We are excited to witness the newest creations shared in this Round #6 of Season Two of the #smlchallenge
The Steemit Music League Challenge is an open music contest for rappers, MCs, singers, vocalists, musicians, and producers. Basically if you have a passion for music you can submit an entry every round.
It was created to provide the vocalists, rappers, musicians, & producers of Steemit who are chasing their dreams an avenue to be highlighted and earn additional recognition, feedback, and rewards.
As another way to help support Steemians chasing their dreams with music, DSound is partnering up with the Steemit Music League.
DSound's support of the Steemit Music League will allow for greater recognition and rewards the Steemians who take part in the SML's contests and challenges.
We are very excited about this partnership and what it means for the community and look forward to inspiring more real, positive change here on the STEEM blockchain.
Without further adieu here are the details of the Steemit Music League Challenge S2:R6:
This round's theme is:
With St. Patrick's Day around the corner, what a way to show respect than to create some awesome Celtic Music.
Celtic Music is characterized by melodic variation. It is usual for the melodic line to move up and down the primary chords.
A lot of different instruments are used in the creation of Celtic Music like:
Rappers, musicians, and vocalists can incorporate the Celtic influence and/or instruments to create their entries.
Producers can create that Celtic style beat that incorporates the essence of this type of music.
However this Celtic Crossroads theme resonates with you let's hear what creativity and inspiration you use to make this music that will make you feel good.
Upload your entry using DSound by going here: https://dsound.audio/#/upload
