Ok. Not my best recording, but here's a final revision. Hope you all like it.

Tom - well done. I think we made it a difficult piece, which is good for learning. I will record my take later in the week. Still trying to get my grip on Novelette.
Tom, I love it.
I agree with Ed, it is a little difficult but good learning piece with charming melody.
I'll record mine later too.
I also agree with you all. I think this turned out great. And that we should place a higher priority on the lessons, which for me, is the dreaded improvisation exercises.....
My advice to anyone participating in these Games: Don't turn it into a science project.
I think the principle difficulty (learning objective) we encounter in these games should be composition (very basic, figuring out note additions that sound right), with a secondary goal of simplicity. I've discarded many "nice sounding note combinations" I've generated in MuseScore, because they require a six-finger guitar player or were just too dang hard to play (after 4-5 tries). Using the guitar to develop these game inputs may still be the best approach after all (although MuseScore is a lot more fun
I prefer to defer the difficult aspects to the lessons we're (also) working on.
