Thank you, Brian! Thanks to everyone for your excellent participation! A special thank-you to JoLa for sorting out who’s new and checking totals! I apologize for the lateness (really for not letting anyone know—I had it fixed in my head that the Challenge was next weekend).
It was good to see 57 people participating this month (read on, there are more than 57 submissions), that’s 2 more than last month’s already fine 55 submissions.
There were 5 new Challenge participants, Dan L., Alan K., Wayne O., Jeff Davis and Clarke! Welcome to all of you! (I’m sorry if I missed posting anyone’s video, please let me know as soon as you can, thanks!)
Cloughie (Brian) participated twice, once with Sunjamr and his neighbor, and once as a solo performer.
Dave Teeter has two separate pieces in two different places. Since the consolidation is running late anyway, I decided to include both right where they were. This might be a good place to mention that I start with the first submission chronologically and work my way to the last.
I posted both of Wayne’s songs together, with his first one (otherwise they would have been first and third).
A couple other people had more than one submission. I included all of them.
Wayne O “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”
Craig S “Clem’s Dead Finally”
Dieter (see Dieter’s submission for a James Burton video)
John H (John Hanau and David Tod Hanau, the Hanaucasters), “Tele Rock”

It’s my pleasure, Don. Thank YOU for putting it all together! 🙂

That’s definitely my pleasure. Even though I can’t watch every video while compiling, I get a head start finding out what’s here. The singing this time is out of this world.

Hey Don, many thanks for doing this. If you get bogged down on doing this, let us know. I or someone will most likely pitch in and cover you.
when you sing from the heart, it requires only a guitar. M. Shihab Uddin
Playing music on the guitar is like sculpturing your soul with musical notes. 🙂 6 stringerPete
The melody of the notes is what expresses the art of music . 🙂 6stringerPete
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. 🙂 Pete

Thank you Pete! When I realized it was this week and not next, I felt a little panicked, but it worked out okay.
It’s good to know you’re there and would help out, but that wasn’t the problem. If I do foresee a problem, I’ll give you as much advance notice as possible.
