Richie Isaacs - My work here is just me having fun with music,trying out ideas and letting my crazy inner voice play with a sharpened plastic spork.
I actually work best in a band scenario and is normally what I do,this stuff here is me having a bit of fun outside of my normal setting...also,if my cloning machine didn't look like a sheet hastily taped over a broken wardrobe with an old bike lamp tied on I'd clone my own band.

Yes,you've got that little Paco de Lucia/Rodrigo y Gabriele vibe happening. But your songwriters instinct is supurb again. This is excellent in every way. You've woven a very beautiful piece together, and it is constantly enjoyable to listen to it as it unfolds....

It wasn't Graham Lear, dumbarse, it was Michael Shrieve who played drums at Woodstock for Santana.

Hah, I'm a little slow off the mark here (Like two months too slow) but the rhythm in this doesn't need anything else going on lol, it's reggae...

Graham Lear was on fire then dude,I was into Santan in my fledgling years(I'm 41 now)

ha, yes, I'm referring to Santana's band (circa Woodstock), not Santana pentatonic scale (circa always)

Er,I'd rather not listen to Santana mate(his band is awesome,that one guitar tone for every song drives me nuts) but I'll listen to Al till the cows come home! Thanks for the feedback!

This needs a lot more going on rhythmically. Listen to Santana or Al Di Meola's backing band and you'll agree.

Aside from the lack of a rhythm section, this is a very enjoyable piece.

well as a Indian Monk once told me: "Americans go for ingredients and other cultures seem to go for the flavor" and you got the flavor right. I tell ya, it's hard to explain but the right music can make the spirits soar, and you got the magic!

I see it as a very high compliment in fact..I've played to lunch crowds before(for a meal and a glass of house wine) and during the 'drifting off' part of my performance(aka daydreaming) I do believe I played some of my best stuff ever...and when I get over there a grand tour is definitely in order :)

beautiful mate, you'd love south and central America, or the southwest, or Mexico for that matter. Reminds me of a lot of Latin jazz or Mexican restaurants I've been to. Cool flavor, no means is the above an insult.

Aww thanks guys and gal...The beauty part of discovering Rodrigo y Gabriela is they reminded me of the seminal classic acoustic album "Friday Night In San Francisco" which I thrashed in my early days and they put me back in touch with my roots...Paco is dang near a deity to me,I stole my alt. picking from Al and my guitar face from John.
And once I have my new strings on my acoustic guitar brother I shall get this done..remind me tho as my memory is poked.

Cool. I need classical, finger-picking sounds at 90 BPM, certainly 2-3 minutes would be plenty for me to sample, and preferably in the key of A (predictable, I know, but I am still conventional in some ways. . .)!

i like the acoustical approach to your reggae this time around, it makes it sound much more, well, YOU. I think acoustic is best for your style, frankly. I may need you to do a few solos that i can sample for a project I'm in the midst of. If you want to, anyway, I'll tell you the BPM and key!!!! You're a damn fine player, my man, and a damn happy man. Maybe I should move to New Zealand, live off the grid of America, particularly Phoenix which is driving me crazy.

I always try to play your stuff ritchie and even though I'm usually not close, it still comes out cool, lol ...i think i've made the frank marino and al dimeola analogy before, but this is the first tune of yours that i got a distinct paco de lucia vibe from....i'd love to hear some of your electric work. .
