Thank you, Brian! Thanks to everyone for your excellent participation!
There were 43 people responding this month, 9 fewer than last month’s 52. Sunburst (John) submitted 2 videos; Cloughie gave us 3 different videos based on the levels Brian mentioned.
If there were any first-timers, welcome! Everyone I heard sounded great, and I heard more than a few.
Craig, I thought the January Challenge was based on EP280 but the very first submission was your solo cover of Zeppelin’s “Rain Song”/Friends,” because you called it a Challenge submission, I followed your lead and included it (but I put it at the end of part 2). If anyone would care to comment on this procedure, please do.
That leaves Richie B.’s submission first. Even though it was over a week early I included it because I found it in this section and it was based on EP280.
Thank you to Billy for your advice!

As always, Billy, my pleasure! I agree about the great responses, doing this, I get to sample a few along the way, which is another pleasure.

Thanks, Don. I said to my wife that it seemed like fewer members participated in this challenge. I wonder why. It was an easy lesson. Maybe it’s the cold northern hemisphere winter.

My pleasure, Steve!
My lack of participation is mostly because my house guest/boarder is occupying the best playing spaces. I still play every morning, but not as long, not as intently, not as well. But he’ll be leaving at the end of the month and I’ll be back in the good chair in the good spot.

Don, that takes a lot of time to do what you are doing. Nothing goes unappreciated by you. I like it because it gives me a chance to listen to all at one time. Then I do what I like best, drink some sake and make my silly comments for the challenges. 🙂
A big thanks.
Playing music on the guitar is like sculpturing your soul with musical notes. 🙂 6stringer pete
The melody of the notes is what expresses the art of music . 🙂 6 stringer Pete
It really is all about ”melody”. The melody comes from a language from our heart. Our heart is the muscle in music harmony. The melody is the sweetness that it pumps into our musical thoughts on the fretboard. 🙂 6 stringer Pete

Yes, thank you Don for another prompt and efficient summary. Great work. And Pete, your round up is equally appreciated!
