THE TIGSOURCE MUSICAL JAM REDUX AGAIN

Here's how it will go down:

-I (The host) will Provide a theme for the challenge
-You will be given ONE WEEK to compose a song with said theme
-You will post your song HERE, in the official challenge thread
-Other participants will listen to your song. You will listen to other participants' songs. Critique will be had.
-A winner will be chosen by the host.
-The winner will host the next challenge.

OK... Are you ready?

The theme of the challenge is...

ONE-NOTE BASSLINE

Compose a piece of music featuring a bassline.  This bassline must only play one note. You may have other instruments, and they can play any notes you wish. But if the bass plays anything other than the note it started with, you lose.

Examples of one-note basslines:
TV On The Radio - Poppy
Paul McCartney - Let `Em In (except during the chorus... don't listen to that part)
Boards of Canada - Ready Let's Go
Simple Minds - Waterfront
LCD Soundsystem - Losing My Edge

Required Reading:  
I couldn't think of anything to put here. Um... Here's an article about a dog with big muscles. Read that.

Challenge ends February 16, 2012 at 6:00 PM (GMT - 8:00)

DEADLINE MOVED:  
Challenge ends Tuesday, February 21 at 8:00 PM (GMT - 8:00)

That's everything you need to know.  Now, make some music!

Good question!  I would say no, octaves don't matter.  c-1 and c-5 are the same note.

I have the bassline and drum pattern, I just want some screeching solo and some sample effects. I'd use an electric guitar, but I have no recording equipment... any ideas on how i can reach a similar "screeching" effect with software? (reason preferably)

How about samples? I tried making a melody on the computer but it really doesn't sound satisfying unless I use a physical instrument. Without recording equipment, this is not possible unless I take samples from the internet.
