    You continue to amaze me, John. Great song and superb arrangement. I think it's uncanny how EVERY note, nuance, and tone seems to be just the right one for the song. Perfection. I'm just blown away!

    Thats the aim of my game! Appreciate that-i try to emulate what live guitar playing would be on a good night in a sweaty nightclub-which in a basement as alot of us know
    aint easy!

    Hey scott -speaking of ideas lemme know if you [or anyone] wants the backing track- luv to hear some 'change' playin!

    Have a good day gents.

    Hi John,

    I, for one, would love that backing track.
    Not that I could ever approach your sensitivity and nuance I would like to try it on.

    Cheers,

    Johnny does it all!

    Hey John, I'd love to have this track. Just to practice on of course. Your effort was perfection IMO.

    Hey guys i will put the BT it up soon - if I have time i can make jpeg chart-
    theres a coupla wierd keyboard voicing variations here & there but for the most part the verses repeat + tag [me thinks?!].

    Cant wait to see what y'all come up with!

    hey janoz-i think the timing i'm using on this slow blues stuff is 'back phrasing'-something that old jazz/blues tenor players perfected decades ago-like Ben Webster-Coleman Hawkins[but dont horn players play everything late as a rule!;)]

    Cheers
