Hold on, this week's theme for Open Hive Mic, #openmic, is really fulfilled in the true sense of the word for me. I have the feeling that the song I chose really told me "hold on, you need to practice a little more".

With the publication of the topic by Cabe, my search began. I always like to choose a composition from the genre of classical music, but this time I opted for light music. Do you know how many songs called Hold on exist? Countless. I listened to a lot of songs with that name, but I liked the song by Michael Buble the most. The structure of the song, the words and his voice prevailed in my decision to play a cover of this song.

I rehearsed the song for a few days. My arrangement of it is something between a cover and improvisation because I played it differently every time. The scores that serve me to look from are for voice and accompaniment, but I made a kind of fusion. I play a melody in my right hand, and in my left hand, I combine chords in the first strophe and broken chords in the second one. There is a part of modulation to another key, and that was the part I struggled with. I had to hold on, to continue from day to day to improve it, so here it is today.

I will try to add the original Michael Buble song, but I am not sure if it will appear. I have some problems now with my last two posts published through 3speak, as the part I edited with PeakD doesn't appear now in the post. So they are without any photo and the external links that I put when I edited. I think they are making some new things with the 3speak, so maybe a few days later it will work.

The lyrics of Hold On by Michael Buble

Didn't they always say we were the lucky ones?
I guess that we were once
Babe, we were once
But luck will leave you 'cause
It is a faithless friend
And in the end when life has got you down
You've got someone here that you can wrap your arms around
So hold on to me tight
Hold on to me tonight
We are stronger here together
Than we could ever be alone
So hold on to me
Don't you ever let me go
There's a thousand ways for things to fall apart
But it's no one's fault
No, it's not my fault
Maybe all the plans we made might not work out
But I have no doubt even though it's hard to see
I've got faith in us and I believe in you and me
So hold on to me tight
Hold on, I promise it'll be alright
'Cause it's you and me together
And baby all we've got is time
So hold on to me, hold on to me tonight
There's so many dreams that we have given up
Take a look at all we've got
And with this kind of love
What we've got here is enough
So hold on to me tight
Hold on, I promise it'll be alright
'Cause we are stronger here together
Then we could ever be alone
Just hold on to me
Don't you ever let me go
Hold on to me, it's gonna be alright
Hold on to me tonight
They always say we were the lucky ones
