A more uplifting song for the time. In terms of composition, I wanted to try something in the key of G and work on some of the theory I’ve been learning in terms of chords to use within that key and how to add other chords that will fit within the song.
Things I like: that transition at the end of the chorus into the Em to the D and back up to the G. The move from G to Bm7 to C in the bridge.

Currently calling this track “Yell Away” for obvious reasons. No, that’s not me saying “yellow” a lot, the lyric at the beginning is “Yell oh yell oh yell away.”
This is my take on a punk rock anthem? Maybe? I think the words are appropriately punk, even if the song itself leans a bit folky, like many of them do. This will require some clean-up and revision, but I’m pretty happy with the bones of the thing!
