    Treasure of Sierra Madre was on TV on Friday night. It made me recall that Walter Huston, who received an Academy Award for his performance in the movie, was the fellow who popularized "September Song" on Broadway when he essayed the role of Peter Stuyvesant.

    Very talented guy.

    I'd forgotten about tune of the month. I did it last night and went to bed this morning :-)

    So THAT'S how you get your sound! All this time I thought it was a flattop.

    I'll try to jump in on this one. I absolutely love this song.

    That sounded really nice, rag. Definitely a "ragman kinda tune."

    I'm hearing that a lot - your kind of tune, suits your style... Is it the tunes or the way I do 'em?

    You have a very identifiable sound that works really well on certain tunes.

    Here's my contribution. Far from perfect, but if it was, there would have to be some trickery involved! This coming September I turn 65, so this song is VERY relatable for me.
    Played two times through, fairly slow tempo of 110 BPM.

    What's up everybody. Here's my submission. It's on organ, my new XK-5 so I don't have much experience on it. But I'm happy enough to submit it. It has foot bass and melody with response for the A section - 3 voices - and foot bass with 2 handed playing for the bridge. You probably need good speakers or headphones to hear the bassline.

    I like that slightly cheerful version of yours. Nice feel. I also liked your ending.

    Nicely done hohoho! I like that it is all you, and no pre-fab backing tracks. Is that three tracks?

    Thanks alpop! Well, if you count the click track (count in) there are three .
    The comping is walking bass and shell chords played simultaneously.

    That is well done! Takes quite a bit of work and practice to get happening. See you (hear you) June 30th I presume?
