Cool Yule

Cool Yule sample (0:23)

What its about

Christmas in the Caribbean - cool!

A pleasant instrumental ditty to cheer you up if you live in dark climes especially if you like vibraphones and xylophones

How it was written

The song starts with the melody:

The first two bars (0:04)
Start of Cool Yule

The melody line is repeated at the beginning of each verse

An interesting way to develop any song is to play around with the melody. Invert it (play it upside down as it were) or, as in this case, reverse it

Last two bars with the melody reversed (0:04)
End of Cool Yule

The melody was written on the guitar and transcribed to a vibraphone using the General MIDI (GM) vibraphone instrument and double-tracked with a xylophone instrument
