Alright guys you know the drill (no thanks to iamHoustonian!), the name of the game this week is "hope"

That single moment of clarity when you know things will get better. Feel free to approach this anyway you like,be it from the very first note or from the depths of despair.

I will also accept any inspirational submissions as I think it goes hand in hand with hope.

Good luck!

I was thinking about maybe starting an account on soundcloud or some other drop-box site.
Does anybody know one that is easy and doesn't have any weird terms and conditions that could potentially be a hassle?

Edit: scratch that. I just made an account on Soundcloud :)

Got an okay recording done with not many noise interuptions. It's technically a ruff draft of a song I am writing. I feel like I rushed it at times. I usually play it a bit slower and more flow.
Fingerstyle isn't exactly my forte but I like to think I'm getting better haha.

The finished product might be a minute or so longer and obviously I'd want it to be flawlessly played haha

Quick question for BigHead. When you ask for at least 1 instrument, do you mean a live "real" instrument? like dwelling of duels

It could be farts for all I care as long as it produces notes, although I personally prefer actual instruments be them midi or live. :)

Are you familiar with DwellingofDuels.net?
If not, they are a videogame cover/arrangement contest site. I've never participated but I know what their requirements for their entries are and they request the person submiting a song to have played at least 1 "real" instrument themselves live.

I don't frequent these tune contests very often but I've never seen at least 1 instrument (that can be heard by me) in the conditions. When I saw it I wasn't sure if you were trying for a DoD style contest.
Just curious haha

https://soundcloud.com/hslesperance/finding-my-way

It's a bit different from my usual stuff. Only one instrument, with simple, repeating melodies. There is some struggle during the middle part, but the end gets more hopeful.

Since I'm not too happy with that one, take a listen to a better song I just finished at the same time.

Haha, Brody apparently has that magically ability to cause heel clicking in parks.. frightening!

Not one submission but 2? Well played sir, I must say that "finding my way" would have been a perfect submission for contest #45 not only this one although I really like both!


In regards to the due date, I personally don't like to rush things and like breaks between writing or I burn out. But not everyone is me so if there are no other submissions by Sept 12th (or any asking for extensions) I will post results Friday of that week.

I also have to say more time for a contest is not bad. I'm not happy with my new hope-attempt. So if I can finish it until the 12. September, I will upload it. If not, feel free to make an end for this and use my posted song as hope entry.
Maybe the next Contest is then "Heel clicking in the park"? :D

Well, here goes my entry. I think it came out quite alright, despite being a rough mock-up (there are some noticeable errors -- I got lazy, alright!). It's not done, though (redundant statement lol) :P Well, it is for now. I feel like I can do more with it but I just don't know what yet. My ears need a break from it for a few days XD
