    Cool tune. (And tone.) Stryker is one of my favorite contemporary jazz guitarists. I think it's because he's so steeped in groove / blues, that organ trio vibe.

    Great playing. Really enjoyed that, DB. What a way to start my day!

    Thanks Pingu. Yes, it's an ES 300 from 1947.

    The set is a 0.11 TI set, so from 0.47 to 0.11. A very light string gauge but it still sounds big enough.

    I am really happy to see that you are able to play. You had some of us worried.

    Nice Blues you laid down there, with a nice medium tempo groove that just keeps going. You were really talking through that guitar and exploiting the entire fretboard.

    Thanks Alsoran. I did play with a brace on. Maybe you noticed. It's on my fretboard hand.

    The wrist tendonitis is still not gone but I am postponing the inevitable ... probably an operation.

    DB's a DIRTY guitar player!

    Maybe we gotta re-tag that picket fence?

    I wasn't going to say anything, but when I see a guy playing the Blues like that (even traditional Blues), it seems as though they are saying something with the guitar that at times, might not be socially acceptable, if you know what I mean. They seem to have that little smile from time to time and you kind of wonder, just what was he thinking when he played that line? Then they push ahead to the next and you have to move along with them and no one is the wiser to the possible naughtiness.

    Just my crazy, personal observation.

    I grew up on blues, rock and pop and only started my jazz career when I was 37 years old. Before that I was in al kinds of rock and pop outfits. In the early 80s I was even playing punk and new wave. I quit pop music in the mid 80s after a failed record deal with a major label and started working and studying again. That was a good decision that probably saved me a lot of frustration. Ended up as a college professor and picked up the jazz guitar.

    But the blues is where I come from.

    I was kinda hoping you got my Howard Roberts reference.

    I'm a grade school special education teacher, what do you teach? Philosophy (just from our recent previous conversation)?

    I did. But I felt the need to explain my blues background to Alsoran but probably replied to the wrong post ...

    I have recently retired but I worked as a lecturer in Marketing Communications at a university. So quite mundane a subject actually!
