    Hi BGU!

    I hope all is well with Yinz in this COVID-19 WORLD!!! STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!!

    I have been seeing the BGU "ALL ACCESS" stuff.

    HOWEVER, I really miss the Monthly challenge AND INTERACTION!

    So here is my first "song" ever. - HERE TO STAY. Ignore the vocals - 7:00 am yesterday - and try to see how Griff has taught us/me to play "off the One beat" and "behind the beat" and "mix Major and minor" sounds. Griff is an AMAZING teacher! Blues On!!!

    Beautiful. Love the tone. Get yourself a good microphone Bobby. Nothing wrong with your voice. Well done.

    Yes excellent apart from the vocal being a tad quiet.

    Great job Bobby! I really liked your guitar playing! Your presentation is great. You just need to plug a mic into your 2i2 and open another track! I just bought a 2i2 myself last week to try and figure out PC and Studio One (daw) gear. I’ve been using the iPad and GB for awhile (just our simple lessons and vjr stuff). If I can help, let me know.

    Nice guitar playing and your voice has potential. Sounds like you may have a fair range. Agree with previous comments, get a good mic and record the voice seperate. Sorry don't know how to do that on your gear.

    Thank you Big Mike! I am excited to try to get my voice to catch up to my gitfiddle playing. I will get a mic and start working on it. How are things in your world? Stay safe my friend! Bob
