Malaysia 55th Independence Day


Happy Independence Day, Malaysia!! Selamat Hari Merdeka!
And doesn't it make sense if I make an instrumental cover of a patriotic song on her national day?

But then which patriotic song to play?

Recently I saw one of my friends' Facebook post on my news feed, sharing the video on the right.

The song is called "Setia", which means Loyal. I remember the melody of the song as one of the Malaysian patriotic songs (we really have a lot of those in Malaysia).

It's a rearranged version of the original one. I don't really like the rapping part though.

The range of this song in C major doesn't really favor the playing of erhu. That's why I picked violin instead as it has an E5 open string and I don't have the go too near towards the bridge.

As I've never taken any violin lesson before, it's once again a nightmare for me to play it. As you can see, I didn't utilize the full bow, and I was having hard time getting the bow lied perpendicularly to the strings. *Retarded*

Anyway, hope you like it.

Happy 55th Birthday Malaysia!!
