Hey everybody, happy New Year!! Let's start the new year with a new songwriting challenge!

A few ideas:
-Another 'inspirational input' challenge
-Another 'write an extremely positive song' challenge
-A 'write a song in a specific style' challenge
...

Let's collect ideas in this thread, so we can choose what the new challenge will be!

Cheers, Love and Peace,

Mar T.

What about a song about a named individual (real or fictional) .. could be an inspirational character, a hero, a scoundrel, possibly from folklore, history, politics, family, sport. Only requirement is the the song title is this individual’s name.

Good ideas - @DanJames:  An inspirational Character challenge.
And @Dutchbeat   - a song about songwriting, or about music - that could be an interesting angle too
My 10 cents would be a song challenge  about a favorite painting or painter.
cheers
Dick

i like all these ideas
perhaps we can have a short snap poll to decide what we are going to do @Mar T.  ?

oh...hang on, @Ricita  :blackgrin: PM-ed a suggestion for what the new songwriting challenge could be....

 ??? ::)....after googletranslating his mail from Portugese  to English it says something like this:

"it could be a....just play and press record..."" kind of challenge ?

"so your first track and song, needs to be build or based on a...
just press record and play track
kind of thing"

ok, thank you @Ricita  :)

and @all any other ideas, what the new songwriting challenge should be???

 :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Maybe its these light-deprived days of winter @Mar T. ; I like the idea of a Spring Song :dance: :dance:- which could be the same as "-Another 'inspirational input' challenge".

And if it were a contest about pets .... Each would be the pet that each one would like, a cat, a dog, a Thai pig hahahaha
That is, a song from the vision of a pet, how he lives his life ... What he sees, what he hears, what smells .... hahaha

@Mar T. @Dutchbeat @DanJames @oorlab @robertkc

sounds like a good idea to me @Mora Amaro La Loba
but.... i have a pet, a very, very...extremely senior...or...just old  ::) ::)... cat...and i like your idea for a new songwriting challenge

but i think many of the songwriters out here will not have a pet....
but i guess ... they can make one up?  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

btw *edit* i am pretty sure @Rachel_D @Mo and @Goatrelated are in for this!!!

Hi @Dutchbeat
It is not necessary to have a pet, just imagine that you are a pet ... ::smiley:: ::smiley:: ::smiley:: ::smiley:: ::smiley::

Good morning!
Hm, why do you think that? Because every woman love pets?
To be honest  I f I would write a songs a bout pets  it wont be a nice cudlle song , oh no.... but i really don't know if I want write about keeping pets i guess nobody would understand that...
 However  i wish you  much fun as possible -)
To me the  most exciting with the last challenge was to do it with another personen that you rather don't know!
I would keep that maybe in combination with  one or two more criterias. I throw in the room just use 2 or 3 chords or ten words....

 I'm not sure how motivated I could get to write a song about or being a cat but I'll definitely give the annual cover (read murder) another persons song challenge a go, when it comes around again! (there's so many more songs contributed  by  kitchen folk in the last year that need to be made unrecognisable with the Dakoda 80's synth treatment! ha! lol!   ;D )
