wailing off the coastline
Funny, we just were on vacation up in Big Sur (photos/video at http://schwansongs.blogspot.com)... gorgeous coast, redwoods, and relaxation. This music, too is generally soothing and relaxing, though the occasional super-fast-fingered flying was rather caffeinated. The mix sounded ever-so-slightly hot or over-compressed (very little headroom?) but perhaps that's just my ears. Nice stuff, makes me want to drive back up there & soak up more blues :-)

Hey Frank
I am impressed with how well you matched the pic with the music. Wow.
I am a big sucker for music that matches the pics :) I just know, in a way how you feel when you look at the picture and hear your music. I love how you captured that beach haziness. I think it would be cool to hear you and Ziti doing a talkin to each other type of tune with this as well. But it is plenty good enough with you just playing. Really like the lush backround.

Music means a lot to me and I really have a respect when an artist brings a real sweet story to what they play and my ears can feel something special is going on.
About over 3/4 you did a couple of notes were you did a special move, it's like you went from one string to the next in a odd but very effective manner. Your kinda like a magician pulling out these special bag of tricks when you least expect it. That is what is so precious but high caliber musicians like your self.

Thanks so much for uploading this terrific piece of blues art.

I am blown away by the compliments I've received over this tune...on this site and others. This was just a quick little ditty that I blew out in a half hour and the guitar part was my second take. It was meant as a sound check to tweak the JMP 50 watt Marshall half stack with my old strat...then out came this melody...whatever...seems like my best stuff with the fans just turns out that way. I thought I was just watching to many Jeff Beck video's on Youtube...lol

Really nice guitar
Like a lot of the arrangement, too......BUT....the drums are way too static and one-dimensional, and, honestly, were annoying me so much by halfway through the tune I couildn't listen to any more, despite the great Jeff Beck (Rough and Ready period) vibe. I feel it would be well worth your while to either spend more time with the drum programming or find a drummer collaborator; it might just make the difference between 'great playing!' and 'great tune'.

Cheers, Shaky

Fab guitar
Such a nice spacious luxurious open setting for such massively energetic soloing. A great combo. You obtain fabulous personality in your playing/recording. But I gotta agree with Shaky on the drums. Two glaring inadequacies exist on most of your tracks: rigid MIDI drum sounds and lame endings or cop-out fades. The drums always spoil the live feel and I truly hope you can work with a live drummer for any real recordings you do. And consider codas and composed endings that leave the listener as existed as your clever openings, or more fulfilled. You are a fabulous guitarist, very good arranger, and have a marvelous ear. I say all this in highest esteem.
