What did you use to record out of curiosity?
It was recorded in suboptimal conditions, *behind* the group (but very well placed to capture the bar chatter...), with my new Zoom H4 and its built-in mics. Reverbed and normalized in Digital Performer.

You ought to post this in the upper section so the people who follow that thread can hear what it means to play in tune with good tone and in time. You are obviously way above a student level but still your playing is a great example of what long tones and paying attention to your lines is all about. I stand to learn from it also. Nice job also playing as a trio . I was thinking about how to market myself as a duo with a guitar doing real book tunes. Not easy I bet. You are so exposed. Nice job again. K

Keith (and others), you're very kind....

I love playing with a trio, and I feel very lucky to be playing with John Werick, one of Buffalo's best bass players and a good friend.... It's hard to go wrong if you've got somebody taking care of business on the bass, and if I were doing a duo I'd probably actually prefer just bass over just guitar. (Though that probably depends on the guitarist!)

This particular tune does indeed feel pretty exposed in this context -- I put this up more out of pride for the tune rather than pride of the playing....

Again, thanks. I'll put a clip of something else from that night there....

Makes me want to pick up that Zoom 4.
I'm pretty darn impressed! I'm looking forward to how it sounds when it's actually in FRONT of the band!
