Been sitting in semi-regularly now with Claudia Hoyser. Added a touch of reso spice to this classic number.

Greg,
A friend of mine posted this on Facebook last night, and I have to tell you I love everything about it. You're playing is great, perfect for the arrangement, super tasty & interesting. The video is top-notch professional. Claudia's delivery is great, and as David Letterman would say, she's easy on the eyes.
But for God's sake, ask her next time to include the verse about the young preacher seeing her and Billy Joel dropping something off the Tallahatchee bridge. It's the whole freakin' point to the song! Laughing

Good catch Jack! I’m not sure what happened there??? We recorded 3 or 4 live takes and then I was out of the loop as to which one was used and if it was edited for time,etc. Either way - glad you enjoyed it!
