I am 23 years old, and I'm currently studying composition at Vancouver Community College. I play guitar in the band girlsnails, and I have a solo project called A Portrait Worth Painting. For my arrangement of Polska från Norrbotten I used two-handed tapping to play the melody as well as provide extra harmonic content through chords and harmonies. I transposed the song to E because I mostly play in Open E, and I thought it sounded pretty nice a step higher. I took some liberties with the time signatures, and some of the rhythms, but I believe it stays fairly true to the original. Thank you for organizing this competition and listening to my entry! I wish all of the other entrants the best of luck.
