^ course! Don't worry about anything (even time limit) - just present us a piece of music that expresses how you feel about a waterfall.

Can't do it tonight, but I'll definitely try and get something in. Any chance of this becoming a regular thing?

I actually came up with some of my best compositions aaaages ago working on music for art by a friend of mine. Well, it was my best composition then.

This kind of thread is simultaneously a "composition critique" thread and an open chillout and exchange of ideas thread. It also makes people explore their musical horizons. What more can you ask for in terms of an MT thread?

Btw, nice little piece colorhue. If that was your first time composing on request you're going to go far with it.

Satch is brilliant at naming his songs, most of them give that feel of what they are about.

I'll have a go tonight and see if I can think of something, i'll try and have a good think and make something i usually would make.

Working on a short piece as we speak. I've come up with a concept good enough that I'm thinking of expanding it into a greater work.

I've finally found an excuse to get my counterpoint on. Lydian style.

Okay, first I had something ambient; but I decided that was done so much, and although it sounds good, it isn't fun for me

So I tried like a classically style played thingy. (I think it's counterpoint i don't know)

Instead of visioning the waterfall, I visioned how I would be inspired if I was at a real waterfall playing guitar.

I really wish I had a classical guitar and that I could play better, but I'm not so very good at fingerstyle.

Absolutely gorgeous, that's my personal favourite entry so far. Great approach (you at the waterfall, cool way to look at it...) and great execution.

That one sounded really good

Are we allowed to change our entry once it's submitted? I'm not really happy with mine now xD

Okay then

I'll edit this post with the new one when I come back

I think this is much better, as I'm pretty sure water in the background fits better then a low piano and tubular bells bit xD And converting it to a mp3 made it sound a touch better, so I'll upload that too xD

Guitar Pro 5.2
MIDI
MP3

Okay, the Midi file is in there at the bottom of this post.

Thanks Freepower. It's just the sort of thing I play when my girlfriend gets stressed out by uni so it came quite easily really.

I scrapped the lydian concept.
I started out by trying to invoke a tropical atmosphere, but quickly got bored and went other (more insane) places. It starts out with an upbeat major theme, and then descends into pure compositional wankery (I included a guitarist "inside joke" of sorts. Cookie to whoever catches it)

Both MIDI and PT are included.

Here's mine. I think I tried to pack too much into too short a space, so it's very messy but I think it has a little bit of potential in there somewhere - I also made it in about 2 minutes

UG doesn't want to let me attach my 4KB .zip because apparently the file is too large and the maximum is 2MB

Anyway, it's here.

Archeo's had a bit too much wankery in it for it to be waterfall-ish IMO. I lol'd at 32/2. Solid piece though.

Colohue and JamesDouglas' were good as well.

Title-Waterfall

here is my go at it.

made in Reason 4.0

spent about an hour on it. in order to get it to respond correctly the release of the water doesn't end for another min. or so after the song ends. I kinda like it that way though.
