    Sometimes I frighten myself with the stuff I find buried inside my computer. This morning I found this lurking in the jam tracks section, in a folder all by itself. So I grabbed it and did some time augmentation on it and present it to you. The title I found on it was Happy Blues In E, so I kept it and just made it a little bit longer than the 4 minutes it was before. There is over 12 minutes, so please feel free to stretch out on this one.

    Sounds like a real challenging one, I'll give it a shot (apologies in advance).
    -- RECORDING --
    That was fun!
    Out at 2:00

    Um, my par t6is missing.. I see it in S1 but it didn't get included in the mixdown...
    Hmmm... Let me try that again...


    Ok, I guess I'm gonna need help. Maybe from @PapaRaptor

    Here's what I'm seeing... 2020-09-12_10-41-37.png

    If you did a Bounce to Another Track or did a Mixdown Selection of the track, it will mute the source track.
    There is an unmute option in the Event sub-menu, so you don't have to undo anything you may have done after you Bounce/Mixdown.

    This track is somewhat of a challenge (at least for my fumble fingers). You guys have all done such great jobs tackling it, but E Major is not one of my favorite keys to play in.
    Nonetheless, I'll grab a bit of it....

    Man, I think my hearing is going away. I had a tough time finding a sound I liked. I thought I would try my Ibanez jazz box... It seems no matter what I play, every guitar sounds the same.

    Anyhow, I'm in for a minute from about 3:54 through about 4:54 or so.

    ***RECORDING***

    I added a little happiness to the track from 7:47 - 8:44. Just can't get myself away from the tele. I might have to post up a blues rocker sometime and bring back the old TZ for one more go round:eek:.


    Happy E-MS-Mrv-EW-PR-CB-RT-TZ

    @Caboburt

    After recording and exporting, I always preview the track in iTunes.

    I get my "exact" start and end times from there.

    Then I upload to DropBox. :)
