Chill HipHops to Weekly and Beat to

This week's composition brought to you by CakeWalk by Bandcamp, a DAW I've used to replace Ableton for the time being. I'm enjoying finding out what I like about different user interfaces.

In regards to the track itself, I heckin' love jazz chords. Grab yourself a chord, make it an 11th, make the 7th major, then slap those notes in whatever way you wish. I did mostly harmonies on the right hand, root and dominant on the left hand. I found out about the "Royal Road" chord progression (IV7 → V7 → IIIm7 → VIm) and also slapped that in. Lofi is super fun to make.

Nice use of that chord progression.  This sure is soothing.

I'll definitely both weekly and beat to this. Maybe even both at the same time.

By the way, that chord progression notation irks me a little, minor chords are represented by lower-case roman numerals.
