I used one of Jimi Lee's jam trax with a ii V I progression for this one.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Great work Walterjuke! I'm going to try and learn some of your fast runs from this submission. 2 and 5 are my favourite choruses. Great stuff!

Nice feel all around. Sounds

Nice feel all around. Sounds very natural to me. I'm not a big 6 draw fan but that's just me little opinion. Good upper register work too. You seem to know your way around the harp. The ending was shaky though. Good work!

Here we go!

Open - Cool... bend that 4' deeper
CH1 - Nice head / you have a nice relaxed feel... perfect for this swing / I like your use of dynamics
CH2 - Nice lick / That's a lot of playing in the holes 2-6 range... let's see if you change it up... don't bore me now! ;-)
CH3 - Yes, 2"! Play it LOUDER... the 2" is a very bluesy note... work it
CH4 - Nice use of the 3/4 / Love the 3'/4' in the IV
CH5 - Nice dynamic changes
CH6 - I like the 6 lick and the high-end fills
CH7 - Nice chording / you're doing a great job of NOT boring me! ;-)
CH8 - Nice use of sequencing... I was hoping you would do that as I was listening to it
CH9 - Head returns / work on mastering the rhythm at the end there... you want to leave with a good impression

Good use of all of the elements needed in an instrumental piece. Thanks for submitting!
