Round 7 Everyone!
Welcome back to the 'The Art of Music' contest! Music itself has many forms and genres all having their own unique flavors. Being a musician is an art, regardless what instrument you play or device you use to modify or create musical pieces with. The point of this contest is to encompass ALL of it. Following in the footsteps of my 'KillerPix Contest', each week, you will be given a theme.
I could totally feel the wind in my hair with those entries last week, they just blew me away! LOL! So, this week, we're going to do something totally different as I have been trying to get things situated for a show that will be on @ramblingradio tomorrow. The debut of 'Words with Witty'. It starts at 2 p.m. EST for those that would like to attend. In the process of setting up DLive, I got real frustrated and one thing that kept going through my mind was 'The Little Engine that Could'. So this week's theme is going to be - TRAINS. Have fun peoples!
