    Erik Satié's famous Gymnopédie No. 1 is one of my favorite pieces of all time. It's a fairly simple piano song, yet it's heartbreakingly beautiful - the kind of thing I could listen to endlessly on repeat. I recently got a lovely new piano sound, and one of the first things I did was mess around with Gymnopédie's opening chords. After playing around for awhile, I came up with this song.

    Note: This is the dry version (no reverb). I also uploaded a wet version that has a small amount of reverb applied. I like both, but one thing I love about this version is how close and intimate it feels.

    Also note: I'm not a pianist, so go easy on me. :p

    EDIT: The piano sound I'm using is "Felt Piano" by Spitfire. It's available for a mere ~$3 donation at their site here.
