Creative Brief

This is based on an old old melody called The Lark in the Clear Air. Sometimes played as a slow air, but there are words to it too.

Full history here:

I have created a background of ocean waves and played the tune one time round on electric guitar. 

This melody always reminds me of the sea, winter winds, the smell of sea weed. It is happy/sad/poignant/resolute all at the same time...

I have left room for 3 more iterations which could be the melody straight or perhaps variations on the melody.

Also, it would be nice to add some chordal backing and some base movement too.
