Description
a dedication to the Late great soul singer, Big John Croft. This man taught me more about feeling, phrasing, and soul than I thought I would ever know. He was a great artist and great friend and I miss him very much.

Nice tribute to the Big Man...
This has an awesome flow. Perfect tune for my morning here
today. Smooth riffs...tight, slow groove. Nice post Ziti.

As fine a guitar song...
one's gonna find. Top notch piece here. Really
enjoyed the cool, intertwined guitar parts, the
variations. All good. 8-9-8-8 Reminds me of some
stuff from QuickSilver Messanger Service back in the
late sixties, early seventies.

Is that Santana I hear in there?
I heard this melody before somewhere. Carlos? Great

top of the list
this is effortlessly professional ... at the least you make it
sound so ... because there is not any thing to improve
here ... you are already there ... you make very soulful
atmosphere in this tune ... guitar very smooth! ...

soulful...your love of music comes through!.......more power

Real sweet..
I loved the tone and the licks. I'm being pretty picky here but
I think one of your strings was slightly out of tune for part of
the song.
Great flow and nice backing. The production was top notch,
ad I think with lyrics over the top this would be sellable for
sure. Live performance would be good too.
ziti said 5145 days ago (May 23rd, 2005)
You're good
you can actually hear me give a little yank to the wammy to bring it back...If
people are listening that closely...that's impressive! Thanks for the kind
words!

jesus dude
Is that you in that picture? What an eyesore. You look as
ugly as the music you play. No offence.

I'm brand new...

BUT I REALLY LIKE YOUR PLAYING. It has a lot of soul, great
phrasing, great tone...AND I really like reverb...winning all
around...

WONDERFUL !
Mr. Fran this is just great, loved both of the versions !
Wonderful playing and full of feelings ..
Can you explain to me what Anonymous is saying ?? What's going with him ?? at first he said WONDERFUL and then he started to tell you bad words ! What that ??
But really this is great tone !


droop said 4141 days ago (February 21st, 2008)
Hey Ziti
I love the tone and the way the two guitars play off of each other. I love the blues in a minor, so you had me right off. You know what's funny Z is......I was discussing this snare with you the other night and it's not even a snare HA. Must have been a big stick though huh. Well my ears are not the only thing thats failing me. Anyhow nice to meet you, and this is really nice.
