Hello Young Lovers/I've Got The World On A String (Big Band Guitar)
Get my books and recordings HERE
I've been playing with Tim Rushlow's Big Band since 2014. I played on Tim's first big band album and it was one of the most challenging things I've ever done in the studio. The chords changes were complex and some of the tempos were FAST. Again, knowing the fretboard well got me thru that session.
We recorded 9 songs in one night - and I didn't want to be the week link in the chain. Some of Nashville's best musicians were playing on this project and I didn't want to do a belly flop off the high diving board in front of everyone else at the pool. Thru God's grace I found my thru the tunes and was then asked to perform with the band in subsequent live performances.
I don't like having to turn pages when reading charts and some of these tunes have 4 page charts. In order to keep from having to turn pages in the middle of a song, I bought a 3 ring binder which will hold 11" x 17" paper and put my charts in there. That way I can see 4 pages at once (see photo below)...
