    1. Hello All, this months Recording Challenge topic was chosen by 3rdwaverider “The Beatles”. 3rdwaverider said “I had an idea: what if the challenge aspect of the recording is that we ask that the guitarist play any Beatles tune, but adapt it to his or her favorite genre: play it as a jazz tune (using chord embellishments), as a country tune, using major and dominant chords, as an acoustic tune, or finger style. Please also feel free to post Christmas songs. Next months winner will be chosen by the “Random Picker” and the winner will get to choose the next topic.
    2. That was superb @3rdwaverider beautifully played. Thank you for sharing it with us. 😎👏👏👏
    3. That was superb Wim, I really enjoyed listening to it! 😎👏👏👏
    4. This months Recording Challenge comes from me, the topic is Movies/Tv/Theatre. Any song or tune that has been used in a film or a theatre production or a television program. As usual the "winner":will be picked at random and the prize is that they get to choose the topic for the next challenge. 1. Wim VD1 playing “Tears in Heaven” 2. 3rdwaverider playing “Here’s that Rainy Day”
    5. 🎊Congratulations!🎉 All of your hard work, focus and determination has made you a most excellent player. 🎸😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 You are a real inspiration.🥇🏆🎓
    6. Henk if you have an iOS device then you have free access to GarageBand. You will find it in the App Store. GarageBand is an amazing software package which I highly recommend for a first DAW. If you are going to work with an iPad or iPhone a cheap but good way to connect your guitar is an iRig2 which is a good low cost interface. This is much better than using the internal microphone. If you are thinking about working with a Mac or Pc and had more cash to spend a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is a great interface (it does not work with tablets though). Macs also get GarageBand for free.
    7. @Wim VD1 that is so beautiful! I can hear Freddie Mercury singing when I play your track. Very delicate and emotional. Well done!😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
    8. This is great, thank you for posting it @Triple-o
    9. Thank you @Wim VD1, @matonanjin and @gotto I did have heaps of fun doing it. It is a great song. I was watching the live performance of it by the Stray Cats on YouTube, they were superb and it struck me as to how young they were!
    10. Here is my go at "Stray Cat Strut" by The Stray Cats. All the chords were barre chords here and all the instruments were real ones played by me. This recording is a first for me because: 1. I have actually used the Whammy Bar! 2. I played the drum parts with my electronic drum kit (the type that you play like a real drum kit with sticks and feet). But I did have to do a bit of timing correction (as with the guitar parts). I have played the song at a much slower tempo than the original. I have only just begun to be able to do barre chords again as I appear to be having a sl
    11. I have just checked the fund raising web site. They did not get enough funding and have cancelled the campaign. They said "This does not mean the cancellation of the Slite. We will now take some time to set back, think about our project, and how we can meet our end : to improve the way guitarists interact with their instrument and create the 21st century guitar. This is but a minor setback on our journey."
    12. Here is an article by John Bohlinger. Great insight Click Here The same pitfall is that if you only ever play along to original artist's recordings you can not hear how you sound.
    13. Sad news. Life can be so unfair. Goodbye to a great musician, rest in peace Eddie.💐🎸💐
    14. I kind of like some of them.🤔
