    High Water

    I finally finished this-it was a painful topic-and it simmered around for
    months.Its more whacky R&B funk/pop.

    I had a coupla guitar tone accidents that turned out interesting tho!

    Groovy as hell!Really enjoy the playful side of your guitarplaying,where you just play what comes to mind,very interesting both rythmic and tone wise.

    And your voice is ace!!!

    You have a great voice! This song reminds me a lot of Stevie Wonder-real inspired changes and funkier than George Clinton's shorts! Real succint guitar parts- very groovy. Did you ever have voice lessons?

    mikem thanx-ive had bits of vocal lessons here & there -used to sing alotta back-up before lead. Ive worked in the studio with some amazing singers-so
    by working with them-coaching/producing them i picked up alot.But mainly its just doin' it!And I got better when I decided to only sing my own words[you can hide behind a style quite easily-LOL!-same for any instrument!]

    Thanx

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your answer. When is your cd release plan?
    Please let me know. I am finishing up my new cd as well.
    I have been busy making instructional stuff and family..

    By the way, you have really cool website. I loved that player(mp3)
    did you design? You are really versatile on many styles.
    Great playing on slow blues to your original music. I dig
    your songs too. I wish you best luck on your new cd.

    PS, Joe Davis(iluvstrats) told me about you.
    I am a big fan of Joe too.

    Tomo

    Hi Tomo-luv yer live tracks at the Eminence site!

    Maybe September I will officially release something-its getting done in drips & drabs-if ya know what i mean!

    Tomo-do you teach at Berklee?-I went there the "Summer of Jaco" [77]-TeentownTeentownTeentown...etc..

    Ed Tomassi was my theory teacher-I think hes still there-he really inpired me-great guy.

    I was on piano tho-3 months was long for me + I was gigging full time.
    Is there still a "Combat Zone"?


    Thanks fer the kind words.

    the website is completely plug & play-my 5 year old could almost do it:

    That is so funny John. I too do my website with them, and my 5-year old DID at least name my band, Hectic Watermelon!

    On your tune, I really love the snare sound! Could you go into as many of the details as you remember? I love trying to find a good snare sound, but in my frantic, busy, dense, etc. mixes, it is really a chore to get it to sound snappy and full with all the other sonic competition.

    Again, tastefully done.
