Liner Notes: 

FAWMSTOCK Saturday 3PM EDT @Robyn Mackenzie skirmish prompt from @IA Bard Cards 'Vehicle' with optional added prompts to use 7/8 time and a dramatic change in tempo. Written in 30 minutes.


remove chords
Electric Vehicles
Dramatic change in tempo
7/8 time
alternating with vamp

Fast tempo
Electric vehicles
Are really quick
With instant torque
More fun than a stick

Electric vehicles
can’t go as far
Most have less range
Than a similar gas car

Electric vehicles
Cost less for fuel
Fewer moving parts
To need repair with tools

Electric vehicles
Are tricky on trips
Take awhile to charge
Plan to be a tourist

Electric vehicles
Are fun to drive
When I’m feeling zippy
Thrilled to be alive

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Hey! This skirmish was meant for you given the subject and time signature and you nailed it! Great job with the 7/8 and tempo. Nice tight lyrics too!

Wow, what a great take on the card! I really enjoy the chords you use, and the tempo changes work really well.

Very metalfoot-sounding perpetual guitar sound there. Biggrin Great write on a theme dear to your heart!

I admire how you work with so many prompts and you always follow the musical challenges too! Did a good job with the tempos here. The lyrics have a cute feel to them almost like a children's song and I actually quite like the chords together too.
