Fisherman's Horizon

This is a direct digital recording of me playing "Fisherman's Horizon" off the Final Fantasy VIII Piano Collections songbook. I don't know why I was so nervous as there's really nothing riding on me playing this, but I made a whole bunch of mistakes that I didn't do a good job of covering up. Also, right after the part where the music gets soft and quiet, the piece becomes too complex for me to memorize, so I'm going to have to figure out how to jam it into my mind (...someday). In the meantime, I just threw caution to the wind and regurgitated a few parts so the song would be complete.

Why did I choose this particular piece? Because it's an awesome melody and I don't have the chops to play any of the higher-tempo pieces. (I barely have the chops to play this one; in fact I think it's downright fugly.) Also, my fingers began to get really tired after playing it multiple times, trying to get it without errors. The irony of it is, it's the first one that probably had the least errors as I wasn't tired and overthinking it yet!
