Rock AND Roll

Last night's rip roaring GUPPY EFFECT practice saw the creation of the musical foundations of two new original songs with nice rhythms and chord changes. Lyrics and melody still to come but it was a very productive and creative use of band practice time.

We also honed our stylistic skills by taking two existing original songs, "No Denying" and "Blue Thing From Space," and giving them a Rolling Stones feel and sound. Not sure how well we did, but you be the judge.

Link to song.

It is kind of like in high school English class when you had to try to write an essay "in the style" of a well known writer. I always felt I did poorly at that, but maybe not so bad at the musical equivalent.
