Thanks
Z. This is a bit of a stretch for me, I've been listening to alot of Jazz guitarists lately, Wes Montgomery, also Ronnie Earl does the swing guitar thing. I love some of the jazz licks those guys pull off. Thanks for stoppin bye.

Thank
you McBoy. Yes the strat has so many tone variations it really makes you play differently. I find that I like the clean warm tones the best, just the natural twangy sound of the single coil pickups, doesn't need much dressing up with effects. Will look up Charles Earland on itunes. Thanks again.

Bill, the soloing is sooo fluid, sonic silk. Smooth and nicely paced. The backing tracks are spot on in the support dept.

Thank
you Karma. This was a fun one, 20 years ago I never thought I'd get into swing, but I just love the jumpin style of this type of music. Thanks for stoppin by.

Your Strat sounds great.You play effortlessly-nice improv.Ever heard Wes Montgomery's solo on "No Blues" from "Smokin' at the
Half Note?" an absolute masterpiece.
Really enjoyed this one!

Wow
That's quite a ride! Beautiful pacing on this, and lots of compelling changes along the way. I think that stepping out of the comfort zone and into some less familiar territory is always a good thing to do. Thanks for this.
