Ok we have a tie.. from the six options we all voted for, there's two (excellent!) assignments that both ended up with 26 points:

1. ( @MichaelA ) Retro Rework (Dig out one of your old songs and republish it, or record it again how you used to do it. Then create a 2017 rework of it and publish that for comparison. Most people's style and technique moves on, often improves, as they keep writing. But sometimes we have old nuggets of lost gold in our song-writing attics that if rewritten now could be made to shine!)
and
2. ( @Leonard Scaper ) Create a traveling song

I've edited the poll, re-set the votes and we'll start voting again, only for this weekend, to select the final assignment of this year.
I'd like to call all voters (mentioned here: @CrystalSuzy , @Dakoda , @Dutchbeat , @Zedd , @Goatie , @Vince , @Bill from November Sound , @Mark Luto , @Leonard Scaper , @MichaelA , @oorlab , @DanJames , @Jim , @MrBouzouki and @Michael  ) to help us choose the final result.. Anyway both options are fantastic imo!

Cheers, and please vote for the winning assignment kitcheners!

 ...not sure if November Sound could do the rework competition, at least the way it is described. I have stuff written way back (long before I met Melissa) in classical or jazz genre but it was never recorded at all.
I'll be along for the ride no matter what.  :)

November Sound is based on the Mother, Father & Son musical trio of Melissa, Bill & Will. I'm the father so anything I post will have my wife singing and/or my son playing percussion.

Funnily enough @Leonard Scaper, the one I'm thinking of re-working is a travelling song of sorts as well...do we get extra points for hitting both categories?

Genius thinking!  ;D

Voted too.
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!
