    OK, here's the backing track. I couldn't upload the original one due to copyright issues (it was an aebersold) but this one was generated with BIAB and is the same tempo.

    Just post a followup with your version!

    I love these group participation posts and this is an awesome tune. However, it's a bit intimidating for me to post my playing on this, you've set the bar awfully high. (I have an inconvienant excuse though, I'm still living at the hospital and don't have recording equipment).

    i'm going to have to record this with a live band. I have no problem with ppl using backing tracks but I just can't play with them, I tried to do a few takes but I just can't do it. Which is my own problem, lots of people end up working really well with them. I have pretty regular sessions so I'll just do it at the next one.

    Hey Jack, Count me in. I downloaded the backing track and it is excellent for Play-A-Long & practise. Which style (BIAB style) did you use?

    This is a great tune and everyone has a different approach to it. Wow! What a great learning opportunity! All of you are really good guitar players and this is like one big jam session where all can participate. I will do my best to get something out tomorrow.

    Hey Thanks Morten... and I totally understand what your saying about playing lines that have been played a million times before. A lot of my gigs are just that... But I still dig plain... I composed, arranged and taught for a bunch of years... and am not as fried as some of my fellow musicians.... or it might simply be I'm wired a little incorrectly... anyway. yea I'll get something up sometime today... Mondays are usually my off day...sometimes... I arranged a quick re-harm of Days of Wine and Roses for the this other thread called Standards Practical Group, we share versions of standards once a month. I usually play a straight version as I did with How Insensitive , with analysis and then post something different, either with time or re-harm... Here's the re-harm of Wine and Roses, I arranged and played through just the one time, it was fun...Thanks again Reg

    Here is my take on this one, complete with some clinkers. (kind of difficult for me) As with previous posts, the first chorus is me trying to comp and the other 3 choruses are me trying to impovise on it.

    I think you sound like you're on the right track, man!

    The only thing I hear is a "tentativeness," in your lines (you'll hear it in my version too, as much as I like the song this is the first time I've ever sat down and really got more than one chorus over it) so my guess is with some more time with the tune you'll be more confident in your lines.

    And time for me to heed my own advice!

    OK... so here's a totally new re-harm. of How Insensitive... I just wrote it out... sort of got through... I have exceptionally busy week coming so I figured I'll post even though it pretty rough... I like the feel, and the changes. Here are the changes... basically. It's in 3/4, with a dotted quarter, dotted quarter / quarter, quarter, quarter... a 2- 3 feel.
    There's 16 out front...with this groove. Thanks Reg

    This is a tune that I've been meaning to learn for a while now. I think I'll try to jump on the bandwagon here as well.

    Hey, for giggles, another take. Really just testing out the camera...obviously, I wanna switch to a higher quality! You just don't learn till ya see it on a bigger screen...

    wonder if anyone knew that this tune is based on a Chopin prelude. I had an ensemble of students that I had them use that as a piano solo introduction. Maybe that was mentioned already and I'm just too lazy to read everything... plus I have a hockey game to watch.

    I have a session tomorrow, I'll record it then. I have to drive to a gig in the afternoon so maybe I won't get it up till Thursday or Friday.

    OK I liked this song so much, went looking thru my Jobim books and found an arrangement by Paulo Jobim for piano, so now to figure out chords and maybe transpose to C.

    Wow! really nice Jeff! I love the soulful sound from your acoustic guitar. I can feel the emotion you put into the song and it is very fine music to my ears. Thanks for posting this version.

    Yeah man, way to go! I think this kind of guitar and style suits you well, comes more out of the speakers here than your last take. Even some nice Djangoisms in there, I dig that!

    Oh, and you should always make videos, not just audios! It's the youtube age, we want to see what's happening too! ;-)
