    It's been a few days now since somone posted. Is it time to call it a day on this one or is anyone else nearly ready to post an improv or something ..Given the number of downloads on my box account a lot of guys want to play this tune.

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Great comping approach, Reg! And I really dig the bluesy feel of your soloing. Really nice groove!!

    I have been stupidly busy and apologize for not posting. I hope to tonight after work (yup I work on Sundays!)

    Feel free to move on, though.

    Another good job, Reg! I love your video examples and this one for Joy Spring has some very good comping concepts. I think I need to add more octaves to my solo's & comping to add more variety to my approach. It is really nice to be able to visualize the chords and positions you use and I get a lot of ideas to experiment with when I watch you play. Thank you very much,

    sgreb: Sounds like you have a very good handle on the head and your version definitely swings in a nice groove. I heard some very good lines and I like the way you use the whole neck when you improvise. Also I liked the chordal improv toward the end and it left me wishing you had not been interrupted. I enjoyed listening to you and I am looking forward to our next tune. This a great thread!

    Thanks for the comments. Sometimes i feel like I'm really flailing on tunes like these. I should probably work more on "lines" so it's not such a brain drain to play.

    Thanks also for identifying my "groove". That's one area I've always been pretty solid at, except sometimes I tend to rush.

    I dig this thread a lot too.

    I have been away for 2 trips and all I have managed to sort out was the head (at anything like full tempo). As a medium/beginner, it is tough. Still, it is a great tune and I am just posting this to say thanks to you and all the rest for all the versions/takes/tracks/chord sheets.
