  1. I have just received my reply from Positive Grid, they apologised and said "I've checked on your order and expect it to ship to you on or before August 31, 2020. Guaranteed!" Feeling a lot more positive now (pun intended!) I like the word Guaranteed! I like the fact that they answered too.😎 Incidentally while reading their website I saw a suggestion that those of us who are waiting for our amps could install the Spark App and take a look at it. I am pleased to tell you that there is a feature in the app that allows you to unlock the functions by typing in your order number. Bingo! πŸ₯³ So far I am impressed. I can open up songs and see the chords and play along and I have also got the smart jam to work using an acoustic guitar. You can even edit the chords and change the tempo or transpose the smart jam track you have created. I discovered lots of this in other people's Youtube videos and have got it to work on my iPad app. It almost feels worth it just for the app!🎸🎸🎸 I looked at an app for Mac where you had to pay Β£1 per track so the same money would buy me 120 tracks (this was one of my thoughts before purchasing the Spark). Spark gives you all of the Youtube video tracks plus your own iTunes tracks. I have not looked into Spotify yet. If you are really unlucky I may make a video to show you.πŸ˜†
  2. Positive Grid may still be experiencing problems with the shipping for some orders. When I first ordered the amp PG’s tracking system said it would be shipped β€œaround 17th to 20th August”. Yesterday morning it said β€œaround 9th August”. I thought WOW they may post it this week. Yesterday evening it had changed to β€œbefore 31st August”. Their website today boasts that they are now in stock and worldwide shipping is 5 to 7 business days. I have filled in their contact form asking for clarification of the situation regarding my order.
  3. Beautifully done @Wim VD1 it really does sound like you have a bass player in there. Top job!πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  4. Well played @Skip Russell, great tone too.πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  5. That was lovely @Fretless, a perfect blend of guitar, piano and drums, mellow and flowing. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  6. Thank you Maria, I searched for Sessionband in the app store and there is even a ukulele one free!
  7. Hello Everyone, The theme for the Recording Challenge for August 2020 is 🎩"Jazz" πŸ‘ and comes from Skip Russel This is what Skip said "For this months guitar recording challenge, I suggest recording a Jazz Standard. There are thousands of standards to choose from. Pick up a Real Book or Fake Book, or look in the Learn & Master Guitar course chapter on Jazz. In addition, this month Steve is launching the Jazz Standard Academy, it would be great for all of us enrolled to submit a recording of a standard we are working on." Here is a list of Jazz Standards from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_jazz_standards however I am not strict so you can post anything which loosely fits the category or mentions Jazz. 1. Fretless playing "Spirit Song" 2. Skip Russel playing "All of Me" 3. Wim VD1 playing β€œAutumn Leavesβ€œ
  8. Mike that was superb, smooth and flowing and beautiful! Thank you for sharing it with us. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  9. Stunning! I bet she plays like a dream. Enjoy!😎
  10. πŸ₯³ Happy Birthday Steve, thank you for teaching me how to play guitar. It has made a big difference to my life. Have a great day! πŸŽ‰
  11. @matonanjin I have just jumped in and pre-orderd a Spark amp in the "Last Chance" sale. Although there have been delays in the manufacturing and shipping earlier this year (mainly due to Covid-19) the word on the street is that it is worth the wait. Positive Grid seem to be trying to keep updated about deliveries now and there is even an online order tracking feature which gives me an estimate of when my amp may ship. What fun! One thing that (out of many!) I am not doing is jamming to guitar tracks or playing with bands so I am hoping that this amp will at least get me starting to play with tracks. I quite fancy the "follow my guitar " feature as well and the fact that you can just search for a guitar hero's sound and instantly get the simulation of their setup that would sound a bit like they do (if I could play like them that is πŸ€“).
  12. @gotto that is indeed something special. Superb playing and singing you have produced an excellent track there, well done to you and your granddaughter!πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  13. Wow @Slaphappy that sounds great, you are a very accomplished player. Thank you for sharing it with us. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  14. That was a complex piece and you played it really well. You are way too critical of yourself Doug, thank you for sharing it with us. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  15. Well done @Skip Russell, that was great.πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  16. Me too, I have never heard of some of those songs and @Oldjock Jazz is definitely missing! I often wonder how these lists are compiled and I think they are lists from just one perspective. Fun though.πŸ˜†
  17. This is a fun article, how many did you guess right? I love the comments that the writer makes about each song. Should this be our learning list? πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€“ 18 Songs people always ask guitarists to play
  18. @Wim VD1 that was excellent! Beautifully played and with the great tone that we always hear from you. πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  19. Thank you @Fretless @matonanjin @Wim VD1 now I need to practice it with more complex songs. 😁

  21. Excellent playing @NeilES335 and a lovely tone too. A very beautiful song.πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
  22. Hello Everyone, This months Recording Challenge topic was chosen by Wim VD1 🀩"A little special"☘️ Wim said "The challenge is to record a song that has something special. "Special" could be the use of a specific technique like bends, hamer-ons or pull-offs, slides, octaves or harmonics. "It could also be the use of some chords that go beyond major or minor triads like sevenths, 2 chords, sus chords, chords with color tones or anything special you can come up with." So get recording everyone and give us something to listen to! Best wishes Mandy 1. NeilES335 playing "Mon Cheri Amour" 2. Nutty 1 playing "Edelweiss" 3. Wim VD1 playing "This is my Father's World" 4. Skip Russel playing "All the Things You Are" 5. Eracer Team Doug_H playing "Guitar George" 6. Slaphappy playing his own composition "Wasting Time in A Major" 6. gotto and grandchild playing and singing "I Love Rock and Roll" 7. Muzikluvah Mike playing "The White Pass Trail"
