Nice melodic runs! Did you improvise that? I like the chromatic stuff and the chord substitutions. Is that recording device a zoom H4? The click sounds just as mine.

Quite beautiful. I never knew this one had a gazelle in it, until hearing your version.

That is so much better than how I play it. I am going to have to rework that one. Thanks.

Now I'm going to have to chuck away the Alan Munde version I'm learning and do this one....well, maybe one for the future :) Love all the melodic variations, and little harmonic pinged in..very tasteful!

I definitely have to study your version, it's so much better then mine. Thanks for uploading all the new notes, you really have a talent for reworking an old tune! More... more!
