Yes, the Grover Washington Jr classic funk track. After seeing Norm pull a track together using the Allman Bros Stormy Monday intro, i thought to myself "Self, you've been looping tracks for rappers for 15 years, why not for a backing track??" :)

Hydra

Have fun, Y'all :)

Here's my 1st take. Not wild about the playing, not wild about the tone, but its getting late & i'm tired - may try another tomorrow morning ;)

Ant, is this backing in tune? I went to hit it last night and my axe was really out with it. I even used my Peterson...

Its somewhere AROUND C# ;) I have a feeling those cats didn't bother with a tuner and just tuned to Bob James' Fender Rhodes. I actually tuned to standard and just bent enough notes to come close ;)

If i didn't make it clear, i didnt PLAY the backing, i just edited and looped parts of the original :D

Badass backing and cool playing, Ant. As far as it being out of tune...I play sharp anyway so it won't matter. ;)

Well, I've intentionally not listened to anyone else's take. Hope I don't sound like a clown.

My goodness... just tune to it by ear!
Like most all workin' jazz cats. ;)

OT:
Ever read Goodrick's "Advancing Guitarist"?
He doesn't dig tuners - thinks it messes w/ ear training... (to paraphrase)

Actually if I had more than 2 minutes.... I had to grab my B1. It was out of tune. I tuned it. It was worse. I had to go to work...... I can tune by ear to the backing, as soon as I get a chance to record again.

:D
