That's strange.  I don't know what the problem might be.  I had to log into GoDaddy today for a business website and didn't have any problem.  Wish I could help, Neil, but there's nothing I can do on your account...

Huh!  Neil gave me the link to the new site, and I checked it out yesterday.  Looking good.  But went to look at it again today and can't get there.  What do you think, Neil?

Let's keep it simple, shall we?  ;D

In the US of A Nov is a month to be Thankful....AND to start the Christmas mad sales! SO...

Write a tune about SOMETHING or SOMEONE you are Thankful for.....that dollar you found on the way to work, the happy puppy at home, the better / worse half.......BUT, and you KNEW there was one, right?  ::)

It must be an Instrumental! NO vocals, either normal or processed. I am one that listens to Instrumental music as much, or more, than vocal, and feel that no vocals can sometimes tell a story better without words getting in the way.

SO, for this one I will post a time limit of 1:00 or longer because I know how hard it can be sometimes.....and that is it, Any style / tempo / key / Time Sig / etc....

Now, for the folks that just can NOT do a straight instrumental track then the exception will be 4 lines, no more, AND they must be a REASONABLE length, OK? No one line running straight thru for 1min!  )(?  :P

OK, that is it. Close date is the 30th of Nov at Midnight where ever you are. Voting Dec 1st thru 4th, winner announcement Dec 5th, then the Dec/Jan TTM ODC is off & running!  ;)

Interesting concept smurf. Should the title of the entry have some bearing on what the artist is being thankful for?

Otherwise the listener might misinterpret the musically representation 😳

I might even try and get my act together and do something for this.
I found a few new freebies that are very atmospheric here:

Neat idea.  I've been working on something as a practice exercise but I can't play it yet.  Maybe I'll have it down enough to record by the end of the month.

I will have a song to enter in the next day or so, just final mixing now. It has been so long though that I have no idea how to go about posting it on the Soundcloud page.
Are there instructions on here somewhere or could someone do it for me?

Hey Bob! How's it hanging?

If you check into the 'Things Only We Should Know' folder near the top of the forum index, inside you will find the TTM Soundcloud login info. That should get you in.
If you are the first entry poster, then please clear out the previos challenge entries......

Ha ha. Cheeky fella. Have u been in the wilderness that long, you haven’t used our soundcloud page before ?😳😆

I didn’t delete the previous months for 3 reasons:
1) I wasn’t aware I needed too
2) not sure if they’ve been archived
3) it’s not in my job description.

Just kidding. I hoesntly didn’t realise that was the protocol.

Great track combobob. A departure from your trademark sound.
