Breaking the Ice (by philonnie)

Get Flash to see this player.

My first MG upload for ages.... very busy times at work seem to drain my creative energies!
Anyway, this offering is a swing/cool jazz tune that's been in my head for years but I've only just found the right drum loops to fit in with what I had in mind. Also, I've just acquired my first bass guitar and wanted to lay down my own walking bass line rather than resort to the midi keyboard.

Any comments gratefully received.

My instrumental skills are quite limited so If any jazz fiends out there would be interested in contributing a solo to the empty section (especially sax, trumpet, piano) then I'd love to hear from you

Smooth, man...
....sweet fret-work on both axes, I was able to sit back and really enjoy this one. Would've liked to have heard a little more warmth in the guitar tones - other than that, cheers!

thanks for the comment Dreadmon. Yes, I guess the guitar tone could be a bit warmer... maybe I'll have a go at tweaking it. glad you enjoyed it.

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
