTube video. I started out with some very BASIC notes and gradually built the track from there. This is the final arrangement that I call "Almost Touched" because of a feeling that I get that when I listen to this track. I think about having "Almost Touched" my full potential and how it keeps me motivated to work harder to get a little "Closer".
