I didn’t think I’d get a chance to post this weekend as the last of my kids graduated from High School. Had some time tonight, so was listening to some of the posted challenges and felt I had to get one in, especially since I skipped last month. Laid down recording quickly. Few blips and timing could still use some work but here it is. EP307 as learned, Graduation Blues…
Almost forgot to mention this is on a new to me guitar that I picked up this month. Ibanez AF55 Hollowbody. Absolutely love the sound of it.

Guitar sounds great. Has a really nice breaks-up blues tone. Though you did very well on the lesson. Especially liked the sound you got on the insistent repeated strumming near the end.

Well done Doug! Congratulations on the new guitar; the blues are doing so well. I also chose EP 307 this time. I realized that this lesson can be played very well in different bpm; it always sounds good. You proved it.

Lovely sound and feel to the piece
Nice looking guitar, I had an Ibanez once was really well made, changed it as it was on the heavy side and I was more into guitar fairs and trading around at the time anyway.
On topic glad you found the time to contribute it was well worth it.

Sounds great Doug. That’s a great lesson to choose for a blues fan. You inspired me here. I need to learn this as well!

Very well played, and I do love the sound of that new guitar. Very rich tone. I think it might be good for playing some of the jazz lessons on.

Incredible, Doug! The guitar sound is sweet, too. I wish I could put together my responses so quickly at the last minute… I’ve got a long way to go ☺

Nicely done Doug! Those semi hollow body Ibanez’s are great guitars!
