Description
I was watching a video of the great jazz guitarist Joe Pass- amazing how he could just let the music flow out.Here is my attempt to do the same.Just a chord riff with some improv and (quite a few) mistakes which I tried to get out of.The picture is of him with his 1st guitar.(Actually the first time I ever saw him with Hair!)

The
melody is really simple, only a couple of notes.Kind of like "C Jam Blues" by Ellington.I harmonized it with these sort of spread out chords that I've been playing around with. Thanks for checking it out!

I love
the syncopation and freedom of jazz and you pass it off as though it was second nature, which I think maybe it is to you..... mistakes? Didn't hear ONE. all I heard was a maestro at work, cheers M

Where are the mistakes? Those notes just flow off your fingers - you make this sound so easy to do - the sign of a real master. Thanks!

Lovely sound
as always, and what terrific melodic inventiveness you display here. I know I always end up saying the same thing when I comment on your songs, but I am once again stunned by the technical and creative prowess you display on the guitar. Love the dynamics, and so impressed you express it all with just the 'voice' of the guitar. Flow is the word. Very cool. Great Saturday morning music. Nicely done. Thanks as always for sharing. Peace.

Swinging
Even with no rhythm section, this jazz has me swinging. Really sweet playing. That's a pretty, clean tone you're getting out of the guitar, too.

I think some of the changes here
ARE OUTLAWED IN SOME STATES.:)

The people in charge don't allow them because they could lead to the excessive mellowness and a lack of productivity in the entire workplace :) I'd write more but I'm too relaxed and mellowed out t......

Mark's great jazz club...
I feel like I'm truly listening to one of jazz's great singing voices when I'm listening to your guitar. Every note is saying what was needed and, what was meant to be said.

You seem to be one with what it is to be in, the perfectness in execution.

Always a treat! Thank you, Mark! Macca

Ed Hannifin said 4088 days ago (June 8th, 2008)
Yeah, I'll admit...
I was several days into listening to this when I got the pun...

It was a great moment for me, I'll tell ya.

However, despite my liking for your work, I have had to report you to the chord police for playing chords with numbers with malice aforethought, and possession of leading tones with intent...

Sorry, Mark.

Well, okay, just to be clear. You do kind of amaze me...

what a mellow...
yet crisp sound on your guitar. I really enjoyed this light jazz dance up and down the fret board. Cheers and thanks.
J.A.Stewart said 4085 days ago (June 11th, 2008)
Well, I Saw Joe and I...
just couldn't let it pass. :p

Actually, Mark, when I see one of your postings, I know I'm going to get a good helping of musical sensibility and style.

Now that I got my fix, I can carry on. Nice stuff. ;)

Wrong chords ?

Sometimes they sound good ...
Well , anyway , for many , the right jazz chords sound bad ... :-)
Wonderfull playing .
said 4078 days ago (June 18th, 2008)
Niiiiiice!
What mistakes? (How ignorant I am....) This sounds marvellous to my ears. It was jazz that inspired a lot of the improv musicians used to do in the 60's...I miss that a lot. By comparison, most popular music today sounds canned. Great...but still canned. Oh well...my age is showing again!

I love this one Mark!

Be well!
