    JGBE Virtual Jam (Round 3) - So What/Impressions-1611661499230-jpg

    This week, pick from 2 tunes that share the same basic structure, medium or up tempo. Take a few choruses, burn a little, have fun. Gotta have a modal jam at a jam session!

    Did mine last night as I'll be very busy this afternoon and evening. As always, looking forward to hearing everybody else's!

    Lol, to be fair, I'm not thinking about modes at all here...just Dm and Ebm blues ides, and Cmaj/Dbmaj and Fmaj/Gbmaj...

    And I think I superimpose a ii V in there too

    I'm kinda dreading this. I hate trying to play over long stretches of one chord. It unmasks my general lack of ideas...

    ON the up side, I just found a KILLER QUOTE to put in my "Beatrice" solo. Killer. It's perfect. It's funny. I can't wait to set up and record it.

    I have not really listened to this before unploading. Could be a wreck due to zero practice at the moment. Fingers hurt, but wanted to participate in something. Oh yeah, I'm fine with criticism.

    A particularly nice mood for this tune.

    That's a good feel Jeff, nice and fluid once you settled in, with some interesting lines.

    Thanks Kris for saying "original". (Edit: the referenced post seems to have been deleted for some reason)

    rpjazzguitar, pretty smooth playing. Thanks for your comment.

    I'm into this "play it and post it, flubs an' all" approach

    I got a two-fer for you all--seafood and all

    Here is the slower take:

    Here is the fast take, listen until the end to get the "secret meaning" behind the track:

    Nice sound and rhythmic ideas .Need a little more longer phrases with straight 8th in the solo.

    Thanks, that's good feedback. I also thought I was making the phrases too short. Thanks.

    Good morning!

    Peter C-- loved the vibe, the melodic lines with the fast flourishes...very Gabor Szabo. Which is a good thing. Really got the sense you were "going for it," which is the whole spirit here, I hope.

    Rp, you did a fun little palm muted thing in there that grooved so nicely. I enjoyed the whole thing, but that part was my favorite. Yeah, straight 8ths and longer phrases sound great on a tune like this, but they sound better when broken up with rhythmically interesting stuff like that too.

    Pickingmyears, I do wish the track was a bit more balanced, but I've been enjoying how "lick and cliche free" your playing is, because dang, I got a whole Lotta both of those things in my playing.

    Looking forward to more listening.

    this is from a couple of years ago, but it’s minus 2 this morning so seems about right.

    Sounds like beautiful freestyle intro before fast tempo take with rhythm section.
    ...but minus 2 and no rhythm section/frozen winter?/.
    Great video clip with exelent playing.

    I don't have the software or hardware to plug directly into my computer... I might try to plug in my speakers to get more balance...

    I miss playing live... easier to record for me, oddly enough

    I thought the fast recording was worth it because... a Kit Kat commercial played after the backing track and I couldn't stop the track in time. Thought it was kinda funny in hindsight.

    And Mr. B, I loved your take. Kinda reminded me of this guy:



    Mr. GG is a great inspiration in my book!

    There is without a doubt no guitar player in history I have listened to more or stolen more ideas from.
    Well, maybe Jerry Garcia...but I've probably forgotten more Jerry licks than I remember.

    Rag, wait, did you pull your first recording? I was about to listen through better speakers... I'll check out the new one now.

    Alright, ragman, listening now...

    Do you by chance have iReal? I'd like to hear you with just bass or something like that. There's a spacey quality in your lines I like, but I'm not feeling your backing here.

    But wait, you're from New York!

    Thanks Mark. Your version was yummy too...a "simple" 2 chord tune can be beautiful.

    Ragman, pineapple on pizza can get you shot around here (just kidding)

    Why? You mean here or in Chicago? Is it a symbol for something, um, not food-like?

    It's not SPONGEBOB is it??
