    That was killer Jack! Your chops and melodic inventiveness always knocks me out. Sweet tone on the Sadowsky; warm archtop sound with clarity.

    Great playing as always Jack. I have a question for you, when you record your youtube clips are you micing your amp and mixing it thru a board into the video camera with the backing track? Thanks!

    I don't use the audio from the camera. I capture video direct to the computer from the camera and only use the audio in the camera to synchronize with the audio I am simultaneously recording into Cakewalk Sonar. It's a bit of a headache but the soundquality is better than anything I've been able to do with a camera mounted mic system.

    Thanks. I'll take a listen to it. I get so tired of jazz sometimes - mostly in the closed-mindedness of the listeners. I sometimes think it's better to play than to listen to. There's a lot of baggage there but it's a great discipline.

    True ... but Jack ... the way you approach jazz, playing and tone wise..
    is not run of the mill college approach ... You've got to validate your originality my friend ....

    You've already got a signature sound happening whether you realize it or not...
    You're not just playing a box through a polytone as is sooo redundant around here ...

    There is a heavy duty Jazz Master's education scene around this area where every other rich kid in Carmel and Pebble Beach is playing an expensive jazz box and running the old standards down ....

    Not one of them using overdrive or effects .... it's really sort of strange ... even backwards seeming ... Just the fact that I have the gall to play a standard with a hip-hop beat totally invalidates what I'm doing in many of their eyes ...

    That is some of the most outstanding jazz playing I have heard south of George Benson.

    It seems to be the guitar for the job too.

    What guage strings are those?

    Man, I hope my clunkers eventually get that bad. And by bad I mean good...real good...I mean...oh, you know what I mean. Beautiful tone too.

    Yeah, I've been through that extensively in DC and Cleveland and is one of the reasons I don't play jazz gigs anymore. I just got so tired of the close-mindedness (and this from the musicians as much as the audiences). I would get comments from certain local musicians to turn my treble all the way off or to not use a "rock" sound, etc., etc.

    Thanks. Those are .010s. I'd love to put flatwounds on it but I like to use it for blues/rock/fusion too. I'm hoping to get a cheap hollowbody to outfit with heavier strings.

    Play what you're good at does not equal growth. Playing honestly means playing what's in your heart, not where you happen to be at a particular place in time. Playing music is a journey. To play what I'm good at when I've only just begun my trip is counter to where I want to be. Besides, let me be the judge of that. You've made it clear over and over that you think I'm in over my head when playing the blues. I'll just keep truckin' along thank you very much. ;)
