Nice one Dave, you can never leave the blues behind, and boy do I recognise that backing track!
What would happen if you had to use the jazz knowledge you've picked up over the last couple of years on the same backing track? Might make an interesting post.
Yes - I visit your page from time to time, and see you've clocked up a few of those!
Could try the jazz stuff, but was listening to Buddy Guy, and then later watching a DVD of Albert Collins, and was absolutely blown away, again!, by the man's tone and vibrato. Unbelievably huge sound he got. I very much doubt there is anyone on the planet now who could get tone like that - I know guys like John Mayer would be the first to admit that he 's just not in the same ball park as far as tone is concerned. The Kings, Collins, Buddy Guy...from a different planet. Planet Monster Tone!
Re: Video Channel Ok finally got off my procrastinating butt and made another video. Here is an example of the type of stuff I've been mostly playing in recent years. I decided I'd really like to get a latin/world jazz group together and here is an example of the type of stuff I want to play.
This started out as a solo guitar piece. I turned it into a version that would work well with a band (I think), and recorded the bass and rhythm guitar myself. Drums is just a midi track. Arranging, rehearsing, recording and editing took me about 6 hours...
Re: Video Channel Nice recording. Everyone learns Romanza, it was the first classical guitar piece I learned Recuerdos has always been on my "want to learn" list, just been too lazy to get around to it, and I've already got like 20 pieces that are at about 90% that I need to finish up.
Re: Video Channel Thanks Zen. This one also falls well into the less than finshed category. I've mostly got the notes, and a little bit of musicality in there now, but Youtube has the real article in abundance.
The workload to get it to that sort of standard is outside my remit, but it's always a good learning experience to revisit it once in a while.
