  1. Hi Bryan, I have found that my attack also depends on the length of the fingernails of my picking hand. Even though I play with flesh, I need enough nail to support it. The nails are now a little longer and the difference is really audible in the melody. Wim.
  2. This one is not really related to the changing weather, so I take the "any other song" option here. It's another David Hamburger tune from a TrueFire course. @Plantsman13, following your advice for this recording, I have used the metronome at half speed focusing on the 2 & 4 to maximize groove. Let me know if you notice any difference 🙂 Wim.
  3. The Summer Challenge has been won by @Eracer_Team-DougH For the Autumn Challenge, Dough suggested doing something about Changing to Cooler Weather. He said: "The "jazz" group (like @NeilES335) could do something like Autumn Leaves.. the 'pop' people could do something like California Dream'n (all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey...)etc." As for the summer challenge, the number of entries allowed per participant is not limited to 1. You may submit as many songs as you like. We will still draw 1 winner per challenge, who gets to pick the theme for the next challenge. Everyone is free to follow this suggested theme, but you may also submit any song of your own choice. Looking forward to hearing you play, Wim.
  4. Bryan, I retrieved both video's. Here are the links for all who are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfEkKNW6R3U&t=479s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWOa0vfv5FY Just tried to play "Right or Ronk" focusing on the 2&4 using the metronome at half speed. Not easy to start, but it works once I'm locked in. I'll practice some more days and record it again. Thanks for this great info. I definitely learned something today 🙂 Wim.
  5. @Plantsman13, thanks. It is this kind of feedback that pushes me to improve. Maybe I should not record this kind of solo arrangements to a click/metronome any longer. I have the feeling that this takes away some of the natural groove. Wim.
  6. This is my last recording for this summer challenge. It's another David Hamburger tune who dedicated it to Dave Van Ronk. Wim.
  7. That's another nice sounding collaboration, Neil. Are the 3 parts recorded simultaneously? I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing. Wim.
  8. I am still used to the monthly cycle of learning and recording a song. So this is some more playing on the porch of another dead thumb solo arrangement (composed by D. Hamburger). Wim.
  9. @Nairon, I enjoyed listening to your rendition of this classic Hank Williams song. You are progressing well in your learning! Wim.
  10. Yes, Ron, I am on his mailing list. He teaches the style of rootsy blues I want to be able to play. I am working my way through his TrueFire courses, which will keep me busy for many months.
  11. Rosedale Blues is a slow steady thumb blues in E from David Hamburger's Fingerstyle Blues Factory course on TrueFire. Wim.
  12. Well played, @Eracer_Team-DougH. You get a nice sound out of your Sheraton. Thanks for sharing. Wim.
  13. Dear guitar friends, I'd like to try out a new format for our recording challenge. So far it has been monthly, but lately we have usually had only a few submissions per month. Therefore, I would like to change the interval to quarterly. So from now on there will be a summer (July-September), fall (October-December), winter (January-March) and spring (April-June) recording challenge. The number of entries allowed per participant is no longer limited to 1. You may submit as many songs as you like. We will still draw 1 winner per challenge, who gets to pick the theme for the next challenge. Everyone is free to follow this suggested theme, but you may also submit any song of your own choice. For this summer, we will start with the theme "Blues...or any other song you like". Looking forward to hearing you play, Wim.
  14. Congrats, @matonanjin. I just bought a full Mahogany parlor guitar and for blues fingerpicking I like it more than my Spruce - Rosewood guitar. Wim.
