Chris, that's really nice. ;} Your tone is fabulous for a beginner. In fact, it's a great tone for an intermediate/ professional player ! Danny boy has a few timing issues, you start and finish each phrase in the right place, I just feel you rush the middle bits (I really don't know what I'm talking about)
Autumn leaves was great, I think the timing still had some slight issues, but on the whole was better, It could be that it has a stronger rhythm to it as it keeps you in check. :welldone
Keep up the excellent work, but slow down on the improving, otherwise you'll start to make us all look like we've been dragging our heals all these years! ))
Chris, is time to start thinking about ensemble work? If you look at Taz or my siglines, that's where we are now. I can't explain the rush I get when sittin' in with a killer band, even if it is made up with hobbyists.
