SMC April challenge (Two Breaks)
« on: April 05, 2016, 12:02:31 PM »
This will be a tune or song with a set tempo of 120bpm and in 4/4 time. The structure can be anything but the final full track must contain at least two silent breaks of one bar. You can have any length now that we can upload to Soundcloud.
It can be something from your own archives that you always wanted to finish or even a track you already have so long as it's not been in any of our challenges before.
Entries must be iun by midnight (your time) on 30th April which is a Saturday leaving Sunday and Monday for voting.
The usual challenge rules apply from http://www.gmhcafe.ca/gforums/index.php?topic=810.0

Well! I told I was going to be quick. I won't be around except maybe on a tablet after Saturday for three weeks so I've pulled out all my stops and uploaded this one.

Working on something completely different at the moment.
Enjoyed Dave's tune; evoke a real mood with a scene playing out in my head though, very cool.

Good luck!

STOP THE PRESS!!!


Hoping I may be able to do something on Saturday.  Can't remember the deadline, but if you can wait for me, I hopefully am in.


I had an idea on a train journey today, just need to convert it, and will be at home on Saturday for a change.

Sorry Way2lon, but I'm out.


We've had unexpected visitors today, so haven't been able to get to the guitars.

I'm just gonna wait until there are two more entries or you all say this one is defunct. Take your time composing and let's have some music to listen to again please.

I think we'll push this one over into May. Come on guys, I'm sure you can find time for something or is it inspiration that's missing?

Could be that time-demands are encroaching; happens every year to me at this time anyway in a big way.  (That, plus when I do pick up a guitar it's to work on something education-wise.)  You can push the challenge period if you want or modify the parameters.

Well! I never expected this. I already ran the challenge over a month extra and no one bothered to even acknowledge except Wes (thanks Wes).
Now I'm up for suggestions. Shall I extend another month through June or just cancel it altogether?
I know Glenn is busy with home things and is not on computer for a while but there are others here who have entered challenges before.
Would you like another challenge topic. Does anyone have one they want to submit?

Actually working on something that fulfills the 'break' part of the challenge; after all, a bar isn't that long. However, the tempo is much faster than 120 so I'll have to put it in the can for a later time when I get to recording it. (The creative hemisphere of my brain is a brick; I just enjoy playing & mixing.) If no other responses you might want to put the challenge on hold; can't speak for everyone but I've gotten incredibly busy the last few weeks. It's no slight on your challenge; wish I could see the slower beat & a rapid counterpoint on top of it like you do.

Aside from that am working on a technique (with above song's hook) that hearkens back to Mr. Duane Eddy. Just need to coordinate a couple old fingers to do what I want them to, when I want them to do it, LOL . There are a couple ways to 'fake it' with same result but am trying to do it right.
