Great memories. I was at that concert. Absolutely incredible atmosphere. My favorite part remains Bob Mintzer's bass clarinet improv. right after the first song ("The Chicken"). Amazing musicality and feel. (Only downside to this post is the unbelievably nasty comments and back-and-forths below...wow.)
Merci, Henrique.

J'ai la chair de poule à écouter cette musique!! Il prenait le temps de jouer, de développer leurs idées.

This brings me back to my youth, this is some of the best progressive music my homeland had at the time (1970s). Merci, Zumazin!

It's refreshing to see a video companion that addresses some of the concepts from your method, Greg. Thank you for taking the time. I'm also gradually getting Railboard Stick envy... :-)

As always, Greg delivers a wonderfully dynamic and musical performance. His touch is what made me appreciate and want to learn the instrument (I received 'Stick Figures' the same I got my first Baritone-tuned 10-string instrument, back in 199...)

Well done, Greg. Thank you for sharing with us.

Brings back memories! Who else listened to these songs way back when...?

Beautiful, relaxed arrangement of this classic. Nice RH stretch to deliver the last chord! And the tone, very woody and rich, is perfect for this. Well done, Greg.

The "G-major Bass Stretch" exercise at 10:43 can be transposed to great effect: try half-a-step lower, as well as up to minor third higher, with the first note a B-flat on the 10th string, 10th fret. An exercise that keeps on giving!  Another tip: start really slow, aim for accuracy of tone and energy before cranking up the speed. It pays off, guaranteed.

Listening to it again this evening. Gorgeous rendition, Greg. One my favorite songs from your catalog, and (I believe) the first one I took a stab at. A great piece and wonderful way to get more familiar with the instrument.
