Thanks for showing me how easy it was to use SoundCloud Crowbear!!!!

In case anyone's interested, I just uploaded a clip of my mom, Livvy Taylor (her stage name) playing a solo piano rendition of "Round Midnight" about 15 years ago. At 88 (like the keys on her piano Smile), she still plays every bit this good! Cool

Hope you enjoy!


Thanks again Crowbear!!!

Your mom is sooooo cool. You could drop in a click track to that and she would be right there.. Apple's certainly don't fall too far from the tree my friend!.. Extra-special stuff.

I have also had the problem of playing steel, on several tours in Europe, with Rick playing bass, but he is so humble and self-effacing that he always bolstered me up enough to get through the gigs! He is a wonderful multi-instrumentalist and has a musical brain the size of a planet. I can imagine that any tuition he is offering must be first-class and shouldn't be missed.

A small aside: I was so impressed by his Mom's piano-playing that he kindly gave me a CD, of her phenomenally tasteful jazz playing, that he'd put together.

Rick is a diamond - thanks for being my friend, Rick.

Just finished my 2nd Skype lesson with Rick and it worked out really well. He has his presentation all dialed in & I didn't even have to leave home for the lesson! I can't say enough about what a great asset it is. And obviously Rick is a very deeeep well of information.

Thanks again Rick!
