Hey gents,

I was surfing YouTube and liked this vocal of If I Had You by Etta Jones. Check out the guitar "comp".

Etta could sing fo sho, the guitar player is one awesome player. So is the keys player, and the bassist. Lots of feel along with the technique from everyone concerned..

@dbm,

Agreed. One of the cornerstones of my "musical philosophy" is and always has been "technique in the service of music" not "technique for technique's sake".

Amen on the quote; "technique in the service of music" not "technique for technique's sake" amigo, that is my focus on solos these days, more melodic melody, less wanking.

@dbm:

The great Carlos Santana.once said, "Focus on melody. If you focus on technique you will end up being admired by a bunch of guys and there won't be a woman in sight".

I think we're on the right track, my friend and we certainly think alike.

Yep it is just a matter of focusing on the sound instead of technique. Listening is getting more important to me than hitting a bunch of wanker notes. It is a struggle for me because I have been focusing on a lot of notes & filling in and leaving no silences. Of course I have to throw in some ripping here and there, but there should be a lot more singing notes than ripping. My buddy Steven Wineglass over in Hollywood told me "make your solos hum able So that when the audience walks out they are humming your tune. Then you are in tune with the audience". I'm working on it.

Yeah man, you gotta'play phrases, you gotta' take breaths. My first Jazz teacher used to say, "play your solo like a horn player plays, or a singer sings".

I tend to play slow and smooth. I use speed to add variety or emphasis. When speaking about profanity, Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) said that profanity should be used for emphasis and when used too frequently, it loses its effect. I agree and think the same way about speed on guitar.
