I decided to put this under news rather that in hear here - feel free to move

My daughter and I have been working on a song lately. She had the idea, most of the lyrics and on theme to the melody. I did some editing and contributed on finishing the melody.

We have planned to send in the song for participation of the Nordic Junior Eurovision song contest :)

Ok - were still working on this. Will try a few more vocal takes - and something with the rhythm guitar - but anyway - we are pretty happy with it thus far.

She'd love to have some comments :)

Obviously the song is in norwegian - it is a song about her best friend moving away.

That's a nice upbeat tune . . . very poppy (as in a pop song).
She has a cute voice . . .
and very good pitch. (I think I heard only one note a little flat.)

Good job, Maie.
And good luck with the competition.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Maie and Lars, very nice effort. yes, enter the competition.
you have a good song. the vocals have feel. I didn't need to understand Norwegian to feel the words. well done.
the guitar parts are a treat to listen throughout the song. I like the treble strings the most. has a Motown folk feel.
you could go for the full Motown sound and play a one stroke per four beat thing for a verse. I like how the rhythm you do play works with the drums. it does give the song an upbeat feel. (hence the Motown mention).
all my best for the win.

Thanks folk :) we appreciate it :)

Her pitch is normally very good - I guess playing the violin for some years starts paying off :) We only have some problems deciding on the right key. The reach is a little bit to large for her (F - bb). Her voice is untrained so I guess she will add a few tones in the top of her register after some practice.

and Dogbite - I forgot - Motown :oops: - think I'm a little bit to pale for that, but anyway, good idea with one stroke per bar in the verse - would that be the 3rd or the 4th stroke to get the proper feel?

edit - thanks blueline :)

Lars. it could be either 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. whichever feels right.
or maybe just the 1. lots of possibilities.

It keeps stopping at 0:36. :( I liked what I heared but her voice seems to fit better with 'softer' music, it kinda falls flat when the drums kick in. Can't say too much because I could barely hear half a minute (am I really the only one?) but what I heared was pretty cool. I do think she;d shine brighter in a more 'icelandic' sound, with softer handheld percussion, little bells, piano and such. Anyway, all the best!
