Post Stick Tune - Requiem For Persephone
I put this together this morning, along with another tune... Yeah - It's not perfect. But I did it pretty quickly because I wanted to do another one... Hopefully Greg isn't too offended. I spent almost double the time on this one, maybe that doubles it's quality? :D

Anyways, I took some liberties with the bass side stuff (right chord changes, my own sequences and closed chord voicings, 'cause I like 'em!)

Anyways, enjoy.

This was very enjoyable, Scott. But I'm not familiar with the original at all. I'm loving the chord changes and your execution sounds spot on to me.

Pardon me for checking out the original. I was curious...

Quite a different tempo and feel. What an excellent tune! How awesome of Greg's composition and playing, and I enjoyed, Scott, your take on it as well.

Where'd you get the music from?

Oh, you could embed away! These are Greg's tunes so it wouldn't bother me at all to have an embed of him playing them the way he intended. :D

Yes, my "versions" will be quite different as I haven't listened to Greg's in quite a while, and I just kind of studied 'em up quick and "filled in my own thing" wherever I could get away with it. Good or bad, I have to put my own stamp on something that I'm learning. Individualize it somewhat, somehow.

Poor Greg... The guy is most likely suffering traumatic seizures and projectile vomiting, 360 degree head spins upon hearing this blasphemy... gahhhhh Damn you Scott! *Shakes fist

Now where to get the scores! That's easy!

Stick Enterprises has this book called "The Greg Howard Songbook". Worth every penny! Although I was pretty frustrated a year and a half or so ago and just about tossed the Stick Book and The GH Songbook out (Due to impossibleness) I am glad my cheapness prevailed because I can make real use of both of those books now... I could have transcribed the stuff myself, but it sure saves me a lot of trouble just having the tunes there, ready to go.

Thanks for checking it out.

Hearing a stickist cover another Stick piece never loses it's luster. Good job - when are the videos? BTW - amazing fractal videos on your youtube page, I sat chin on hands just now for like 20 minutes oggling at the caves of Plato. :D

Yeah Steve's fractal vids are far out, I don't understand 'em, but I like 'em.

Videos will be forthcoming; I am kind of doing a renovation on my basement at the moment and overhauling all of my gear so it's tough to get videos recorded... Lots of chaos haha. Thanks for checking it out!
