    11:57pm.....
    11:58pm.....
    11:59pm.....
    12:00midnight Thursday New York Time

    and they are off...

    Welcome to another week of nonesense and tomfoolery and have we got a show for you..

    Now this probably is not gonna be to everyones taste but I was prompted by one of our regular contributors who I will not name (you know who you are Kevin...ooops). Something completely different this week cuz...well...we can all play 12bar blues can't we. Music with a different feel or bent. Music from around the world. Music to warm the cockels of ya heart.

    Here's 3 songs that's gonna get ya thinking. Remember this is the Challenge thread so be prepared to be challenged.

    Okay, Okay. I realise that these 3 maybe a little avante garde for some so I have included a 4th song this week:eek:.
    It's the good old Boogie Blues in G, so if you're not in the mood to think too hard this week or maybe just a little short of time, it's one that you can just rock out to and have a good time. See, you can please all of the people all of the time.;)

    Here they are folks, let's see what can do with these - slightly different - tunes. Good Luck





    and the one for those outside in the sunshine.....

    So, I'm gonna dedicate this one to Mr @Thrup'ny Bit who says that if I bring along "fava beans and chianti" (I have no idea what that is) I can have the 1st foxtrot with his misses.
    Apparently in my ignorance I have lifted a Jazz classic - but hey this is the Challenge thread....and people tell me often that I AM challenged.

    Hey, Thrup'ny.. I don't know who this jazz dude is but I would bet you after 2 or 3 pints he would be a lot of fun at a party.

    Be impressed, be disgusted.. here it is..
