Chris,

I really enjoyed this! I like the chord progression. You mention the Yamaha QY700, but you didn't list any MIDI tracks, I'm assuming you played some of the song (vibes?)... is that correct?

Very nice "chill" music! I'm sitting here with a fresh cup of coffee tapping my foot to the music!

Very nice and very smooth. This has the vibe of a PG Music tutorial video. I think it would be a great song for PG Music to feature on their Face Book page.

Hi Pat

The melody is played with my Yamaha QY700 which is a midi music machine. I've used the orgel. That's a kind of music box.

Thanks for all your nice comments. Chris

I enjoyed listening to your composition, Chris.

Although I don't play this style of music day to day, I do appreciate excellence in music composition and execution, regardless of style. And this composition delivers, which is a testament to your excellence in artistry.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
