Post Satin Doll - Stick Version
Layla on Friday, Giant Steps on Saturday, and now Satin Doll on Sunday? It's almost a "song a day" kind of thing...

Again, I thought I'd record the results of this morning's practice session - This time a sort of mangling of "Satin Doll". It's really apparent how 'root note' oriented I am in my phrases over my solo, but it's a starting point. I was pretty much on the verge of falling apart reading this one down with the Steve A. patented "1235" scalar sequence under the head... Also, I tried to do the first pass of the melody with octaves in the right hand (needs work, I know) and then the second pass all on one string (High 'C' on the melody side...) as just single notes...

The solo section finds me outlining the changes using 3rds and a rhythmic sequence that I like in the Bass side, while doing my best to play key centres on the RH. Again, just a practice session I thought I'd share.

I recorded the A section in one pass, and then the solo section separately (Although I did play everything hands together as I recorded it, same as always.

Obviously, this could use some arranging and a bit of TLC rhythmically, but it is what it is. The result of about 45 minutes of messing around. I personally think it sounds pretty funny hahaha

lol Least loved of the batch of tunes I did yesterday, I just listened to this one again, might need a bit of TLC and then a re-attempt. Still it was fun, and for the time and effort I put in (not a lot), totally worth it...
