Just a Closer Walk with Thee

Postby keener » Mon Oct 13, 2014 10:06 pm

Since I'm still not playing, although I'm thinking of starting back, I thought I would recycle an old one.

I think the Chet album that had the most influence on me was Back Home Hymns. I love every song. Here is my rendering of Just A Closer Walk, styled to semi-mimic Chet's rendering, with a bit of Jerry influence. I hope you like it.

That was very enjoyable, Bruce. I like the way you pay attention to the bass lines so that they mean something.

Enjoyed that Bruce. How you advanced incrementally on string 6 and fingered the G# in doing that stood out to me as I watched you play. What a great song that is. Thanks.
