    great tune. Here's my take. It's bit sloppy, but maybe you can hear what I'm trying for. I kept it short.

    Great Pkirk! any “sloppyness” can be excused for all that energy and spontaneity. Loved it

    Am D G Dm G
    C Cm G (Bm) E

    Here's my effort just at the tune itself.

    This is my take.
    First time without a backing track.
    First time on a classical guitar.
    That is a heck of a neck to put my thump around, like I am used to.

    A different approach. This one is really long, and not for the squeamish or purist, but scroll to 12:30 if you just want to hear the final theme.



    I find doing a certain amount of this kind of improv is really helpful in all my playing. The focus is on patience, texture, form, playing the ensemble, is not about chops or "what notes do I play" which I tend to get caught in. And it justifies the cash I spent on pedals. The trumpet player Kyle Quass is a monster player.

    But I get that it's usually more fun to play than to listen to. Please don't hold back the "this is crap" comments! I can take it.

    I think there's an idea there but the problem is that it's a session rather than a performance. I'm not keen on the fairly wide delay effect, personally, although it could be ironed out. I'd prefer to see some sort of a finished article before passing sentence :-)

    I find the whole take really refreshing, especially in context of "improvise by numbers" approach, so usual for Jazz wannabes. I mean, it's not like something similar was never done before, it's almost a genre, but still, although improvised all the way, thanking to being aware of what the other guy and machinery are playing, it sounded like very serious statement. 17 minutes went by like this ...

    This is my latest rendering. I suppose it's 'playing by numbers', if one wants to call it that, but I'm not really concerned. It's certainly not modern or extreme but it is pleasant; at least I find it so. If I can get round the changes skilfully and tunefully then I'm happy. That's good enough. I enjoy doing it and, if I'm honest, slightly proud I can do that. So...!

    Nice phrasing Ragman.

    ragman thank you for your explanation, have just been so busy the last week have not been able to get to it. I really appreciate the time you put in and will go through it in detail.

    I wouldn't make too much of it, there's a danger in over-simplification. It might help a bit when organising a solo, that's all. Beware explanations as a substitute for experience.

    Knowing that there are only two kinds of letters, vowels and consonants, won't help anyone write their novel :-)

    Chord Melody is not my thing. But it sort of calls for it. So... I'll spare you a video

    Thank you, lawson. It's only cos I spared you a video :-)

    An Old Version of Embraceable You (2014).

    This is my submittal for now, I hope I have time to do another one sometime later. This came from an old version of Colleen (my wife) and I getting ready for a gig in a local club. I apologize for the poor quality of the sound, my home studio needed some serious help at that time.

    Naw, I'd love to see a video. Your playing is worth hearing on its own, but a video helps hacks like me see how you are doing some of these things. But the playing is very fine, I enjoy it.

    Oh, I've done one and got rid of it. Do I have to? It's honestly not that difficult. But I don't know if I could repeat it, that's the main difficulty. I can't remember what I did!

    No problem, really. You put the playing up there for us to hear, that's enough. On this forum there are players and there are talkers. You're definitely one of the players, if I may say so, and that counts a lot.

    Well, do want this then? It's not chord melody but I like it, there are some nice sounds in there. Lousy quality, nice sounds. And it keeps me off the street

    The strangest thing just happened. It's early afternoon here, a bright sunny day. While your clip was playing, suddenly, all the lights in my very large (400 sq. ft.) office dimmed almost to darkness. Then out of nowhere, came the sound of.... glasses, lightly clinking together, and ... silverware softly tapping on plates, the low murmur of conversation... then

    .. then it was over. I looked up, the lights were normal, my desk was its usual clutter... and it was all a dream...

    Possibly a visitation... or my clip was pretty boring and you drifted away... or you missed the cocktail party down the corridor...

    or this happened:
