    I've just had a flash of inspiration/title - no idea how I'm going to actually manifest it though.

    I have a very rough outline of an idea sketched out on the computer. As is often the case with me, it started with a title. I've just got to start recording guitars now and see where it leads.

    I've got the basic arrangement sorted, including melodies and backing. Now it's a case of tarting it up.

    Hopefully there will be a few entries for this one.

    I did a bit more work on mine today - recorded some guitars, sequenced some vst synths (which is slow and tiresome for me). It's turning out quite different from the original concept.

    I've completed and mixed the tune.

    Now I'm struggling with the picture as usual. I keep having to modify the concept to fit with what I can figure out how to do in Blender 3D. But I'm hoping this is good brain training for an old git like me.

    Sent.  Just a 30 second thing, kind of like a splash when a program opens, I think....

    Whoever called it "rush hour" should not be allowed to name anything else.

    Slow but steady progress with mine - bass is down and I recorded some more guitar today. I've got a couple of little lines to work out / record and then mix the thing.

    Sent one in, tenuous link to the brief as always, basically singing the word fretboard over the top of a couple of tracks of guitar.

    I have a track and a basic mix. :)

    Now, how long have I got to give it a final spit and polish?

    Mine turned out nothing like my original idea (as ever) - it's kind of like something from an HBO mini-series, or something?
