    This week's challenge: the funky break. You know - you're onstage 1/3 of the way through a triple or quad solo, you have a trajectory planned, you're setting up the next 12, and then the front-person yells out "Break it down!" and instead of a rhythm background it drops to just bass and drums and maybe a cut here and there.

    This should be the most accessible track you'll play to in a while - but you got to keep the funky mojo across the breaks.

    i liked the track... so simple that my lacking the basics shows up almost immediately.

    i rejected my first take, which then lead to rejecting the next five... at the seventh i put a stop to the madness...

    I like to think of myself as an uncommon loon. But no doubt I’m in the middle of the flock.

    i've always been annoyed by the use of Common in so many spectacular bird's names... Common Merganser, Common Murre, Common Raven, and certainly the Common Loon is the most regal of the family Gaviidae

    Here is mine. I got a little stuck on one idea. Sorry it gets a bit repetitive after a while.
