A small Ron M. prize from me 

In honour of Ron, I want to introduce a series of modest give-aways over time. I have a Compas Builder Pro licence key (worth 59 Euros) that I am happy to donate to the forum if we can come up with a suitable competition or reason to reward someone deserving. I am not going to organise a playing challenge but anyone else is welcome to volunteer.

If anyone has anything they would like to offer as a 2nd and 3rd prize (CD, book, strings, accessory), then please let me know.

Here are some ideas for you to vote on (not binding, just to gauge your thoughts).

Of all the options, the challenge is the only one where everybody wins something.

Yeah, I'd love to do a challenge, seeming a little tough to get enough people interested AND on the same page.... I'll see what I can scrounge up for a 2nd or 3rd prize too.....

exactly....compas builder pro sounds too much like WORK ... but I have a collection of trad cejillas ... it's a sort of addiction really.

Great idea, Simon. I think Ron would have liked all those categories... maybe also "best resemblance to a famous flamenco guitarist (wigs allowed)"?

I have a few bits and bobs. Perhaps we should get a collection of donated items reserved for future challenges. Thanks for all the kind offers.

RE: A small Ron M. prize from me (in reply to Escribano

Didn't Ron have a lazy series of videos like .. lazy tango or something?
maybe they could be used as challenge material ..

just wanna hear Ricardo trying to come second .. play perfectly , but leave one of your strings a bit flat ...maybe ....it's probably harder for you to play wrong than play right ....

RE: A small Ron M. prize from me (in reply to Escribano

Challenge wins, right?

1 - Cejilla
2 - Something
3 - Something else
4, 5, 6, etc - nada
last - Compas software

Is this ok? Everyone agrees?


Let's do this!

The compas software as last prize - makes perfect sense
