    My '67 ES 335.

    I played a solo over All Of Me without backing track.
    Just a Metronome.

    Fuchs ODS 50.

    Nice playing again Tomo! Nice feel! I could follow the chord progression perfectly by your lines. Tasty turn around at the end too. I have always loved that song. A standard standard if there is such a thing. lol!

    Thanks Tag.

    Thank you so much for your kind words my playing.
    I love that song. Just like ... Autumn Leaves and others.
    It sounds very simple, but it's really difficult play good.
    You know , good performance that makes people
    feel good.

    That's how I practice to play changes. I just got my
    Tone Merchants clinic dvd. I did some lessons on
    how to apply triads to tune...

    All of me is great song. This is a part of my "All of me
    lesson 101" I have many lessons built with tunes.

    Thank you so much!

    It's imortant to have good Tone, Taste, Time, my 3Ts.
    And one more T is having good Technique to support
    my 3Ts. But music, tune first.

    Thank you for your time!

    Fantastic, Tomo! There is no place to hide mistakes when you play without a backing. ;)

    I have often listened to my solos with the backing muted and they always sound terrible. I'm going to practice this technique.

    Thought I'd try to play over that minimalist backing you provided! :p

    I used my ES175, a pod pro and my thumb instead of a pick.

    I did not have the changes on front of me but kind of remember how the tune goes. May have missed a couple of changes but was fun to play over. :)

    Hi Paco,

    Once Bob Burt told me his 3Ts.
    Tone, Time and Technique. (I hope it's right).
    I had different 3Ts....

    I don't consider myself have technique... Bob
    pointed out that I do....
    I think I have enough technique to express
    myself.

    How about some OD tone?
    All of me #2 OD tone

    i'm talking about your 3T's (Tone, Taste, Time)..... they are the steer, technique is the gas.....or something like that;)
    you're one of my favorite players here.....cause of you taste, time and your tone!


    mmmh...the more i listen to those fuchses, the more i want some of them....maybe this year....or next.....


    all the best
    Paco

    Hi Tomo,
    I don't think we have had a direct dialog, but I have certainly been enjoying your posts.

    Regarding your tone, much like a few other very special players on this forum (they know who they are), I suspect you could make a 1 stringed ukulele thats missing 7 frets sound musical :)

    You have such a dynamic touch, inflection, impeccable pitch bend accuracy, and taste.

    Personally, I would rather hear 3 notes from the possessor of those qualities over any player with other technical prowess.

    Got-DANG, you're good.

    The thing I've always liked about your playing is the warmth of your phrases. I mean, sure, you're outlining the changes, but you teach at Berklee, so you sort of have to be able to do that, right? To nail the changes while playing such warm, lyrical, bluesy melodies is a skill on a much higher plane, as far as I'm concerned. It's appropriate that you're such a B.B. fan - although your playing here doesn't sound like B., it has the same communicative, storytelling vibe.

    Nice work!

    Wow! Thanks a lot guys! I really appreciated all your kind
    words on my Tone. That's I am into...

    I spent 2 days mixing my tunes for upcoming cd. This mixing
    session I only mixed 2 tunes. but both got good TONE. Mostly
    clean tone. Very pure tone. I am very pleased ... I have to do
    more.

    Now it's Saturday morning. I have to do one correspondence
    lesson before post office close.

    I will catch up you guys later.

    Thank you so much!


    Tomo
