    Hi Everyone,
    I reworked my setup. More Cameras. Better sound (I think).
    This arrangement is by the immortal Joe Pass. Played on my Gibson ES165, through a Boss GT_001, using No Amp Simulation and a slight touch of reverb. Recording was done Using Corel Video Studio Pro 2019, with MultiCam Capture. 4 Simple Webcams were used, 3 C920's and 1 C930e. The 930 was used straight on.
    No Amp, sound was captured directly into the computer.
    I hope you like my Video.



    Thanks for Looking

    Your 165 sounds really good! I've become so respecting of the 165 175 they really are such easy guitars to play. Joe Pass, I find is one of the hardest to transpose. He has such a different style and his own swing to the tunes he plays. Hat's off to you for covering one!

    Nice work! That must have taken many hours to get under your fingers. Joe pass recorded a LOT of solo stuff. You can spend the rest of your life studying his solo work. Everything you need to know about jazz guitar is contained within his body of recorded work.

    More please....

    Absolutely beautiful, Joe. The ES-165HE is to the ES-175 what the L-5 WesMo is to the L-5 CES. Great playing, great sound, great guitar!

    Thank you! I am proud to own this guitar. And you are so right. The 175/165 guitar really is “just right” when it come down playability. The Joe Pass version of any song is a cut above. Very different to learn and just as hard to remember! Thanks SBNY!

    Joe is in both of our top 3. I’ve played this before so it only took a couple of days to get it back to recordable quality. You are so right. Learning Joes stuff is a challenge. He is so slick with he way he put together his arrangements. He had a pattern of subtle differences from verse to verse that makes remembering his stuff note for note almost impossible. Thanks Bro.

    Thank you Roli. The 165 in both floater and non floater configuration is a worthy off shoot of the benchmark they are derived from. This 165 is a fantastic acoustic guitar. I have to make a minor adjustment to the bridge top and then it will be perfect.

    N, thank you for always being a good guy. You are credit to the forum, big time.
    By using high quality webcams, I was able to keep the quality high, while still being able to use a 7 year old old laptop. This computer was left for dead after it stopped working. I took it apart and found a part that fell off the motherboard and crazy glued it back on. I covered it with electrical tape and did a windows reinstall. 7 years later, it’s still going strong. Recording 4 HD cameras and high quality audio simultaneously with no clutching was a shock.
    I am very happy with this setup for sure..
    Thanks guys.
    Thanks buddy.

    Years ago, I don’t know if it was you, or your not so evil twin Greentone told me to stop recording sophisticated jazz pieces in a tank top. Night and Day was the last song I did in my old get up.
    JP came up with this stuff off the top of his head. And he did it to a level of perfection not many others can match. One of my hero’s along with Johnny, he was brilliant.
    Thanks WM.

    Jeff, As you know, I have have mega respect for you buddy. In order me to play Joe Pass like things, I have to roll up my sleeves and learn them , you on the other hand, can come up with this stuff in your own. THAT, blows ME away. Your creativity is amazing to me. And recording stuff with a bunch of loving children crawling on you, that is, well, one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen here. Thanks for contributing to my threads. I really appreciate it Jeff.
    I tried getting rid of it and thankfully nobody wanted it! And that made me love it more. I think the 165 is poimenently stuck with me now. This will be one of my 2 or 3, that I’ll die with.
    Thanks buddy.

    Stunning is the word. Joe you did Joe well amazing stuff I cannot get enough. Virtuoso is my favorite all time solo guitar album. Reasons go deep ask Lawson as a 12 year old, it was my first jazz guitar record I owned.

    Now these 40 some years later I still could not pull it off. You got the chops, taste, and dedication the 165 sounds wonderful.

    Can you do that same thing on an L5 would like to hear the sound difference......if you don’t have a spare l5 someone can loan you one just to hear it.

    Hi Deacon, thank you so much. That was a beautiful post.
    Less than a month from now, I will take possession of my very own L5 once again. I make No predictions about its longevity in my life. But one thing I can say.. I will appreciate the hell out of it. My family has made a lot adjustments so I can have another one.
    You will definitely hear, to the absolute best of my ability, what I can do with an L5. The Plan is to have it take me higher, to a musical place I’ve that never been before. With the help of God, I will try to do justice to the guitar by honoring the 2 hero’s I have who gig regularly in heaven, my Johnny and Joe.
    And for my big hearted friends Vinny and Mikey, I’ll throw in a little George Benson.
    Stand tuned my friends. If you actually wanted to see and hear more shit from me, I’ll give you an ear AND eye full.
    I am working hard to deserve it..
    Thank you everyone.

    A lot of people comment on the good sound of your guitars. We have heard quite a few of them till now. Not one have sounded less than great. I feel safe to say that it's you, Joe, who makes them sound so good. You can make every guitar sound good.

    I remember the story where a lady told Stan Getz that his sax had a beautiful sound. Getz replied by holding the horn up to his ear saying: "Strange, I don't hear any sound at all."

    A floating pickup on this particular guitar was a good idea, in my opinion. If you can find one, try it. If you are not a fingerstyle player, you might have to move the volume knob, which is in a very peculiar spot on the pickguard.

    Foxman, I think he was actually smiling up (and down) on me at me on Saturday. I visited his gravesite. Its the 2nd closest I'll come to him in this lifetime. The closest is when I am playing his stuff. A while back, I was recording When You Wish Upon a Star, I actually felt his presence in the room. I froze the video frame when I sensed his spirit go past me. I have that picture.
    I am proud that I have made friends like you on this site.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I get more joy out of this forum than you guys get from my posts. If I didn't have this forum to share my stuff, I'd still do it, but it wouldn't be as rewarding. There were probably spectacular couch players before the internet who never got to share there talent with anyone else other than the people who were close to them. For all the players who honed there skills to perfection only to be able to share it with a few listeners, Just know.. I think about you while I am playing.

    Thank you Everyone. From my heart.

    Im just amazed at your level of commitment and dedication with learning and remembering these complicated arrangements.

    The playing was beautiful and you kept things moving nicely. I really liked the different camera angles, especially the one showing your clean fretting and movement along the fingerboard. Those views really showcase the excellence in which you played the arrangement.

    I agree with all the comments from our buddies.....and Im real proud of what your doing. I truly know the difficulty with learning this stuff.

    You need to make a video/ cd of all these arrangements while you can still play them beautifully Joe. As you get older , problems set in like fingertip pain, left hand fretting strength and arthritis.

    Thanks for sharing your talents.....cant wait to hear you on the Wes.

    Thank you for taking the time to think through and write all the nice things you feel.
    You know better than anybody, the greatness that was Joe Pass. He was revered by the Jazz community for his brilliance. I was so happy to hear from someone who was as close to Jimmy D’Aquisto as you were, that not a negative was uttered into your ears about Joe.
    I will make DVD’s and you will have one. I think I’ve gotten the quality of the recording up to an acceptable level. I hope you liked the sound. I am thrilled with the outcome.
    On the DVD, Joey is gonna help me with the editing. It’s gonna be exciting.

    Lammie, Hahaa.. I'll play a beat up old Harmony. Just as long as it has great LOW action, TI' Jazz Swings on it and it is completely detailed.. I dont believe that my guitar should have anyone else's DNA on it. If I bought Johnny Smiths D'Angelico or Joe Pass's D'Aquisto, the 1st thing I would do is take all the parts off, remove that layer of Mojo, polish it with Menzerna, Cover it with a coat of Swissvax and reduce its value by 50%!!
    And, the guitar has to be purdy..

    Dougie, You are so right. I'm sure there are some great players on this forum who keep to themselves.

    Like our good friend Marco always says.. The guitar is not just there to be played. It has to INSPIRE you. Inspiration pushes you. So in some cases, it is the gear. It really is. One time I am sitting on the couch after I practiced for a couple of hours with the 165. I am thinking about the Campellone, that I didnt play. I want to play it so bad. So, I get up and go back into the guitar room for another hour..
    Now, 3 hours total.. More practice... Good thing.
    Wouldnt have happened if I didn't love and want to play that guitar..
    It means a lot.
    Thank you DM. So glad I got to know you.

    As you can tell I'm fond of Joe...
    So knowing that I say this: I am not much of fan of Johnny Smith's style - I know, blasphemy to many here. It personal taste. I remember when I mentioned Diana Krall to my oldest niece how she viciously panned her style of singing. Personal taste I guess.

    So with all the videos ala Johnny Smith Joe has posted I was totally blown over by this Joe Pass "impression" - I know he freaking nailed it. If Joe painted a little mustache on and wore a white shirt and tie you'd think it was Pass playing... I guess Joe Pass's style is more appealing to me. I mean WOW Joey

    Now Joe also has the Wineburst and a GB100 I'd originally lent to forum member Rio earlier in the year. When he told me he was done with it I had Joe go pick it up figuring Joe would dig that box. They're truly great guitars, especially if you play standing up with a strap. In Joe's hands with his ability to coax things out of guitars a GB100 is a MONSTER with a capital M.

    What I'm waiting for, I'm waiting for Joe DeNisco to play in the style of Joe DeNisco... close your eyes and imagine...

    Come on Joey....



    Salutations to you all for Christmas....
