    Here's my jazz rendition of the tune. It's a nice tune really, changes are like the A part of "Autumn Leaves" so very suitable for jazz. Your audiences will love it! And your students of course if you have 'm ....

    I chose for a different, brighter type of sound to cut through the mix
    better.

    That was a great take.
    I've enjoyed everything that you post. My inspiration always comes from people who can do what I havn't learned yet.

    Love your stuff Jazzerman... all of it!

    Do you take requests? I would love to see what you would do with the familiar standard "Street Where You Live".

    I apologize in advance if this request is out-of-line or not allowed.

    Keep up the great playin' (and postin')!

    Thanks ... I liked that last clip of yours! I stopped really studying rock guitar techniques in the early 1980s, just before the shred craze initiated by Eddie van Halen (?) so this 1980s hair style shredding with tapping and using the whammy bar all the time is something I never got into.

    When I play rock it's more like the classic rock guitarists of the 1970s you know like the guys that played in Thin Lizzy and Rory Gallager etc. Same with the blues.

    But I invariably throw in jazz and bebop lines at this time so it has probably become a fusion style when I use rock sounds.
