Here is the topic in which you can post your melody ideas for the anthem.

Note: Only post basic melodies. One per person. After the deadline we will vote on the three best melodies. Then we will see who can arrange them together the best.

Guidelines
Mood: Inspirational, Majestic, Happy, Proud.
Time Signature: 4/4. Lets keep this basic people.
Key: C. We can transpose if we need to.
Difficulty: Keep this simple. Not to fast. While writing think if somebody new can play it but somebody more familiar with the ocarina can spruce it up and add grace notes.

Deadline: June 22th.

I will be on vacation and without internet on the 8th and for a whole week. If you want to contact me I can reply after this time.

Sorry it's not an actual anthem response, but as I was brainstorming I suddenly thought of a question. Would it be okay if this is based off another song? Or would you like completely original compositions?

I think songs based on other songs would be a good idea, just a long as it's changed a little... Even if it is just lyrics xD *plans to start work on the borat song* xD

Hey, 2/4 is ok right? XD It's basically the same as 4/4 anyway (well not technically)

Edit:

I've came out with some stuff.

Listen.


Well, I know it's more complicated than you thought of, but I can't help but modulate to Eflat major, it just makes it sounds so much grander XD (the modulation).

The range and everything else can be changed still, so no worries. Plus, if this is chosen im thinking of putting this at the end end, to make a grand ending, while the others can go first (with a slightly less grand themes, just like Pomp!).

Maestoso means majestically. Oh and the piano accompaniment is just as a guidelines to the harmony (because harmony is just as important as the melody). The big accompaniment I thought of for this is the orchestra... Would be cool to have strings tremoloing broken chords, harp glissandi, brass stuff and all...

So yeah.... PICK MINE T.T :P

Go :TON:

I hope you like it!
