A really cool jazz song. Unique jam session feeling.

Many thanks for this! To my ears there was some slight problem with tuning/pitch but I just went ahead anyway and aimed to create a “live” jam vibe. Glad you liked!

Well you captured the very essence of a live jam. A very rewarding listen.

Man, I like it, it’s great. Shame you had to play along with my solo. I will upload the raw channel tracks now, so you can cut the solo out if you want.

Thanks for this! I can’t tell you how much I like your bass playing! Would like to do some moody impro with acoustic guitar+volumepedal+copycat delays in the style of John Martyn & Danny Thompson. I guess something a bit less busy would give me more possibilities, but y’know, I just had to jam along with this! Couple of things: can you keep all samples as “dry” as possible? Also, I wasn’t sure if I was totally in pitch with your track—I mean, just a fraction—this made me check my tuning and I seemed to be in concert pitch (?). But playing along with your bass was a huge pleasure for me—you’ve got a superb sound and technique! Thanks again and best wishes. Awesome bass!

Hi there and thanks for adding the extra stems. I actually downloaded them and began working on a new mix but I hit a problem: there seems to be some “leakage” on all the stems — some other audio in the background — I thought I could either mask it or just live with it, but it’s bugging me too much so I gave up! That’s a shame because your playing is so supercool and I really love it! Perhaps next time, if you want to, you could record and upload “dry” (no delays/reverbs) and “clean” (no leakage from other sound sources) stems? I’d be sure happy to play along and try a remix. Thanks again and with sincerest best wishes!

I tried uploading them again, using a different way to export. Hopefully there are no leaks now. I also deleted all the (after)effects.

I might need a new mixing programm…

Best wishes!
