Love it Christopher,
As much as I love and am drawn to the type of chords your using, I really liked the single string stuff you did here... a particularly weak area for me.

This is awesome! I have a sneaking suspicion that you play jazz at a very high level on other instruments as well. Those voicings are tasty!

EDIT...watching your other clips....confirmed!

Thanks, everyone! I appreciate the listen, and the kind words

Tim, yeah, my day job is being a professional jazz guitarist - I’ve been playing guitar for over 40 years, steel for about 8.

Dale - I struggle a lot with the single string stuff, too - I tend to put these clips up when I have finally something that doesn’t make me cringe...

Tom

I’m with you - to be able to even play a fraction of what I’m hoping for will require 75 or maybe more years..

Hey - if it turns out your request works, would you put in a good word for me??????

Thanks for listening, and for the support - very kind!
