The Sidewinder - Rendition
*

This song is not in a battle


Another melody I love. Crikey it was not easy picking the notes out by ear and even though it's 24-bar blues, I found it hard to lay down the rhythm track....lol
The melody line has many chromatic notes, it's not easy I tell you to create a nice melody in the chromatic scale, Lee Morgan who created this is a genius in my opinion, the melody fits perfectly around the rhythm, I wouldn't mind guessing that he was a perfectionist, the original version has two trumpet players, man they are so tight it's unreal, not to mention the energy, which is vibrant.

So Here' Den's version with Acoustic Guitar lead left channel and Electric Archtop on the right

When I finished producing it all I could think of was RETRO......

Pretty fun jazzy sounding tune, I like it. I especially like the guitar towards the end.

Yeah, I'm gonna do a new album mostly renditions, Tunecore recommend this for marketing, hence more chance of people wanting to listen to your music when searching for a particular song.

Denis, I know your set-up - I'm still impressed with the quality you get in your recordings.  This is superb - playing, mixing, choice of guitar sounds, everything.
Loving it.

is it the original solo you are playing or is it some improvised. I am not sure, but I heard another scale there...

but.... your work is always great and I think you've had a lot of fun to record this.
technically no comments... simply great

Solo was improvised, it was a fun challenge learning the melody line, hence I play by ear, I really love the melody, it's so unique, masterpiece by the great Lee Morgan, this composition should get more recognition, it truly is a masterpiece IMO
I'm not sure what scale I was playing in on the solo, most of the time I just fealt the notes.

Cheers
