COMPOSITION CHALLENGE #21
Time for round #21 of the Fretboard Challenge, courtesy of me (!! - I'm adminning these now, in place of AntiqueG's who's now swamped at work) and @TTony
Every few months there'll be a composition challenge. It revolves around individuals or groups of forum members composing or covering songs based on a set of rules or guidelines laid out for that particular challenge.
No prizes for this challenge. It's just for fun, a spur to creating, sharing, discussing music/recording and learning. Plus a way of testing the water with your creations and getting some feedback.
The theme for this music composition challenge is as follows:
***A New Year: Time to set new trends or update music from the past by putting a new spin on an old style***
Interpret the theme as you wish.
If you're stuck for ideas on how to start, below are some rough indicators on how the theme might be interpreted, but I'm sure others will take a different slant on it.
- Do a guitar based rock style dance track
- Do a heavy metal disco style track
- Do a electro synth blues style track
You could ignore the theme completely but, in general, people give more votes to the entries that relate to the theme. But who cares about winning anyway
Picture: In addition to the music, try to create your own picture that relates to your interpretation of the theme. This isn't mandatory but, as a small incentive, those that provide a picture will be awarded a free point to add to their voting score. Note the picture can be anything from a hand drawn sketch, photo, photo edit or something generated in a graphics package.
