You lack the tavern experience. One can only make good tavern music with a belly full of mead.
Unfortunately, I don't drink, but if I did, that would probably be either immensely helpful, or would produce some crazy garbage.
You could be a rock star since all rockstars drink of course.
Now I'm imagining a tavern with heavy metal blaring in the background.
Maybe listen to some playlists for inspiration? Youtube has playlists that are usually an 1-2hrs long that people put together of songs from various games. One such you can find is tavern music. Its usually from games like the witcher series, or elder scrolls but its some nice examples back to back.
It's funny you say that, 'cause I'm listening to an RPG tavern music playlist right now.
Having to make a harmonic variation in a peaceful music can look deceivingly easy, but it'll get easier the more you work on it.
@HexMozart88 Maybe I read your mind!? Sounds like you got the right idea though to get back on track (Some music related puns there for you!)
