Hey @Jim are you still going to enter this? I have now written a complete song and will try and record it over the next 3 weeks if I can carve out some time. It's a bit grungey and in my head it sounds like Black Sabbath (that Ab, Eb, G transition is very Tommi Iommi) meets Nirvana. Let's see if I can achieve that sound in practice!

Chords are:

Intro/Chorus: Cm Cm/B G Fm Ab G

Verse: Cm G Ab Fm Bb

Pre Chorus: Fm G Cm Ab Fm G

Hey @DanJames , I look forward to hearing your entry! I love the alternative rock sound and the root movement of the chord progression you chose kind of pushes it into that genre by default.
I'm actually considering the possibility of combining this 7 note contest with the kitchen retro rework or traveling song contest. ( I hope that that isn't against the rules.)

Hey @Jim are you still going to enter this?
...

Hi @DanJames, probably not.  I've got the chords for the melody, and I've done a returning melody (very old-fashioned, but hey)...was thinking of opening in the major version, then moving to G major (or something!) for a bit before finishing on the minor version, but I'll have to see if my muse will join me soon for that middle bit, think it needs a good melody.  ;)

Seeing as it's three weeks, and I'm always rubbish at deadlines, I doubt I'll get anything together in time... :-[

But I'm really interested in hearing yours, and Bill's when they're done (or during their creation)...maybe we should work on our versions whether or not we're submitting and then compare?  I think it's fascinating how different I imagine they are going to sound!  :D

Still working on this, starting to sound like Black Sabbath meets the Pixies, rudely interrupted by Judas Priest...

@Jim @Bill from November Sound , could I check my interpretation of the rules with you please?

The rules state:

"Serj’s 7 notes must be the first 7 notes of the composition
7 notes can be played in any octave, without tempo restrictions"

When Serj plays his notes, the Eb is lower than the Ab. Do you think in my opening melody I could play that one note (Eb) an octave higher (but keep the others as played by Serj?) Sure I can, but just wanted to make sure.

Thanks!

Dan

Uhhh.... @MrBouzouki , @Jim , @DanJames ....I just realized something. Creative Armenia? $5000?
$5000 Armenian = $10.34 in American.   :o

Haha @Bill from November Sound! That looks like a dollar symbol to me. The Armenian dram symbol looks like this ֏
Or maybe it's just a big scam!

well that was fun! I have finished my entry for the 7 Note competition:

https://soundcloud.com/andomobot/introspective-condemnation-demo-2017

I'm not going to change anything fundamental now, but feedback on the mix would be very helpful before the 15 Dec deadline. Thanks!
