Man you have some chops
great invention and killer technique. Sweet tone too.
Watched the film Jazz on a Summer's Day last night and got to see some great playing. You might enjoy it if you haven't already seen it. It streams on Netflix.

Who could ask for anything more?!
Superlative work Mark--I can't wait to get home from work so I can enjoy this better on my headphones! You are a marvel--thanks for sharing this (and also the fine picture of Mr. Gershwin. I think next you should play Berlin's "He Ain't Got Rhythm" for a companion piece!) Take care now and have a good, long weekend, Michael

Inner joy
I love the quiet glow that emanates. My grandfather use to play the banjo like this, full of joy, for himself, in a chair in the basement, one light, like quiet prayer. You brought all that back. And a fabulous photo with just the right feel. Thanks for sharing this.

So, in essence, then...
...each of your fingers has its own brain, is that right?

Sort of the guitar version of a stegosaurus, kind of thing?

Wasn't 'Soloet' a doo wop song?

Sounds great as always, Mark...
Ibstrat said 2603 days ago (September 4th, 2010)
A brilliant
idea! I could get some ancient stegosaurus blood from a mosquito, grow a dinosaur, then teach it to play guitar!

Such a nice

It's
an old 77 Ibanez Strat copy- I play only 1 guitar, I have a weird nerve problem in my left hand... it's the only guitar I can play w/o pain. I do use a pick sometimes but everything posted at macjams is fingerstyle.

It's getting to the point
where I could fave your posts without even hearing them.

But what's the point of that when I'd be missing so much?

Expertly done as always. Wonderfully inventive and neatly played.

Great tone
and great authority on those frets.Ia this total improvisation around the " I Got Rhytmn "or did you set it out ,it sounds like pure improv and one take?...cool if so and much kudos.........What guitar and amp ? sounds like a cello style hollow body?

I
always record in straight thru takes- maybe someday I'll figure out how to punch out mistakes! The guitar is a 77 Ibanez Stat copy,no amp Line6 gearbox.I worked out the "A" sections- the rest is noodling.

MArk, I'm always astounded at the way you play - if I lived a little closer, I'd be signing up for some lessons. This is another example of your skill and subtle taste. Lovely playing indeed, and I really like the tone here.

Rhythm changes
Very cool and slick, like everything you play. Yeah, that's right, I said "slick," meant in a highly-complimentary way (!). You should get yourself a trio, just add drums and bass, and the world would beat a path to your gigs. Or at least, people who love tastefully-played jazz would, and I'd be one of them. I remember learning rhythm changes during my short stint as a jazz guitar student... I didn't realize they were based on the Gershwin tune 'till about a year or so later.

Anyway, fantastic as always, Mark! Really enjoyed it.
