    That works for me. My point is, this is a community, volunteer-driven thing and there's no real authority deciding these things. If a track doesn't suit you, skip it, muddle through it, or make suggestions for the next track. It's all good here!

    I for one have done a ton of tracks, including "easy" jams, that haven't suited me. I often learn from them, either about music or about myself. But even if I don't, there's no harm in making music, no matter how it turns out. And some of these ill-suited tracks turned out well enough to my standards and I still listen to them driving to work.

    Speaking of which, it's time to get going.

    Oh, I am not criticizing, it's just an observation.

    This is short, and you'll thank me for it :confused:

    The backing track threw me, I just couldnt find a good starting point or scale.
    Made me think about it though, and thats not a bad thing.

    No worries. I suppose I’m a bit sensitive given how things ended there for s but.

    Naaaa, its an illusion from the black shirt :D
    In truth, I probably have dropped some pounds. I gave up carbs and red meat.

    Good for you! quitting carbs and red meat isn't easy :)
    I have gained in two months what I have lost in Ramadan :confused:

    @carolinaeasy That was delivered with some intensity, energy nd a piercing tone.

    @TheDuck That sounded like an excellent place to start and you seemed right at home as usuala and I very much like what you did.

    You can play Am pentatonic through the whole thing but you might wan to stay away from C and F over the Bm chord.

    Thanks, it was fun making it and it's a treat hearing you all play over it, even though it may be a lemon of a track, as @fezz parka suggests ;) I kind of liked the progression and it seemed pretty clear to me as I playe daround with it, but my taste in music may not conform to that which is generally considerd good taste :D

    I very much wish I was anywhere near a guitar but I'm not. I had maybe 15 minutes to play around with this before having to pack and get on a flight. I will have time this weekend and maybe it turns out to be a weird thing that I'll end up kicking myself over :whistling:

    @carolinaeasy - Oh so tasty. Almost a John Frusciante flavor going on. Very nicely played.

    @s5tuart - Make it cry Bro, make it cry. Sweet.

    @roger@pennyfilc - Nasty (in a good way) vibrato and tone. Bit of 'tude in there, and it works well. Well played Sir.

    @LeicaBoss - Fat raunchy tone. Cool 70s vibe, some sweet licks in there too. Very cool.

    I suggested that if one perceives something as difficult or different, the best thing to do is to make the best of what is there: making lemonade from lemons.

    I also said with thematic development and voice leading, any chord can go to any chord, any note can go go any note.

    Scales build chord progressions. There are also circle progressions. That's where ii/V/I and other progressions come from.

    This stays well within the lines of G major. It's interestingly laid out. It doesn't follow a tried and true pattern and that's cool, and challenging. :)

    Nice track, Cerb, thank you!
    I've been off from playing for a while, now I need to train my fingers. Played clean as @fezz parka usually suggests, then added schidtload of FXs.
    Dont thing I delivered the beauty of the track, but nevertheless, here is my try.

    I like it a lot and I think you did a great job in keeping it a bit spaced and emotional while deliviring it with some punch, if that makes sense...

    Yes! Slow and sweet, dripping of feeling. I was just anticipating the chorus when it stopped :) Was it deliberate?
