    Thank you @Brian H and @Noahclem! Right, this Collaboration is now closed to entries, and I'll get the video together ASAP. Please be patient, because I have a fair bit of 'real life' to get on with today as well. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Well the due date IS today, so if it makes it in, fine. If not, so be it.

    I did a warm up pass and then hit the red record button

    EDIT: just saw the above post from Simon. Missed the boat.
    So be it!

    It's your lucky day. I'm several hours behind where I planned to be, so your take will be included. :)

    Thank you all you lovely, patient and creative people! Here's the video. It's HD, so it's worth watching full screen for 38 minutes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did putting it together.

    Watching it now on the big TV in the living room. Fantastic production, great playing. Well done! I’m thrilled to be playing on this with all the other great players. Haven’t played live in over a year. This helps to scratch that itch a little bit. Thank you.

    Simon! Really cool video choices...it made the whole thing much more fun to listen to. All hail Mister Croft for his public spirit!!

    And to prove I listened to it all.....

    Stratobiker - super nice tone and sweet playing.
    S5tuart - love that big reverb with your stingy licks.
    amstratnut - smokey! Some old school in there, I'm feeling it.
    Kerry Brown - nice clean tone and authentic blueness.
    myredstrat - I dig your ideas, and that choked tone.
    simoncroft - ha! Doubled your blues with the Hammond!
    rrben29 - Love those doublestops. Played with real feeling.
    Raimonds - going for it! Nice overdriven sustain.
    duzie - hair on fire tone, and restrained playing.
    hawk_eye - super nice clean tone and clever playing.
    CigBurn - tone like an acoustic! Thoughtful playing.
    Mouse - rocking as usual. Very smart playing.
    Brian H - even more rocking! Crazy, daddy-o.
    SILENCER - Psychedelic, for sure. '67 in Frisco!
    Thrup'ny Bit - a completely different approach! I like it.
    Cerb - I can hear you feeling it out, thinking, exploring.
    Believer7713 - getting a nice sound there.
    RobZ69 - like your chord experiments. Sounds cool.
    DublinDave8456 - I dig that chimey tone, with and without the verb
    Noahclem - rocking an acoustic guitar! Good on ya. Very nice.

    Ha! Fantastic ending!

    and...

    Seamus OReally - Really nicely phrased blues, with great tone.

    Well done everyone. I'll fix the timing issue @amstratnut mentioned though.

    Holy smokes! About 4 solos in I thought "oh no, I hope Simon cut me out of there". He didn't, and I'm humbled.

    Thanks for putting this together Simon!

    Great work, everyone! I'm on my second listen now, just leaving it playing in the background while I work.
