September Rehersal

Today Voltage gathered at our house for another rehearsal. We practiced our new song- ‘Don’t Get Lippy With Me’. I really love our new song; I think that it might be our best yet. It’s got a crazy riff that gets inside your head, and the drums are very loud. I have been experimenting with some flashy fills, which I think are energetic and a lot of fun. There is still a bit of work to do on timing, but I am going to practice with a metronome before the next rehearsal to work out that problem.

Here’s a video of our rehearsal. The sound on the video is shocking- it sounded much better in real life. Hope you enjoy.

Voltage Jamming!

Last weekend we had another rehearsal where we rocked out. We spent the afternoon working on our new song- it went very well, and the best bit is that I get a singing part (well backing singer at least). Jack wrote the lyrics to the song, which are awesome and rocky, with a very catchy chorus that I can already hear our fans chanting. More on that soon…

Meanwhile I have applied to do my Grade 3 drums, and am waiting for a date. I am looking forward to this because I know I can pass, and I am itching to start grade 4. 

I drink blue juice from under the sink!

Jack managed to forget his microphone, so he ended up using my sisters Karaoke mic. Nice fetching pink mic mate.

Iggy concentrating as he demonstrates the new riff.

This is a shot clip of Voltage just jamming as we try to work out some new material. 
I hope you like it!

Rock on dudes!
