Thank you, Brian! Thank you as always, JoLa, for all of the help with these. If this is flawless, it’s thanks to you. Thanks to everyone for your participation!
This was a popular Challenge! The new record of 87 people posting this weekend is a big jump from the 50 people posting in the September Challenge. That’s 10 more than the last record of 77—you get a lot to like!
Welcome to this month’s new Challenge participants Brent O., Bill P., Mark M., Michael L., Mauricio L., Ian N., Chris M., Livio Giuseppe M. and Dave M., you’re all sounding great from Day 1! I’m looking forward to hearing your next posts. Welcome back to all the people on their second and third challenges! If you’re into building your skills, you’re in the right place! Welcome back to Robotman (after 4 years), David Todd (after about a year and a half) and mkeef (about 2 years)! Welcome! Welcome back!!
To all new participants, in addition to “welcome,” if you would like to use the messages, please first send a friend request to the people you want to communicate with.
With some regrets, I’m actually following the rules this month: One video per person (I tried to remember to note behind the submission that there were others). I hope the people who posted such great pieces will keep on posting, but move them to the Showcase Your Playing page.
Also new this month (did it break the internet?), all the posts are on one page. If I find this is dragging when it opens, I’m going to break it into four pages.
Next month there will be something new again, something I’ve been planning, but I haven’t remembered. Putting it here might help to remind me. I’ll add the lesson numbers—that makes so much sense, I’m sorry it wasn’t part of my routine all along.
I’m sorry if I missed any new participants or if I missed posting anyone’s video or any information I should add, please let me know, thanks!

Wow, Don, you broke the internet!
Just kidding, I think it worked just fine – at least for me. It took less than a minute for all the previews to load up. It’s pretty cool to have them all on one post 🙂 And yeah, we have hit quite a record this month! 😃
Thank you for putting all this together despite your busy schedule, we appreciate you!

Hi JoLa, I wanted to be sure, so I waited a couple days (on the serious side, I was busy at work, I’m getting a break today). It does look like it’s holding together. You know I’m happy to do this, it’s my way of participating. Thank you for all the help you’ve given me!

Seems to be working fine, Don & JoLa. No internet caving in on me. Thanks to both of you for compiling this epic assembly of contributions. Phantastic playing everywhere. I wish I could comment to each single one of you, but if I would do that, I would probably be late for the next challenge. Again…

Hey Kevin, thanks for your comment! It really is my pleasure to do this.
Sunjamr Steve started a post about how to manage the huge number of posts (you may have already seen it and even commented there; I just skimmed it for now).
