It's too short. ;)
I was pretty happy with this take, except for one part around the 53 second mark where I was ahead of the beat. :mad: I didn't want to ruin it with a ridiculously bad solo attempt. I'm going to try hard to study the changes and see if I can do a full song before the month is out. Trouble is folks tire of listening to the same person after the second or third post. Can't really blame them though. :verysad;)

No we don't but we just forget to comment, I often set a track playing then go off reading stuff whilst I listen and forget to go back :)

I'm basing this on the number of plays I get on soundcloud for any given month. For example I may average 20 plays the first post. Second post 9 or 10. Third post I'm lucky if anyone listens at all. Just my experience.

Sadly true ... so produce a track that's all solo instead. ;)

That way, you get to let rip, we get to hear you letting rip and it's a brand new track so no problem of people being uninterested in listening to the same song again. :thumb:

Change the tempo too. Different embellishments become apparent at different tempos tempting you to get lost and find your way back in different ways.

True. And it helps to create a different vibe to the tune.

Excellent tune and some nice versions so far.

My favourite performance is a live recording by Dexter Gordon from his superb album(s) Swiss Nights.


What a sound and what great music !

I have been really studying this tune, and this transcription is a "master class" by Dexter Gordon on what notes sound "hip" over the changes. His "quotes" of other Jobim tunes are delightful as well. @Colin the Bear What's not to like???

I was in the groove and it suddenly stopped.:(
Thanks for listening Rob, I really appreciate it. I was mainly seeing what kind of sound I could get and I wasn't ready to try a solo. I'm getting closer to following the changes and will post a final take before the month is out.
