Strymon Lex is a good sounding Leslie emulator, I think. One nice function is switching between fast and slow speeds with a gradual acceleration / deacceleration like the motor on a rotary device.

Would it be cheating to take the test again? I got 30 out of 32, but I was guessing on many samples. I might do better or worse with another run at it.

G# with a feel stop. I use my 7th string raise a lot, probably more than the 1st string. Grumbling rather than whining, if you will.

Nice, you could get away with that as long as it didn't clash with the vocal line. Among the 1000 songs is Satin Doll. Duke, Hank, it's all music.

Jim R., that chord voiced 1-2-3-5 and its inversions has been referred to as the Steely Dan or Mu chord; I tend to think of it as the Valdy chord as it is a musical favourite of one of our old BC folk ...
