    Practicing Four. Haven't touched it in 3 years and didn't know it that well then so it's only okay but I had fun and learned a bit.

    That's one of the few jazz type tunes I play. Sometimes I try to fake it with blues scales but it doesn't work so well on that one.

    I think Eddie Vinson actually composed that one ... and all the older cats I've worked with agree. Maybe Miles forgot ... or the label misspoke, and Cleanhead got screwed out of royalties. He needed a lawyer.

    Have you ever heard/played the last 8 with this change? Notorious bass player showed it to me years ago.

    Many Thanks back sir, Thanks again decker we appreciate it.


    Yes sir, Digital Larry, It does have a few key signature changes however the penatonic blues scale can be used for each of them.


    Strat a various that is a nice twist in the path, I would have switched it up every other time with those subs if I would have known and thanks for the song info.

    Nice! That's amazing how you get an electric semi hollow to sound like a gypsy jazz instrument. You could easily do Django with that.

    Carl_Tone thank for your astute observation. I have not thought about what this guitar sounds like. The tones were set to about 3 or 4 on both pickups. The neck pickup alone was probably used the most then the middle position (with both pickups together on). Thank you for checking this stuff out. I appreciate your time.
