Okay, I'm trying to really keep on the bandwagon of playing guitar.

So in order to help it, I figured I'd see if anyone was up for a contest of sorts...winner gets a copy of my Cd. (not a great prize but what the heck!)

You remember the show Name that tune right? Well I figure why not start it up here, I'll play fingerstyle versions of songs (they will be pretty well known)...you let me know how many "notes" you can get the song in...first one to get it right gets a point, first one to 10 wins. I will do measures to start because it is more difficult to identify fingerstyle stuff in my opinion.

Kind of a luck/gamble thing because I would only take the first submission, so you kind of have to be online at the right time I guess....but if anyone is interested, then go ahead and post!!

Lowest bid gets the first whack....I'll post the tune on Monday around 3pm EST. with the first guess.

In Space, no one can hear me sing!

Is it Autumn Leaves?

I'll give it a go, Joe. :)

LOL, no it's not Autumn Leaves.

But you have to tell me how many measures you can name that song in...then I play that many measures....and you try to guess the song. So that has to come first!

(Thanks for moving to the right area mods)

Oh, I got ya.
I'll bet it takes me 2 measures.
How much time does the bid winner get to listen before they have to guess?

Sounds great Joe, but I have no clue. Can I phone a friend? :)
Seriously, no idea.
Maybe let anyone who wants to have a go at it?

Sure, you can phone a friend....you are the only one playing LOL.

It's in the "classic rock" genre....I think...

Well, I'll be even lamer at pop than classic rock and no one else is bidding, so the whole song please.
Just kidding...4 bars.
