We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Heh - my Dad was the one who started me out on jazz- swing era style in fact. He was a big proponent of Freddie Green's approach to rhythm guitar being a big band guitar player. He also had an affinity for the greats of the emerging of the guitar as jazz instrument period ('50's) - Kenny Burrell, Herb Ellis, Barney Kessel, Jimmy Raney, Tal Farrow, Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, and Jim Hall. In particular Joe Pass and Jim Hall who I really wanted to emulate.
I started on piano and did all the scale and theory stuff but it never clicked until I picked up the guitar - never looked back.
I have loved this song for so long, I don't remember the first time I heard it. I only recently learned that Toots was its author. Toots started out as a guitarist. I never get tired of listening to Toots. I like his Brazil project album.
