    Damn! I saw that earlier, Graham, and forgot to post it

    Extreme maybe but not bad

    I've got a carpet like that. £6 from Sainsbury's :-)

    He must like this tune, he did it on his solo record as well (Live at Smalls).

    Anyway, just a "read down." I think I'll keep playing this tune, it's bluesy, I like it.

    Nope, just about the cheapest decent one you can find--it's a Cigano. I absolutely love it.

    Your guitar does not look that 'yellow' as the cheapest Cigano on youtube))) The cheapest one seems to be laminated.

    Yours is probably GJ-15? Solid top?

    Yeah, it's the 15. It's not as yellow as many of the pictures I've seen, but it's definitely "yellowy." Like, they obviously used a tinted finish. But it's not bad looking.

    It's really lightweight, and it's louder and more responsive than a Gitane I had a few years ago that cost 3x as much. A friend of mine, who ran Caravan Guitars here in Chicago, even likes it, and he has a constant flow of 3-15k guitars going through his house

    If you can find one, they can be kind of a steal, imho. The brightest part of the pic above is about the true color of the guitar, too. Pretty golden, a little hazy, like an IPA.

    That's a pretty good deal. I paid a bit over 400 us for mine.

    I love the music and the guitars...sometimes the people in the "scene" can be a bit much for me...

    Thanks, fep. The piano and bass parts start with simpler input that I flesh out in a MIDI piano-roll view. (You're doing DAW stuff, right?)

    I love this music too and guitars but I just think I am not into it now.

    And I know what you mean about 'scene'

    He just doesn’t bother playing the head. His intro targets a few notes that are in the melody, but I guess he figured his audience knew the tune well enough he could skip the rest.

    No law against it, I suppose, and it's nicely played. At worst I guess it's just a bit confusing for the listener.

    Yes.. I understand this of course. Many plyers did that.

    but his impro sounds like a head.. the style and shape of it. It is very unsual.
    I mean usually you can hear improvization byt the way the phrases are built too... there is some conventional feeling for it ...

    like in classical music tehre are fragments that sound improvized though they are composed of course... it is something in the texture phrasing choices that sound as improvization.. same thing but for jazz..

    And Yusef sounds as if it is just a different head.
