I am a HUGE Frank Zappa fan, and last year I decided to rework one of his instrumentals and make it my own. The song "Watermelon in the Easter Hay" was so beautiful sounding to me (and it still is.) I love the little 9-note vamp that pretty much runs the song, and the way the entire song switches between 4/4 and 5/4 every other measure.

So basically what I did to this song was change everything except the main vamp which I felt was at the heart of this composition. I would've posted this as a cover song, but I really didn't cover anything except the basic 9 notes behind it.

So, please, be open-minded and do not call this "blasphemous" or "disrespectful" to Frank. He inspired this all to come out of me, and I find it entertaining. (And in the end, isn't it all about entertainment?)

Thank you for choosing Telf and enjoy your ride on "Cantelope in the Easter Hay"!!!!!
