Smoke on the Water huh?  Well - I'm hoping that my life settles down a little bit the second half of this month, so I'll see what I can do. It's a bit out of my wheelhouse, but that's what makes this game fun.  Sure.  I'll give it a shot.

I didn't get a chance to listen to your contribution yet, Neophytte, but I'm eager to hear it. I like your whole approach and style.

Re: NOVEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHALLENGE THEME

Oh Ill defiantly do Stepping stone, thats a fun one to get crazy on, (Zurf we need that crazy bass line)
then Proud Mary, and really thinking of the  Five Finger Death Punch) version of House of the rising sun.  If I have time, Gloria for sure.  just need to re-listen to the doors a few times.

Zen guitar is nothing more than playing the song we’re all born with inside - The one that makes us human.

Thanks - my voice was a bit off, as I was coming down with a cold, and didn't know it at the time ... I may re-do it now that I'm on the mend smile

Re: NOVEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHALLENGE THEME

neophytte ........  well done on ~To Her Door~ .... I have to confess I didn't know and had never heard of this song before, so after listening to your cover I went and listened to the original. 
neophytte ........ yes that`s  the Elvira song.

easybeat ........ challenge accepted, I will give ~Stepping Stone~ ago (or attempt to lol).  Gee I had to go listen to it online as I couldn't remember  it at all! 
easybeat ............ I challenge you to ~A Horse With No Name~ .

beamer ........ awesome, looking forward to what you do with those songs.

Re: NOVEMBER 2017 FSOTM - CHALLENGE THEME

Bass line for Stepping Stone from The Monkees.  OK.  I haven't played bass in a long while, but I've been wanting to get back into it. Beamer, are you suggesting a cross-country team up?  I use Audacity for recording.  Tell me the tempo you want and I'll pull out the hated and evil metronome to see whether I can help.  I'll need to listen to the song on YouTube first, as I don't remember having ever heard it. Probably have, but just don't recall.

I'm planning on using your tutorial on my whatever-it-is pedal to make different noises for Smoke On The Water.

Ha ha!  "Hello Kitty!"  That guitar sounds good. I didn't expect that from the novelty decoration. 

I'd never heard that song before and didn't know what to expect, but I liked it and couldn't tell that you had a cold. The diction was clear and you were on key. You're very good at keeping a steady beat too. That's something I need to work on.  Very nice recording!

The "Hello Kitty" guitar is made by Squire - it doesn't sound too bad, but needs a new set of strings (as the wife never plays it) ...

Thanks for the kind words!!

Loved it! Absolutely nothing like America's version. A total EasyBeat arrangement and it was wicked! Great job!
