    I've got to take exception with a few words in your posting.
    Jazz-heads would remember The Brecker Brothers starting in rock.
    Rock musicians would remember them as getting into jazz-fusion.
    So they didn't start in jazz, didn't get into deep jazz, and attracting jazz-heads?
    iffy.

    Your tumescent description is puffy and defiantly not pointed,
    even if some of your notational flourishes are pointless.

    I liked your choice of landscape for your personal domain and left a comment.

    You have a very artistic manner of posting, John. I went to your luthiery site, and I keep wondering if I could one day afford to commission such a Master as yourself to create a beauty of a left handed guitar for me. We can dream, and dreams can materialise given time.

    As for notation - ah well I just copied from the transcription as given at one Lucas bassplayer (great bass player btw) but I forget his surname poor me.
    As it is, the last note is not C but Cb or B. Mea culpa.

    Catrina! Thanks for saying I have an artistic manner of posting, but please, don't say I'm a master, that's just not true. My guitar looked better online in photos than it did in real life, that's why I'm refinishing it. And I'm not a luthier, just working on the only guitar I've got. It's very personal.

    You typed "create a beauty of a left-handed guitar for me". Are you left-handed?
    Being left-handed with my guitar was as much a motivation as sound.

    Notation! After a while I gave up reading, trying to read, trying to forget about I,IV,V,
    and just visited art galleries and museums to see examples of very creative notation.

    yeah... I went from circular picking to circular notation.
    If you have a friendly bassist, tattoo his name and number over your heart.
