It's been a long day, and Duck Duck's ready to unwind in the best way they know how: an impromptu jam session! Can you help them get in the groove?

I mean... it's not really your responsibility. I'm sure they'll be fine on their own. Why don't you just take some time to riff off the backing track and enjoy yourself? And hey, if you happened to make some smooth tunes along the way, that's cool too.

i was in a terrible mood

Fun little game! Pretty good sounding too! And good graphics.


The duck plays the blues, and the graphics are a glitch by itself, and they are very unstable.
It looks like the duck would have taken a lot of drugs, causing those effects to have hypnotic effects on the graphics.
