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."

ย 

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.

ย 

Looking forward to hearing you play,

Wim.

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 differenceย ๐Ÿ™‚

@Wim VD1ย ย I like what you've done with this song. ย I can hear an improved groove and 'thump' in the baseline. ย If my foot counts, it wanted to move while I played this for my wife. ย She agrees with my assessment as well. ย Keep going, the work effort is definitely paying off. ย Well done! ย My only criticism would be to elevate your attack to get more volume and showcase your confidence. ย

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 VD1

William,

I get the nailsโ€™ dilemma. ย  Iโ€™m an avid gardener and longer nails can be a real pain, so Iโ€™m constantly balancing their length. ย 
I enjoy your musical posts, so keep them coming. ย D Hamburger is one of my favorite TF instructors. ย 
Best,

Bryan

Hey everyone,

Not sure if this "falls" (see what I did there) in with the Autumn theme but let me know what you think. Reached session 6 in L&M and I decided to do Scarborough Fair.
