    Many of us will miss you. I appreciate your respect for "traditional" jazz guitar and your affirmation of modern styles as well. I also respect knowledge and capability, and you have both.
    Don't stay away too long!

    I will not post my take this time because it would be unfair to those who have never played it.

    If you guys are going to go at it again, either get a room, or do it in spandex on Youtube, but please don't do it here.

    Hello everyone, I have been away for a while. Yes I have been really busy, but also the vibe here has been a little...hum...well you know. Got my old Ibanez AM-75 out for the occasion. I rarely use it, but my wife thinks it's my best sounding and looking guitar...

    Sounds great—welcome back. Aside: I like the look of a black guitar with off-white binding.

    Looking for opinions or advice on the general sound how it comes off to a different listener. I know I can improve on the solo. It's tough cuz I'm trying to get better at doing the whole thing at once with foot bass. It's just me and the drum track.

    Overall sounds really good. At certain points you are swinging really hard—I couldn't hear any drums at all, but I was bopping my head through the whole thing, so in my opinion, your swing feel is one of your strengths. Oddly, perhaps, time is also where it sounded like there's room for improvement—this is just nitpicking on my part because you asked for advice—when you're swinging, it sounds great, but perhaps you need to work a bit at making it more consistent. I'd say 80% of the time you were really solid and grooving, with just a few noticeable time slip-ups here and there. Nice work—the tone is fantastic, too, by the way.

    Thanks for the compliments. This is my new beastly rig that I got in March and I like it. About the criticism, that's what I make of it as well. I generally want to improve my right hand lines, but that can come with time. Room for improvement now would be to get all the rhythms solid without hiccups. I'll practice solo and think it sounds ok, then think I should really be practicing in time to a drum track. So I put on the drum track and I think hey, I'm groovin pretty well. But then when it comes time to get in the mix and put on the headphones to record, I'm like oh dear God lol. Something about being in the mix just reveals everything about the shoddy rhythms. Maybe I should practice recording more often to make sure the time is where it should be. Thx for the feedback.

    Fine playing there Clint. What I am missing is a bit of sound dynamics: I just love the sound when the organist "digs in" and you can hear the tubes crying for mercy...

    Funny trivia: for a while I took your avatar to be a double neck steel guitar.....LOL!

    Hahaha! You thought it was a guitar lol!

    Also a good suggestion, thx. I usually go hog wild with the expression pedal when I'm practicing. It's a little more work to set all the levels right while recording and get the quiet to not be too quiet and get the ramped up parts to not clip, but if that's what the listeners want, then that's what I'll work on!

    Obviously this one is not as easy as I thought it would be - at least not for me. The fact that there are different versions of the chord progression around and the changes of the backing tracks on YT do differ as well is throwing me a couple of curve balls so apologies that I haven't posted anything yet.

    All right then, I've played this a lot for a long time (maybe not since the late '70s, but it feels like it's been that long). Don't tell me you're all holding back your versions in anticipation of my shame-inducing greatness ... but just because I've been playing it for decades doesn't mean I've been playing it well



    Now, off to listen to you guys ...

    Nice Ronstuff and kudos to John A both for playing and general attitude. Intelligent dude, I would say.

    Great take. Looked like you were having a lot of fun with it. Lots of nice bebop lines at what is to me an impressive tempo.

    Doesn't sound like a Strat at all.

    The strat sounds wonderful! If that comes from it being "beat up" I'd say keep beating it up. The solo has really nice phrases over the changes. I'm not the best person to offer this particular critique since I'm struggling myself, but I didn't sense a "shape" for the solo, the since of it moving via rising tensions and resolutions to a climax. This is the very thing I have trouble doing as well, but unlike me, you actually have the vocabulary and phrases to put together a coherent and exciting statement.

    That was really fun to listen to. Nailed it. The way I want to play when I grow up.

    Here’s a long take with few ideas. I’d stop listen after a chorus or two if I were you.
