   The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting long. Thats a sign that means you should play us a song! It is time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread. Time to share your musical talents with your peers. We're all here. So let us hear you. Any instrument. Any skill level.

   Sleazy  My buddy came over again this week and we learned and rocked out to another punk song, by the Exploited, I Believe In Anarchy

   TheRealBuddha  I'm having connectivity issues, but should be able to post this:  Pink Floyd Another Brick in the Wall (EH #1, #3, #4; J B & K, TB #2, #5, & P)  That should be a fun one to listen to. I recall it taking us some time but being a fun one to record. I do believe that was a direct COF request.

   Sleazy  I was playing cards with my son and a couple of his friends last night as they needed another player, and some other friends of theirs showed up here all drunk. We finished the card game, and one of those kids I don't know asked if that was my drums in there, so I said you want to hear some guitar? He says sure, so I went in the next room here and turned that half stack on and started jamming this tune and those kids came running in there and threw money at me and just going crazy. They were saying 'holy fuck! You're a Rock Star!' and asking what band I was in. They were all surrounding me wanting to shake my hand like I am Jimi Hendrix or something

   MasterSuppressionTechnique  Gemini II  I got around to it. 🎧🎸🎶

   Hmm... I know there's something important tonight... What is it? Oh, wait, it's time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! That's right, it's time to come share some music that you've created and time to come rock out to the music created by your peers!

   TheRealBuddha  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started.

We actually have been working on something new, but it is not yet ready. There's some tweaking that needs to be done and it is not an easy piece to record properly. So, that's in the pipeline but not yet ready. I hope you too have something you're working on. In fact, I hope you have something that's prepared to share tonight!  What I've chosen to do is reach way back into the dark days of the thread and dig up a song I've not shared in a while. As I recall, @Sleazy sang along with this one when we first shared it, but they didn't record themselves singing along. They were wooing a woman, as I recall.Journey - Lights (B #1 & B; J K; TB #2 & P)  It's a pretty good song. You have Biff on rhythm and bass. J fills in on keys. I did the lead and the percussion. (That's what all the weirdness in the file name conveys.)  Enjoy and rock on, goats! Rock on!

   Sleazy  My friend Chris came over to jam out some music again earlier this week. We were trying to decide what song to learn and play when I said, lets just make up a song, lets make a punk rock song. So, that's what we did.  Here is our brand new original song, Guess I'm Going Back To Her Now

   While Chris was here the other night we also learned and played a Ramones song, Blitzkrieg Bop

   Hmm... Yup, it's Friday. There seems to be a Friday every week! Well, you know what that means. It means that this is the time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! All listeners/players welcome. Come share with your peers!

   TheRealBuddha  Hello and welcome to another FNGT! Like normal, we'll get you started on our musical journey!  I almost have something new to share, though I will not be here next week. So, I dug something out of the VERY deep archives for you.  Van Halen - I'm The One (B #2; TB #1, B, & P)  Rock on, goats! Rock on!

   MasterSuppressionTechnique  Gemini III  Been a bit busy for posting, but I have been recording. This one was a stylistic request... from a pretty girl.

   Sleazy  My buddy Chris stopped by for an hour this week before he left town for the rest of the week and we jammed a loud guitar version of I came here to party!

   The work week is over, summer is done, but that doesn't mean that we can't have fun. It is the Friday Night Guitar Thread. Time to take your guitar out of the closet, dust it off and play it. Music is for sharing, so let us hear your musical talent. Any skill level. Any instrument. All are welcome

   MasterSuppressionTechnique  Islet

   TheRealBuddha  I think I'm going to sort of skip this one and spend some time offline (with the missus). She wants to have some chatter with me. Specifically, she wants me to spend some time with her checking her list. Her goal is to replace her daily driver with something else and she's been after me to sit down with her and review her list.  So, I'm going to do that. I may be back later. I may check in on the thread from time to time. Both are possible, perhaps even likely.  I have nothing new, but I have something you haven't heard in a long while - perhaps not since I first shared it... I even have the text from when I originally shared it. It is as follows: Joe Walsh - Rocky Mountain Way (B #2, J K, TB #1 && Guests on Percussion Sax and Bass)   Enjoy and thanks to @Sleazy for opening the thread.

   Sleazy  Hello everybody, my buddy Christopher stopped by earlier this week and we learned and jammed out this Ramoanes song, Punk Rock Girlfriend

   MasterSuppressionTechnique  Well, I only had time for one try... but I tried to play along. I can't say that I improved it. Maybe next time.

   Sleazy  Here is my buddy and I jamming out to a Nirvana tune, About A Girl

   popticalillusion  I got a few archives finished up. There are 2 weeks left to do, plus this week when it's closed out.  The doctors diagnosed me with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, which is really no surprise to me at all.  I'm still going to put some recordings together when I can and have fun!  I don't have anything myself this week, but I'd like to share a new song written by my cousin. He writes Christian Music and is also a pastor at his church. Breakthrough - Written by Graham Siemon, Jordan Craig, Zach Silk, and Travis Wysocki.

   It's a little early, but I need to strike while the iron is hot (that is my ISP is cooperating). So, it's time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! You know what to do because you've seen this all before. We do it every weekend!

   MasterSuppressionTechnique   Friday Afternoon Sunshine Jam  Have a great weekend, everyone.

   Sleazy   I been sick all week. So here is a song from when Chris and I were at Verles a couple weeks ago, On the Road Again

   TheRealBuddha  Hello and welcome to another Friday Night Guitar Thread! Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started.  I don't have any news and @Sleazy is out of commission for a while. So, I'll grab something from the archives.  Ladies and gentlemen, presenting The Biff and TheBuddha Band, covering Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses!  That's Biff covering the bass and doing Izzy's bits, while I take care of percussion and Slash's bits.

 Rock on, goats! Rock on!

   It is the last Friday of this Summer and you know what that means! It is time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread. It's time to rock out! Everybody is welcome. Any skill level, any instrument. Share a tune with us. Come listen. Just get in here!

  TheRealBuddha have something from the archives that I haven't shared but once - that I can think of. This was originally recorded for COF (I'm pretty sure) who liked the song. I believe he was actually after a CCR song, but ended up with me recording this John Foggerty piece: (The Old Man Down The Road, of course.)  I have the shittiest connection and I'm hopeful that this makes it through. My bandwidth should improve later, but it may not and I may get distracted by then. Someone called me like 20 minutes ago and asked if I was home and free, I said I was home but not necessarily free. My bandwidth will make that determination.

  Sleazy  Last weekend my buddy Chris came over and we went out to the studio and plugged in to the amplifiers and turned them up and rocked the fucking place.  Here we are playing the Ramones classic I wanna be sedated

   Here is my buddy and I jamming out to American Idiot by Green Day

   After those tunes we got all drunk and were just jamming some blues riff when some words came to Chris, I got a woman

   You know what day of the week it is. I ain't gotta tell you! So, with that in mind, it's time for the weekly guitar thread! Come join in on the fun. Come share in the music. Better still, come share your music with your peers!

   Sleazy  I was visiting my buddy Verle last night when my other buddy Chris texted me asking if I wanted to jam. I said I am at Verle's and he said he will bring two guitars and be right over.

Here we are playing our song Fireside

   TheRealBuddha  Hello and welcome to another Friday Night Guitar Thread! Like normal, we'll get you started...  So, this is actually a track that has been in the making for a long time. I wanted to show that Malmsteen isn't the only one. Well, that and I wanted to thrash. That means we pulled out all the stops. A Scalloped Neck And A Bag Of Tricks (the usual suspects)

   No, those aren't real vocals. They're a chorus setting on a fancy keyboard with like a zillion voices. I do not actually have a choir available, at least not easily. Though, I could probably call in a couple of favors and have access to one.  Anyhow, that's a scalloped neck and a bag of tricks. You'll hear almost everything (including the tremolo and pretty much eight fingers tapping) and nothing. For as complicated as it sounds, it's musically pretty simple. The techniques are hard, but we stay in our lane as far as keys and key changes. This makes it easier for the casual listener and nobody likes jazz.  Rock on, Goats! Rock on!

    MasterSuppresionTechnique  I call this one "Glass in the Sand"  Slightly Stoopid has really dropped off in quality and they sang an autoparts commercial at the last show I saw them play at. Pretty disappointing.  So... now if I want to hear the new shit, I gotta make it up, myself.

   It is time for the long Holiday Weekend Version of the Friday Night Guitar Thread. Grab a guitar and play some happy barbequing and drinking music! Make us want to get up and dance! Everybody is welcome! Any skill level, any instrument! Come on in here! Lets get this party started!

   TheRealBuddha  You posted this to 'whatever'...  I don't have enough bandwidth to fix it.  Here's a track from long ago:

   MasterSuppresionTechnique  Have a great labor day weekend, everybody.  My Song!

   I do it all. I just like to jam loud when no one is around.  Here is before the guitars...  I usually just use a looper.

   Sleazy  The other night my buddy Chris came over and we jammed out and had a few beers. Here is the Dead Kennedys Police Van

   Hall_of_Cost  Spacey jams

   Sleazy  We did one more thing I think I dont think he said any words and I dont know what it was, all he sang was oooooh ooooooh ooooooh

   Last week I shared a version of my friend Chris and I playing the Misfits song Where Eagles Dare, and when Chris came over this week he said he thinks we can do it better, so we played it again, this time with drums! LoL Eagles Dare

   Tonight marks the 6th year anniversary for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! Damned right, we've done this for a long time! In fact, it has been a very long time! Come join us in celebrating. Come share a track. Come sing us a song!

   TheRealBuddha  So, what can I say?  On August 20th, 2017, I asked a simple question on Voat - in the guitar sub. I asked, "Is this where we share our work?" Then, I asked another question, something about if we should do this on a regular basis. It was agreed that we should, though it'd be a while longer before it became a truly weekly event.  We've now surpsassed the 6 year mark. I can't think of any other recurring grassroots event that has gone on this long. It is not without bias that I say this is an excellent thing.  We've held our Friday Night Guitar Thread on various sites over the years. Each time we're evicted, we regroup and find each other again. We've had births and deaths along the way. We've had marriages and seen our children grow into adults. We've done all this while ensuring the thread gets posted every single week - without fail. 

   It is in that spirit that I decided to play one of the hardest classical pieces I know. It's a Paco de Lucia arrangement, a celebration of life itself.  Zapateado (TB)

   Speaking of weddings, we can thank the missus for mixing and recording that. Without her, it'd sound much worse.  So, celebrate the six years we've had and let's look forward to another year.  Rock on, Goats! Rock on!

   Hall_of_Cost  When I got out of the joint, I was happy to see voat was still bleating. I noticed no guitar thread, but then you came back! And yeah I'm usually a bit late but I still appreciate this and I love how long we've been checking out each other's tunes. Did I [try to show my pathetic attempt or] play Layla on my first share? Or maybe I shared this: Which I was a raging drunk back then and Buddha asked what I played that song on. I told him it was my epiphone les paul special II through a peavey rage all knobs at 10. And he replied something like, "Sounds like it!" Lmao! I still get a kick out of that

   ChunkyChicken  Not much but it's more than I've done in years. Been lurking for awhile so I guess I should post more which I guess means I need to put my rig back together. Always love what folks post. There's no place like G28

   CamelsMiller  Hiya, been a while. I came across me playing a bass trying to write a riff. Don't believe I've shared this before.

   And I'll add one I don't believe I shared before

   Sleazy  This week my buddy Chris came by, and started rapping, so I played a beat and recorded this nonsense... I'm not a rapper, man

   MasterSuppressionTechnique  I call this one, "The Little Club".

   Sleazy  Then we played some punk rock, the Misfits, Where Eagles Dare

   Hall_of_Cost  Happy anniversary goats! Here's a couple of videos of me messing with my (new to me) amp the night I brought it home. Ome video is blind melon deserted intro, the other is some riffs I'm hoping to string into a song for Space Weapon a little project I'm doing to learn some basic recording stuff and I just like concept albums and after I heard Time by ELO, I always wanted to make my own concept album. I'd heard other concept albums like from pink Floyd and The Kinks, even Lord Huron. Check out Time though it's an interesting and underrated album. Also a little thin lizzy dicking around at the end of that one.  Post 1  Post 2

   It's Friday night and my ISP sucks. So, it's close enough! I'm going to start the thread a little early, 'cause I know I'm connected! So, come rock out with your online buddies and share some music you made!

   TheRealBuddha  Hello and welcome to another Friday Night Guitar thread. Like normal, we'll go ahead and get you started.  This week, we have something new. Imagine that! It's not a song all of you will know - but you should know it. It's a great song!  Buckcherry - Crazy Bitch (B #1 & B; TB # 2 & P)  If you're unfamiliar with the song, look up the original on YouTube. Also, you should hear Biff sing this song. It cracks me up, but she belts it out and actually does a good job at it. No, she was unwilling to record a vocal track to add into the mix. I asked...  Rock on, Goats! Rock on!

   Sleazy  I just got home. The other day Chris came by and we jammed out for a while, he had to check out the new to me, half stack speaker cabinet a friend gave to me not too long ago. I had a 1959 ten watt tube amp head sitting on a shelf doing nothing so that was perfect.  Now you can hear how it sounds a little bit, as Chris found these lyrics on the music stand written in female handwriting and we made a song to sing them to. Walking Around

   Here is an original composition by me.

   Oh yeah, the last time I visited Verle one of his friends had a guitar and we played, Throw The jew Down The Well!

   webofslime  Right-Handed Lightning Whelk  My brother is getting older and is having all kinds of feelings about his legacy and wants to make an "Outlaw" country album, so I started trying to find "my sound" for it.

   California Coi Fish  Thanks for checking it out. Have a good week.

   The weeks sure seem to fly by so very quickly in the summer time. It is Friday again already! Welcome to the Friday Night Guitar Thread. This is where we want to hear your musical ability. Grab a musical instrument and a cell phone and play us a song! We're not picky! We just want to hear some music

   Sleazy  I was home alone with my girlfriend last night so I decided to serenade her with A little help from my friends

   TheRealBuddha  Here, have some Avenged Sevenfold, a song chosen by Biff (again): Nightmare   Man, I fucking hate my ISP

   It is the Friday Night Guitar Thread. Can't celebrate live unless you're alive. I'm at a friend's waiting with him for his mom to die. Share some music with us and take our minds off of life for a moment...

   Sleazy  Throw the jew down the well

   TheRealBuddha  I don't know why it's in /whatever, but it is.  I specifically asked @Sleazy to open this one as I kinda have a guest.  So, with that in mind, have a song that Biff picked and was recorded a while ago... Halestorm Apocalyptic  I'll check in as time allows.

   Hall_of_Cost  I haven't written any new songs for my space rock opera but I still record some- I just practice and try to get creative.  I recently picked up some old tape recorders, a tascam Porta 02 mkII. Lol. And a yamaha mt1x that has a common problem with the mechanism I might take it to get repaired. I'm just trying to get a hang of the physical process and see how it is. Anyway, I am trying to come up with a couple of songs from the bad guy's perspective. This 30 second clip is from one of those sessions and I might work more at it to turn into a song for the bad guy. This Weapon

   The person who was going to open the thread has gone missing. That's fine. I've got it! Come join the FNGT and jam out!

   TheRealBuddha  For expediency's sake... Have some AC/DC!

   Sleazy  My singing sucks. I tried singing this song on my porch for my woman and I recorded it and it sounded like shit. So I tried it again, only this time, I sang it in falsetto. LoL It's horrible. I am warning you. It doesnt even sound like me singing. American Music

   popticalillusion  I have another remixed song where I added the vocal track using the AI tool to separate it from the originally released recording. I also did some more work to improve the other tracks I got from Guitar Pro and my guitar tracks that I had added to the song. AC/DC Dirty Deeds.

   Hall_of_Costs  Her Majesty  PM me if you want to join a bandlab band - no obligation. It'll be awesome!

   drhitler  i should post more often  anyway, here is a finger picking rendition of a popular pop song, guess the song

   sguevar  Hello guys, I am sorry, I have been off for so long, house, daughter, church, work. In all very busy.  I know it is late but here is one recording I just did, Amazing Grace in Spanish. Hope you like it, God bless!

   Hmm... Did you check a calendar today? If so, do you know that it's Friday? If you know that it's Friday, you should also know that it's time for the Friday Night Guitar Thread! It's time to rock out with your peers!

   TheRealBuddha  How about a blast from the past? Below is the exact submission we made back in the day...  Once again, I have no idea how long I'll be with you tonight. It kinda depends on how my granddaughter is doing and how I am doing. I have a baby!  This week, be prepared to have your socks knocked off as The EH & TB Band cover RHCP's Soul To Squeeze!  If you listen carefully, you'll hear EH doing the rhythm (that's the first guitar you'll hear) and then later doing a second backing track where she also covers part of the lead. This is not an easy song to learn and she learned it with remarkable speed.  "I started to learn it on Sunday. It didn't even take many hours!"  Yeah, yeah... Go ahead and just ignore the guy that covered the lead and also covered one of the greatest bassists on the planet. Just give her her damned roses and I'll type on her behalf. It's okay, I'm used to it! ;-)  This is my guitar student in whom I am well pleased. Yes, yes I am.  Rock on, goats. Rock on!

   Sleazy  The other night my woman was plucking at the banjo here and I told her I was going to record what she was playing for the FNGT!  So I played along with all the instruments I could find laying around the dining room table!  Lets Play Land Shark

   My woman found this little electric kids piano that has music box sound when you play it. What the Fuck, Man?

   popticalillusion  I went back to my very first song and used an AI tool from Bandlabs to extract the vocals, bass, and drums from the original recording. I added the tracks to my guitar recording and then done some work syncing the tracks and improving the way they sound. Stone Temple Pilots Plush from the Core release.

   I would like to cordially welcome you all to another edition of the Friday Night Guitar Thread. It is time to create a mad racket! A cacophony of hoots, cackles, and wails. And we are inviting you to join in the fun. Make some noise and share it with the people. Any skill level. Any instrument.

   Sleazy  Here is a blast from the past from old VOAT. Several of us back in the days of old came up with a hundred and some ways to 50 Ways To Kill Your Lover, improve upon that song.

  Hello everyone. Here is my buddy Verle singing something or other She Drove Me Crazy
