    Here's this weeks track and I also just realized until I was creating this thread, we hit the 300th track + I could add the other tracks that weren't numbered.
    It's hard to believe this has been going on since 2013. A lot of players had come and gone but the faithful players are @Mjark and @udoering from the beginning . I also can't forget from the start @HoodieMcFoodie and @Alan L Cole @fendrguitplayr @estreet @NWinther @Raimonds that joined in the mid-decade, and the regulars that joined in the last few years and recently, thanks to all for participating, and has been a pleasure listening to you all play.

    Yes, jubilee! This thing has become a part of my life, and if it ever ends, I will be missing it. Every saturday I wake up looking forward on the new track. Thank you so much Mike for keeping this running. Well, here is my track, a little noodling, recorded as a one shot after one play through.

    @Alan L Cole : just sweet, and a decent use of the tremolo lever!
    @ghostchord : like your theme and it´s variations. In my opinion, you could have waved the second guitar. Sometimes less is more.

    Thanks for all the tracks Mike :) It has been quite fun! Here is my little thing, my wrist is trying to kill me so it is quite subdued and somewhat shaky....have not played much in the last month to give the wrist some time off.

    @Alan L Cole - Your tone goes very well and love the sustaining notes and the vibrato .Lovely track.
    @ghostchord - Nice tone and with a theme all through and I like the two guitars intertwining . Nicely played.
    @udoering - You've stepped up the pitch, I think it gives more of an upbeat feel . Love the tone and phrasing, and far from noodling in my opinion sounds structured and emotive.
    @Raimonds - Very cool saturated tone, it complements the track very nicely. Love the fast runs and tension in your playing .Very nice track.
    @NWinther - Hopefully your wrist gets better, Niels. Lovely version with a beautiful soft touch with the swells and a sweet dynamic tone.

    What a beautiful track!

    I'm relatively recent here and just want to say this is great thing you have been doing here. Like a year ago, I didn't think playing much even 'half publicly'. Then one day thought, heck let's give it at least one try..

    Reception here, hearing talented people playing, listening different approaches, tryin different music styles, trying to learn every day..

    I mean, especially in today's world, there are good and then there are bad days. And for sure not going to nail it every day, or being always better. But every day I'm able to play guitar, is a good day. It's something to look for. What I really try to say, it's the best medicine. And what you're doing here, is really important.

    Today was I was able to play all my three guitars, so it's a very good day. And really tried to do justice for the special occasion. :)
