Spookey Ruben Contest

I’m entering a contest I’m not really qualified to win! 🙂

To enter, make a video of your rendition of Spookey’s guitar solo from his signature classic “These Days Are Old”. The prize is a signed Spookey Ruben guitar from Eastwood Guitars.

Spookey Ruben’s “Modes of Transportation Vol. 1” is one of my favourite albums of the 90’s, which I discovered after watching the video for “Running Away” on Much Music. “These Days Are Old” is one of my favourites from that album; unconventional vocal hook, quirky sounds and a killer solo. Very different from the rest of the stuff I was listening to at the time; his music heavily influenced the “hooky pop” side of my own writing style.

Back to the contest – I play a number of instruments at different skill levels, but I’ll be the first to admit I’m no shredder. What I CAN do, however, is make a dumb video documenting my best attempt!

Spookey’s latest album “Modes 3” is set to be released Feb 2016.
