My entry is coming along. It's one of those songs that I was pretty excited about at the outset. But the more I hear it, the less I like it. I still haven't decided between a drum loop or no drums.

1. If I showed up with superb drumming, you might get suspicious. IF I had a drum set I'd use it though.
2. What if we are secretly girls?
Don't pay any attention to me...I'm just typing words during lunch so I feel like I'm 'enjoying' my time away from work.

I took it to mean a buildup in intensity and volume later in the song, like a peak. You could do that at the start of a song also, but I am not sure a simple fade in would really be in that spirit. But, technically I guess a fade in seems like it would qualify. I am not one of the judges though, so what I think is not really what counts.bck15 wrote:A quick question about the challenge.

But if that's all you've got, and the song itself is a good song, at least you met the challenge and won't be arbitrarily bounced for that.

Doing something interesting with it is the point of the challenge in my opinion, ESPECIALLY if it wasn't what the judges intended. There is no right or wrong answer. Stimulate them. Surprise them. Shock them.
