She wrote the bassline melody on the keyboard, and hummed me the melody to go over it (and wrote it down on paper so I wouldn't get it wrong LOL  ) I then added a beat, and one new section.

This is our first collaboration, although this is mainly her.

Your daughter's one talented lady! Very melodic, but it also has a mean groove, particularly the dark bit at 2:15. I also like the little dissonance that crops up a couple times after 2:45!

As for duff notes----don't forget one of the hooks of Numan's "Are 'Friends' Electric?" began as a duff note. Grin

A dream team, that's for sure. Looking forward to more.  Smiley

This was our first real collaboration; she used to just make suggestions if she was in the same room as me while I was working on something!

I mainly did the beat and transcribed what she wanted as best as humanly possible. The part at 2:45 ironically enough was the one original section I contributed.

Jaymie's really talented. I like the melody. Tell her to keep it up! 3D Btw, did she tell why such title?

I'll let her know!

I asked her about the title...she just said she was thinking about the movie "Mean Girls" when she was working on it.

Tell her this is great! Reminds me of early ps1 games music! Make sure she has as many music tools as you can provide, so she can make the most out of her skills!
