So, I thought I'd post maybe a bit of a "demo" of what I'm talking about, along with a piece of music to illustrate my point. Basically, it's tonight's "practice". I do this sort of thing EVERY night... Aura Lee, is a pretty typical little melody found in lots of beginner methods...

You don't seem crazy to me. This is one of Pat's favorite standards. There are a couple of great recorded "official" releases with Pat playing this tune on "question and answer" and "trio live" both are amazing. I think you should write down what you are hearing, you a...
