Yeah, I'm on there.  I'm surprised that more of us aren't, to be honest with you.  I know a lot of you are much better than I am.

Since Nick called for strummers, I thought I'd get the ball rolling by strumming something, but Mike beat me to it, and posted some picking numbers.  It wasn't until last night that I posted my flatpicking break.  Oh, well! It's a lot of fun to play, anyway!

Took me a while to get the nerve up to do this!  I thought I'd do a finger picking one and a strum/picking one.

Mark...I LOVE the I'll Fly Away.  I think I'll try to pick that out sometime soon.  I like the Banjo Ben youtube channel as well and have been working on the Old Home Place lead.

I think your stuff sounded great man, keep it up!

For anybody thinking about it but bummed that 35 seconds is not enough, i've been allowing up to 45 seconds.  Come on, we gotta get at least 3 contestants since we have 3 prizes.  Who's game?

Thanks!  I like a lot of what Banjo Ben does, and plan on learning the Foggy Mountain Breakdown, but good gracious - it's a handful!  Between that and learning Barrios and Albeniz, I'm swamped! [;)]

I also like the fingerpicking style you show in your E Diddy piece.  Great stuff, that!

It's kinda funny...with both of us expressing the same sentiments about our guitar playing, I thought that with as much talent as there was on this board, we'd be left in the dust on this one.  Hey, we still may be!!

OK, THE CONTEST IS OVER, nobody post anything else!  (Just kidding [:)])

They just extended the contest to June 16th.  I think they outta give me and Mark a D10s each and call it a contest since we were the lone contestants!  [:D]  

Thanks for the kind words!  That E piece is something I've been playing with and adding to for years.  There's more to it, maybe I'll video it someday.

I think they should pack two D10's into two gig bags, send one to each of you, then kick the hoodie to the dumpster.

I agree with the first part, but I'll take the hoodie.

I don't perform Hotel California... that would be infringement. I play Motel Colorado... similar, but definitely NOT the same.

I'm not exactly sure where my J58 is... I haven't seen it in quite a while.

Not really a riff. I've tried hard to put together some acoustic riffs but I just can't seem to capture it. I've also queried some of my mates and they don't get it either... so it's not just me.

Oh yeah, that's right, my built in forgeter at work. Still sounded great, why not find that Washburn? I'd take the hoody off your hands.
