OK. Spent this morning sketching out a possible tune. The loose rhyming scheme and rather random metre of the Blueprint has taken me to what would usually be a starting point. From here I'd now cut some parts and change others to suit my thoughts as I progress. But to follow the rules of this challenge I'll be leaving everything as it was writ! Except to change "grove" to "groove", I assume that was a typo, I may be wrong.  ;)

OK, off to work.
I have no authority or standing here, only opinions. :-)

Yep, I've changed grove to groove, I'm sure STC will confirm but it deffo looks like a typo.

Good work though, I thought mine was done, then I left it a day, listened again and now think it needs more work. It was just the age old problem of that honeymoon period just after you've composed something, it seems great at the time but in the cold light of day it actually isn't :(

Wellll....

I guess they mean the same thing and its only one word. I've left out the odd word to make it flow with my composition (ie the second 'something' in the first line)

You gotta do what you gotta do :)

LOL, JUST READ THAT AS I WENT TO POST THE ABOVE HAHA...

Shining does flow better :)

That's what I said in the intro, the only trouble is that this section is a bit quiet and people might not see the entries to review them. It does keep them together though for easy comparison and all regulars should spot them as they appear on the recents list on the home page. So yes, I think we should post them in this section, a bit like the pairs comp.

If they do end up in the main reviews section, make it clear that they are part of the Blueprint challenge so they can be easily identified and don't confuse anybody.

Oh my oh my.... I just found this thread and now I am way behind you guys, so expect something pretty rough and ready from me. Perhaps due to my late ness I should be given an extra two or three months :))

GREAT to have you on board SF. Its more of a challenge than a competition, the next Sunday deadline was just to stop people hearing other versions and inadvertantly being influenced by them. The more the merrier on this :)

This can run and run really :)

Wow this was fun.  Such a challenge trying to stick to the lyrics, there were a couple of pieces that really challenged me but I guess that is what it is all about..........now roll on Sunday so I can hear what everyone has written.
