Simplicity Sells — One Note Samba

Here’s another example of how simplicity sells, and how a pattern with variation makes things interesting.  This One Note Samba really does only have one note, but what makes this song interesting is how often that note is played.  By changing the rhythm, even one note can be interesting.

Not everything has to be complicated to be masterful!  I think there’s something to be said about that in advertising too.  Don’t overwhelm your audience with things to try and “wow” them if you don’t have to.  Be creative with what you have–spice up the rhythm, or how loud you play your one note.

You’ll be surprised at what you can do if you stick with what you’re good at–even if it’s one thing!
