    Hi. Im new here so hi to everyone and i suppose i will write a little about myself. Im currently studying music technology and Music and also doing music college auditions this year so its exciting stuff for me hehe. My real question is, is that ive been given a task to record a 6 - 8 multi track recording. and i wanted advice as to what songs would be a good choice. ive been advised that really im looking for No drums. I just need a simple song not one which is highly produced with lots of fx etc. But a song with basic harmonic range and not too difficult probably looking at a voice, guitar and piano or a simple small setup. if anyone has any ideas just let me knoww

    Thanks everso much. and wish me luck with my Royal Northern Audition tomorrow hehe

    Thanks again

    Make up one. Nobody can say you did it wrong.

    Keep it simple.

    Hard to suggest a song when nobody knows what you like, or how you play, or how you sing.

    Just do anything. Do it now. Get some practice in.

    There's a zillion 3 chord songs out there, and a zillion more to make.

    Ode to joy.
    Beethoven's ninth symphony. Fourth movement.
    Short and sweet. Though slightly more than three chords. I think it's 5.

    RNCM? I live about two miles from there. Let me know if you get in, and we'll share a pint, if you wish.

    As for the piece, Greener's suggestion is a good one, though I'd probably tend toward Gershwin, or maybe Harlem Nocturne. Just my preference, of course.

    Heyy, thanks for the replies the audition went well aswell :D. I just need a good song which is easily recordable something which isnt too tricky for performers and not too tricky to record. it cant hav drums but if the song has drums and you think it sounds asif itd work without them then thats ok. Im just in need of ideas. It doesnt matter on what i like really its just whats going to get me the most marks and the better grade overall. So having a good song to record makes it alot easier :)

    hackenslash: deffinately mate, that is if i get in tho haha. ill see thanks for the offer
