@Nutty 1 Hi Mandy, I would suggest to broaden the scope a bit and add also Rock to it. Is that ok?

Wim.

Great topic to start the new decade @Nutty 1 and @Wim VD1.  And, Mandy, how did you find that perfect Peanuts cartoon to use?!?!😉🤣

I am now working on the the L&M Fingerstyle course and had this song on top of my to-do list for the holiday season.

Wow @Wim VD1 you never cease to amaze me with your skills. That was superb, with just the right touch, unhurried and gentle.

Mandy, thank you for your nice words.

When playing this for my wife, she asked me if I was playing it slower than the original. Now I can tell her I play it unhurried. I like that word 😀.

Hi all, this is my first foray into uploading a recording it may or may not work (any tips please for the best way to upload from SoundCloud much appreciated).  This is a bluesy sounding tune from my son's classical guitar preliminary grade book called Tirando Blues.  Again this is also my first foray into actually recording a song, so I'm learning on the way.  This was recorded, according to my limited budget, via Behringer Guitar Link plugged into my laptop and recorded into Audacity software😀

@Nutty 1, @matonanjin and @IanD, Thank you so much for your kind words.  This recording malarky is very new to me and I find I have a love/hate relationship with my recording gadget, its very unforgiving.  I do hope to contribute again to the challenge.  I have really enjoyed listening to your recordings too!  Thanks again!😊

Greetings!

One of my guitar related resolutions for this year was to focus a little less on exercises and drills and more on learning actual songs.  Part of that was a goal I set for myself to record some songs as part of the forum's monthly challenge and post them here.  Here are my first attempts at doing just that...  (I hope the links work!)

Blues or Rock?  I couldn't decide so I thought I would record one of each:

@Freewill Welcome and thanks for sharing your music with us.  I could not get the Sound cloud links to work.. when you upload there I suggest you use the "share" option which gives you the correct URL to copy/paste here.

Regards Neil

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement: it means a lot to be a member of a supportive community.

Ian: Thanks also for the feedback about the tone on "sunshine", I actually worked on that for awhile until I thought it sounded decent with the right amount of "edge" to it.  The guitar sound in the recording is coming straight out of the amp: I don't add anything with the DAW, I just adjust the volume levels and pan the individual tracks.

@Freewill  Hi fellow Newbie to the challenge.  Congrats, that was very beautiful, I really enjoyed listening.  Hope to hear more recordings from you in the future 😊👏

@Simira Congrats to you also on posting your first recording!  Very haunting, but catchy and beautiful: I found that I kept playing your song over in my mind for awhile after I listened to it.

I really enjoyed this experience: trying to get a track right requires some work (...and a few more "takes" than one would imagine...), but sharing the final product with others is rewarding.

Another month; another challenge!  No rest for the weary!  Only this time I am not going to wait for the month to be almost over before I start recording...

I am looking forward to hearing your next song.

Take care.
