    hey all, due to time constraints, and other things, i'm going to be dropping out of the jam and challenge series for the time being...

    so as a so long for now, here's a super easy challenge... play some blues.

    here's a downloadable



    and here's a video... the track is purchased and the maker likes it if you post your results on his youtube... so maybe you'd like to do that... or not...

    You're a good man Monte. May your musical journey long continue.

    thank you Simon... i'm pretty sure for many i'm just a "virtue-signalling politically correct idiot snowflake libtard" :cool: (dilligaf to quote @fezz parka )

    in any case, that don't mean we don't all get the blues...

    here's my take... i thought i was warming up and then when it abruptly ended, i looked at the screen and saw i'd hit the record button... but i promised myself i would post my first recorded take so here it is

    Don't be a stranger for too long! After quickly dialing in the tones I wanted for quick switching, in the same spirit as your take, this was my first full run through, clams and all.

    Firstly.. Man that track is smoooooooth, I love it. Has me thinking a Santana meets Atlanta Rhythm Section cover of "The thrill is gone" is hiding in there just beyond the veil.

    Totally get the need to step back/away sometimes, especially when I find myself having to self curate my responses to things. Which seems to have become a habit, so I focus elsewhere, record my stuff, practice etc and just lay back out and away from the noise. The social media forest is filled with roving herds of wild boors lately it seems and who needs the useless grief. Anyway keep picking and popping in when you feel like it, plenty of us dig what you do.

    That’s kind Omar but it doesn’t seem to save anywhere on my iPad
    I’m just getting used to the thing and sometimes regret not having the sort of control I had on my MacBook

    In honour (or honor, depending where you are) of Monte's continual and positive presence on Jams, Challenges, PJWs and more over the years, I've come out of the woodwork to persuade my soft little fingers to say thank you.

    I'm sure you have more important things to do than hang around for these. Best wishes.

    Monte, I will miss your music and comments. Come back soon. I didn't see your post so I did a 296 as well, but renamed it to 296 and 1/2. It has 3 more tracks. Sorry for the confustion :) :)
