Playing "On Green Dolphin Street" with Sweet16


Recommended Posts

Hi, I play "On Green Dolphine Street" with my Sweet16

If you have time, Please listen to it.

Recently  I realize how hard to find other Sweet16.

Even Reverb has zero sweet16 now.

I really regret not get another one in modest price some years ago 😖

Wonderful! 

If you want to really learn how to play the guitar, learn some standards. You don't have to be Joe Pass to make beautiful music.

@busujiujitsu...Well done!! 

I remember my first time playing "Green Dolphin Street", sitting in with a jazz trio (Piano, Double Bass and Drums) several years ago.  I was not familiar with it, but they wanted to open with that tune.  I was playing my then, brand new Heritage H555 into a Peavey Delta Blues 1x15 amp.  (Killer rig!) 

They put the chart on my music stand, counted off and began.  Yikes!  Somehow I made it through, even faking a Wes-style solo, following the chord changes.  Afterwards, I breathed a sigh of relief that it was over.  The rest of the evening was a blur, and I even had fun.  But it made me aware of the need to learn and practice standards.   

Your rendition is 10000% better than I played back in the day.  LOL!  

Keep up the good work.

Thank you! 

Of course I love and respect all jazzguitar giants.

But I especially love Geroge Burnes, Johnny Smith and now Jimmy Bruno.

That's how they get guitarists to turn down as we all know.

Been there.  Done that...with the attendant feeling of, "Why am I all of a sudden running a fever of nearly 500 degrees?" when everyone looks across the stage at you with that "next sixteen is yours," face.
