    Hi All ,

    This clip started out as a track that I rolled from scratch to be able to practice my guitar lines over the Horace Silver tune
    "Song For My Father "...

    The main solo's I did using my Phat Jazz guitar strung w heavy strings played w an overdrive ...

    BTW the intro is my 7 String classical gtr that I mangulated into some sort of trance sound lol



    I hope someone enjoys the guitar playing ...
    All the best,
    Kenny

    That's one of my favorite tunes and you do it justice. It has a nice lyric, too, and I wish you had sung it.

    Hello Harry Styron ,

    I'm real glad I played one of your favorite tunes and did it justice ..

    Those are very kind words you have said too me and thank you for saying them ...

    In the past I used to just bang out a tune and just live with it warts and all ...never again

    The song as it stands now is still a work in progress .I think I still need to fill in some places with some keyboard parts and some more rhythm guitar parts in select sections of the song ...
    I expect to make a change within the next week or two
    As I add new sections and parts to the song I will keep the song at the same SoundCloud link ...

    This is the first I've heard about this song having a lyric ...thanks for the heads up on that ...

    all the best,

    Kenny

    Took me awhile to get used to the groove, and the aggression right off the bat, but you did some really nice work. The 16th notes are very smooth, some nice note choices. Cool arrangement, excellent playing!
