    Wow .. like this take even better then the other one ...
    Let's see .. I just caught:

    Davy Crockett, Davy Crockett.. king of the wild frontier ..

    A Cream quote (Free or something like that ..)

    All around the track sounds real Eddie Harris like ...

    All kinds of hip playing there Paul .. even some real cool country type of lines in there ...

    Damn .. you're truly a mo fo of a sax player ..
    Great sax tone ... pitch, intonation & everything else
    (By the way , is sax your first instrument ....?)

    You're one extremely talented & gifted cat Paul ..
    Pleasure getting to know ya ... :BEER

    Definitely an Eddie Harris like feel! Very astute observation.

    I started playing guitar when I was 11 but at 18 had an industrial accident and lost part of my left index finger. I can use it to chord but not to play single notes so all my single note lines are with just the middle, third, and pinky fingers. I realized I could never be the guitar player I wanted to be so I took up sax. I definitely have more chops on sax, but I love guitar and still play it a lot and get around on it ok, though certain things are very hard to finger. Anyway I'm more interested in being musical than flashy.

    And as always it's very rewarding to hear nice things from such good musicians as yourself.

    Cool track! Loved the feel. The Cream quote was the only one that really jumped out at me. Something Beckish about the guitar, very cool! Enjoyed it a lot and am jealous you groove like that on two instruments. Thanks for posting!

    I got hired to play guitar with Jimmy McGriff and when he heard me play tenor he switched me to sax. I did do some gigs where I would switch off but he had a badass Benson like guitar player that he used...his name escapes me now but I'll remember in the middle of the night. I worked with Levon Helm for a few years, and other members of The Band. A couple of local gigs in Woodstock NY with Jack De Johnette.:bow

    Some rock bands like Orleans, Robbie DuPree...Ever since I moved to Cali in '94 though I just work locally and don't travel much. The Bay Area isn't the best place for those kind of hookups, though I play with guys in Santana and TOP now and then.

    Telewacker is tele-less these days. I sold my parts tele to fund the purchase of a '73 Marshall 8x10 in super clean condition. Magic speaker indeed! Anyway that track is an Epiphone Casino with Lollar P90s. I play with my fingers which is part of the sound. I think it would have sounded better with my Ampeg Gemini 1 which is my favorite jazz and blues amp, but it is at my organ players house.

    telewacker,
    love those staccato notes around 1:15. funkalicious. what's going on there? are those all down strokes with your thumb?? (awesome right left hand synchronization there...) such a cool technique. care to extrapolate?

    cheers!

    Great! Funky for sure. I like the lack of cliched lines one frequently hears over this kind of track. Reminds me of Mr Beck!

    I play with thumb and first finger for most 16th note stuff. Sometimes thumb and third, sometimes up up and down with the thumb. Upstrokes are harder. For really fast tremolo effects I use up and down strokes with the nail of my first finger.

    Thanks! Garth Hudson used to crack me up talking about "The Seven Deadly Licks". I know what he means though.

    Very cool Paul!

    You probably don't remember me but I remember you from Woodstock. I used to play down there w/ Nick Brignola. And Chris Zaloom turned me into a tele player after jamming and hanging for a few days with him. 28 years ago.....blink! I still have the same one.
    You sound great and it's cool to have you here.
    I think about moving back to Cali every winter! When did you move? It seems like I remember hearing your name come up not too long ago???
    Anyway, great to hear you. Very musical stuff and wonderful tones in both styles and instruments.

    Chuck

    Sure I remember you, more by reputation as you were up in Albany as I recall? Yeah Chris talked about you a lot. Mike DiMicco too. And of course Rich Syracuse. I moved out here in 94. I really like it....I'm an outdoors type always riding my mountain bike and I like the climate and dramatic vistas. I miss the NY energy at times but there's no lack of bad mofos and stiff competition out here. I still talk to Wieder all the time. Tell everyone back there I say hello!
