Description
I was fiddling around in Open D tuning and this little reel was the result. When I read about the 30 second Stinger Challenge I decided it could possibly fit the bill. But who knows? Will be very interested to see what other MJ'ers come up with.

By the way, it is February 15 in Melbourne (1.1.5 pm). So I posted.

Regards,

Peter

Very nice. Love the guitar sound. Sounds like stringer music from one of our NPR broadcasts here in the states.

Signing off
Hi Andrew, thanks for having a listen. 30 s doesn't tax the mind too much :-) I did think it sounded like a sign-off tune hence the creation of the mythical 3ME - Melbourne. Regards, Peter.

sign off
this works quite well as a program sign off - and it probably would work well between program sections as well

nicely done!

thanks

Aussie accent
Hi Adam, yeah the funny thing was I needed to concentrate to not add an American accent to the sign off (me being an Australian and all) but the sign off's I vaguely remembered all seemed to have American accents :-) Take care, Peter.

Hi Bud. I'm glad you enjoyed this (since you proposed the Challenge). Wasn't really sure what was required but I do feel it says what it has to say within the time limit. Good idea, Peter.

Hi Billy. Thanks for having a listen. The guitar is one that I made and it has a beautiful rich tone but it has taken me a while to get a handle on how to record it effectively. Warm regards, Peter.

Hi Steve. Funnily enough Melbourne has had a pretty lousy summer! Probably not quite a cold as your winter :-) but not the 35 Celsius (plus) degree days we often get. Thanks for having a listen. I appreciate your kind words. Take care, Peter.

Hi Eddie. Open tunings are great fun. And the best part is that all you need to do is strum the strings to get a chord - no fingers attached. Yes, that is my voice - altered beyond all recognition :-) Thanks for dropping by. Regards, Peter.

Just fiddling around :-)
Hey Bob, thanks for dropping by. I do a lot of fiddling around on the guitar. Every now and again I translate it into something more tangible, but more often than not it is gone the next day. I must be more systematic, but I do find just playing around very relaxing. Regards, Peter.

Your guitar picking always makes the hair on my arms stand up, and I tingle... Love it! Would love to hear you punch out a whole tune based on this! Cool DJ in there too! You could work and make extra money of you needed too. You have a DJ voice! Very cool man!

Hey BlueAttitude, thanks for having a listen to my attempt at 30s of fame. I will probably expand this out at some point but I have a different acoustic track lined up for the two-track challenge (post date March 1). Welcome to MJ. It is a great community. I have only been a member since October last year but people are very supportive, especially if you take the time to listen a lot and learn, as you are obviously doing. Take care, Peter.
