We need a whip crackin' emoticon. :|

Boy oh boy, did I ever pick a bad week for a deadline. My wife got her position eliminated. No surprise. Saw it coming. Not doing a whole lot of playing last few days. Being supportive and such. Needless to say, I won't be spending hours at my PC splicing together songs for the next couple of days. She is going necklace making with a neighbor in a bit, so I'll be able to put the final touches on mine. Or replace it. Still undecided. :lol:

I just remembered something rather important. The exteemed mr Vic Lewis had to withdraw from this event, leaving team 2 without a part 1. If anyone else wants to jump in, now's the time. Else, maybe someone has a take or something they did differently than what they submitted earlier and wants to have another chance at it????

Or, if no one else jumps in at the last moment, perhaps Dan would care to do a part 1 for team 2? (Roy's feeble attemot at volunteering someone else. :lol: )

Sorry about the mix up. Been a rather odd week here. I need to go look at who has contacted me and such, but it looks like I have 3 of 4 parts submitted for each team. Rob and whoever replaces Vic are the lone two. I got the team one loosley put together and panned and so far, so good. 8) Time to go mess with Team 2's file now. Should be good as well.

Oh boy, this is some good stuff I'm hearing. Both teams and everyone.

I do have to admit that I am holding my head pretty low at what I did. I still have time to change it. :lol:

New part is in the mail Roy.

Since I was sitting in for Vic, I decided to get the Tele out in honor of the old timer. :P

Minute-Man Dan! It was quick. It was good. Really good. Already installed and loaded. :) Thanks, Dan!

Team 2 is locked and loaded. Just gotta listen to itthrough the headphones and make panning and volume tweaks. Team 1 is in the same boat, except for one part by Rob.

I was the only one who took it really clean, low and slow. It's a pretty good lead in to Al's part. It was tought to do. If I wasn't passing through a note, I had to put something on it to keep from sounding flat. Now I wish I had done something with a bit more bite. That still might happen. I have a day left. LOL

Only the one slot left to get done. We'll give him a bit more time. Computers, modems, routers, etc, can get hosed leaving one in no-mans land for a few days. :)

IN the mean time, I'm just mixing away and digging what I hear.....after my part ends, of course. :lol:

I pm'd Rob, & this is what he said:
I'm really really sorry about this - I have been away a lot and have had literally no time the last week or so. I'm just about to head away again for another 6 days within the next half hour too. If you can wait that long, I'll sort out my submission on Monday evening . . .

Again, I really apologise - things have been a lot more hectic than I envisaged.

Rob

Not sure if you want to wait that long Roy, but it's your show, so whatever you decide is fine.

How cool is Dan, stepping in at a moment's notice like that? In your idiom, way to go, man! So sorry I had to drop out...but apparently, I've torn a muscle in my shoulder. It's been 2-3 weeks since I last picked up a guitar - saw the doc today, and he said, "No unnecessary strain on that shoulder whatsoever for the next 3-4 weeks - the more you use it, the longer your recovery time'll be."

So I'm hoping, 2-3 weeks - but it's bloody murder not even being able to pick a guitar up. They're sitting there, staring at me, sad faces, asking, "what have we done wrong?" - I'm trying to convince them it's NOT their fault, and I still love 'em! Worse than having to talk the Mrs round when you've done somehing you shouldn't have done.....at least she'll shout at me!

Sad, depressed - think I'm going to have to write a few blues songs for when I can play again.

Bear with me if I'm a little cranky over the next couple of weeks.......

:cry: :cry: :cry:

Sorry to hear about your shoulder Vic. I hope it gets back in shape soon.

Do you know what you did to cause the injury.... were you windmilling like Townshend again? :)

Alllllrighty then! We're done. All submitted as of this morning and I just got done putting team 1's mp3 together. Both are loaded.

A big thanks to everyone who contributed and made this a really simple and pleasurable experience. I will surely jump in and host others in the future as needed. And of course, a big gigantic thanks to DanT for a very quick recording of part 1 for team 2 as Vic fell off injured - again ( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ) - and for helping to keep this going for with communications and reminders, etc.

Team 1: http://soundclick.com/share?songid=9100538

Team 2: http://soundclick.com/share?songid=9100495

I'll put out an announcement on Hear Here.
