Sesame Street Theme

My attempt at my own arrangement of the theme to "Sesame Street". I don't know why it doesn't start at the beginning?

I liked it a lot! See my reply on FB but I basically said I would like to be able (I can't) play it for my two grandsons out on Cape Cod Mass. the next time I visit but know I can't.

best regards,

Thanks, Rich. Well, I guess it's a little different because it's my own arrangement and I didn't have to learn someone else's....lol

Looks like you have mastered video recording after a few years of researching it. Sound, video quality and playing ability are all great. Always enjoyed your posts and now putting music to your them is a nice addition.
Keep it up,

Jerome, I don't feel that I've really "mastered" it. I just realized that the quality I set as a goal was never going to happen and time was slipping by so I finally gave in to seemingly endless encouragement.......lol


I appreciate that, Ray! I intend to continue with this even though I'm not totally happy with the quality. I know that most people would be fine with it.

“Mr. Walker” I want you to know that your comment about my execution made my day and means more to me than you’ll ever know! I relate very much to Jerry’s assessment of himself when he says that he is more of a “guitar thinker” than a “guitar player”. I can conceive of and come up with all sorts of ideas and arrangements but I always feel that I fall way short of my expectations when it comes to their execution and implementation. This is why I’ve taken so long to start posting anything. However, time marches on and I don’t want to find myself one day on my deathbed with a life full of regret for never having shared my ideas online and wishing that I had!

That was a true pleasure to listen to. I bow to you, sir, on a job well done. If I ever learn to play half as good as you, I'll be happy. Beautiful arrangement. Lots of walks on the bass, putting me to mind of "Young Thing."

You REALLY need to post more!

Thank you, Doug. I've learned that I'm able to please others much more than I do myself! Did you also see my original from 2 weeks ago "Sneakin' in Broad Daylight"? I like to either come up with originals or at least original arrangements. I have a thing about not wanting to be buried among many performances of the same thing. Thanks,Doug! I'll post more!
