make me feel better!

Blues and far beyond
Was walking around in house listening. This is a weighty thing. Struck me
that it is blues and far beyond, because there is such an intense sense of
sorrow, or grief. Blues of course contain this, but traditionally blues has
been rougher, harder, often carrying hopelessness.

Your music ziti, carry so much warmth, so much will, so much belief.
Belief in a better mankind. Belief, and hope, of a better world. And yes,
the word regret also came to my mind, (and I had to go look; didn't you
mention something about regret).

Regret being the first giant step towards new life.

This is one of those ones...
...wherein is distilled much of the "Ziti sound", but more important than
that is that it's also one of those ones wherein is distilled much of the
"Ziti personality" as well...

Or, at least, one aspect of the Ziti personality...

Distilled, and perhaps taken a little further...

seeing as how fame and fortune have managed to avoid me, the only point
now is to continue to develop the voice i've found. I am so glad to be able to
record these efforts...and have some people listen to it and care about it.

thanks for your encouragement and friendship

no "Russian Whispers" here
Fran, this is another wonderful bit of playing. Everything sounds so
full of sould (and, yes, regret) - I love how you are able to translate
feeling into notes and back again at the listener's end - no "Russian
Whispers" here, I'm confident I'm getting what you're sending. Your
comment to Ed about how "fame and fortune have managed to avoid
me" is surprising on one level - you clearly have the skills, dedication
and sheeer love of what you do (and how you do it), but on another
level, I suspect that there might be a lot more to life than touring,
recording and fighting off beautiful women - ummmm did I get that
right :) !!!!???!!!
Thanks again for sharing your skills and emotions with us here at MJ
Fran,
Neil

you know
fame and fortune at this point would be a pain in the ass anyway...the fame
anyway!...who wants everyone to know who you are all the time? fortune
would be convenient as i have 2 children heading to college! I think with me,
it would be more the acceptance of my playing, and the vindication that
would happen if some reward came in. I would know all this wasn't a foolish
waste of time...I think that would be a nice feeling. I have never been a
money guy. But i am enjoying the process of recording music so much now,
and it is a dream come true to be able to record it all...and have the
recordings sound nice. i feel like i have found my voice on the
instrument...now i just want to build the sound, and get the sound perfected.
it is an unbelievable joy to have a nice group of friends scattered all over the
world who hear it and like it. and understand the feelings expressed.

really fine
playin and production. The soloing in particular captures everything I
love about the electric guitar. The nuances, riffs, chirps, fret action and
verb all conspire to create the zetes sound. The backing tracks also do
a wonderful job in the support function here. Understated and subtly
played they are perfect frame and foli for the solo. You do a great job
of creating a large ampi theater ambience here.

i do
love all the various other sounds an electric guitar makes other than notes....i
think they add tremendously to the personality of the playing. I remember
listening to the Mayall & Clapton album when it first came out...of all the
tremendous playing on that, i loved the fact that you could hear the pick
hitting the string....

Glad you enjoyed John. You are the BOMB!

This is one great blues tune. Love the playing, the background bed just sets the mood...all those floating layers...and the solo sizzles.

Fame and Fortune

What feel . Fortune is being able to do what you love and it appears that
you are fortunate t do it well. Your heart and soul come thru on your
recordings. Great Job.

This has a great soundtracky feel to it...I could imagine it working nicely
in a noirish setting. Lovely guitar tones and cool, precise phrasing.
Nicely builds in intensity.

This is what I'm taking about...
music that conveys emotion. When you forget about what you're listening to and instead have a stream of images or visual life experiences that ream through your head. Feel the pain, feel the sadness, it's all in there!

Denny Borsboom said 4732 days ago (October 5th, 2006)
Could've fooled me...
This is quality work. Not quality as in technical proficiency or
speed or technique (the uninteresting stuff), but quality in terms
of storytelling, phrasing, speaking with your instrument. A very
rare talent. I don't understand how fame and fortune passed by on
you. I hang out with people who love guitar music, and if I were to
let them hear this and said it was a lost bootleg tape of some
famous blues player, they would probably buy it. Now that I come
to think of it, if you turned out to be a very famous blues player
harassing us here on macjams under a pseudonym, I would buy it.
If you made a cd, I would buy it. In fact, I would buy one for all of
my guitar loving friends. And they would buy it for theirs. This
deserves to be heard around the planet. Really, extremely good
work. Thanks for posting this.
Bye
Denny

Masterful
Drenched in soul, like a mournful Jeff Beck solo... It seems that you've dissolved the intermediate steps between your mind and your fingers and your guitar just speaks your thoughts directly. Great work Fran, you rock.

The Z signature
...It's all over this room now. Wonderful moody piece. Very sad, and filled with tears and cry. I'm impressed with how you've made this instrumental so alive through all the stages of the tune. That is not an easy thing to do... and it has a good live feel.

no pedal
that's the pinky curl...not as easy on a PRS as on a strat...but when set on the
bridge pickup, the volume swell on the PRS is really cool - i think anyway!

thanks for listening

Few do instrumental blues...
... as well as you. I've heard this tune on another site, and was appropriately floored by the delivery and the passion of this track. You have a fantastic "guitar voice" that is both recognizable and welcome to these ears. Nice use of volume swells, and the very tasteful firey licks interspersed with a practically heartbreaking blues melody. I'm also very glad to see you're quite the brand name on this site. It's well deserved. Thanks for sharing.
