Time for round #30 of the Fretboard Composition Challenge.

Every few months there'll be a composition challenge. It revolves around individuals or groups of forum members composing and recording music.

No prizes for this challenge. It's just for fun, a spur to creating, sharing, discussing music/recording and learning. Plus a way of testing the water with your creations and getting some feedback.

GUIDELINES -THEME
In an attempt to encourage more entries, there isn't a theme for this one. Just compose a tune, or recycle something you've composed previously.
Feel free if you want to create your own theme.
Picture: In addition to the music, try to create your own picture that relates to your selected theme/title. This isn't mandatory.

DATES AND VOTING
Fretboard Challenge #30 starts NOW! - Submission deadline is midnight 30th November 2020

    Give me a break :)  I've still got to finish my cover challenge entry first, but I might run out of time on that one.

    At least I've already done the next SotM backing track.

    ha, I can;t talk. My rate of composing anything is slower than a slow thing walking backwards at the moment. Most of my guitar time will be taken up doing this telecaster project now. Got myself a nice ash body to finish in butterscotch nitro. Oh yes.

    Excellent. It's more than I've got at the moment, which is nothing. I need to get my finger out.

  • Just a heads up. I might have to delay the deadline on this because I'm likely to be away from home for some time, helping to look after my sick mother.

    I might be able to get something done on my laptop, plus I brought my Strat and audio interface with me, but the situation isn't ideal.

    Very sorry to hear that @stratman3142, hope it's a quick recovery situation, not something utterly hideous.

    Thanks. There won't be a recovery as she's 89 with stomach cancer. Also, bed ridden.

    I'm mainly here to support my brother so he can get a break and so that I can order and arrange stuff on my laptop via my phone internet, as they're not computer literate. Carers come in very briefly every day. Nurses visit once or twice a week. Sitters from Macmillan and Palliative Care come in every few days and stay a while, but that's on an ad hoc basis.

    I suppose in theory I could drive back from Stoke On Trent to Exmouth to occasionally visit my wife, arguing that she's in my social bubble. But that's stretching it a bit owing to the distance and I'm worried about the risk of taking Covid back to her, with all the care visitors we're getting here.

    It's not a competition.
