    Exactly, that's what I got. And nothing under Aegis music/jazz/bossa/reggae etc.

    All systems are entropic. No balls needed, just patience :-)

    Ok, I learned the changes and melody then learned a CM version. Next I'll try to find time to play with some single note ideas but family functions will have me busy for the next couple weeks. We'll see.

    Comments/Suggestions welcome.

    Very nice feel and sound.
    Nice chord melody playing.

    Yes, I liked that, Gramps, good pace, no backing track (told you!), good fade out, and those neat little bluesy things. Great. Best yet!

    lol. I'll consider it if I make any headway with single notes.

    Doing these is good for me. It makes me struggle.

    This take is recorded with metronome/low volume/.if you can hear it...
    That is very good- metronome help to keep right tempo.
    Next step will be playing with backing tr....I hope...:-)

    Kris, My track doesn't have a metronome. That's my foot tapping. I just started recording on my phone and played solo, no track or metronome.

    gramps, my metronome is broken, is your foot available for hire?

    I have to be honest I was surprised at how steady the timing was but no metronome. Just my internal clock.

    And to the point that the backing track suggested is in Eb rather than F shouldn't be an issue. For me time is going to be the problem for the next 2 weeks.

    I,ve started to practise in faster tempo.
    Most important for me is relaxing right hand in fast playing...anway I use Tele and new d'andrea pro pick.
    I think I will get what I want in the end of April 2018....:-)
    There is one chorus of my practise session:

    Hi Paul,
    This is a great take with nice backing track.
    Bossa style with beautifull chord - voicings/head & solo/.
    Your Tele sounds fantastic.
    Exelent playing.

    The bells thing isn't as mad as it looks. You've got to really listen to it, let it flow over you. Then it's quite nice.

    So, having gone crazy, I decided to do a nice slow noodle over the chords. Lots of subs and whatnot, quite fun. It's long, but I don't mind long.

    Wish I had the equipment and knowledge to post vid to youtube. My rendition of this song is in ballad form a la Tony Bennett, pretty straightforward, not too much embroidery.

    And not to get too far off topic, but:
    Kris, Eric Dolphy played nearly everything fast, but he also used large intervals between notes. Check out his flute solo on "Stolen Moments" from Oliver Nelson's 1961 album "Blues And The Abstract Truth" starting ~ 3:00.

    Just before we lose this tune, I thought I'd give it one more diatonic harmony-based workout. If you want to listen to it at all, and don't want the head, the two solos start at 2.30. The second is more adventurous than the first.

    I've been embroiled in the melody-based triads/quadrads discussion on another thread and have got used to hearing all kinds of strange sounds - in fact they've almost become the norm. I have to say this one sounds terribly bland despite my putting all kinds of subs in it. Quite interesting. Although it may be the way I play it, of course. It's not very bebop.

    There's something that may interest soloists... As you know, the bridge in this tune has two diminished chords in it. Some versions only have AbM7 - Ao - Bbm7. Others have that as the first line then Cm7 - Bo - Bbm7 for the second.

    Rather than merely arpeggiating the diminisheds, or struggling with the appropriate diminished scales, I decided to try something else which may be of interest. I decided to use harmonic minor scales instead.

    The first one, Ao, was taken as a sub for F7b9 as the next chord is Bbm. Therefore I used Bb harmonic minor for it.

    The second one, Bo, isn't the same. It's not a sub for F7 and I'm not sure of its function exactly. So I just used the same trick a tone up and played C harmonic minor.

    Perhaps a simpler way to look at it is to regard the dims as the 7th degree chords of their harmonic minor scales - Ao of Bb minor, Bo of Cm. But both of them work seamlessly, as you can hear.

    I also tried the same idea over a Bossa tune like Corcovado where the same thing as the Bo happens - Am6 - Abo - Gm7. Again, the A harmonic minor works fine over it.

    Anyway, here it is. It's very long, and probably of no real interest to anyone, but it's an exercise to keep my hand in :-)

    I've heard that singing the lyrics is a good way to start working on a song. This gentleman -- Frank somebody or other -- manages to do that with a certain amount of flair (although I can't say the same for the guy who posted the video, who appears to be severely keyboard-challenged).
