RE: RE: zen and the fluent music

Because I've grown weary of pretty....I've played diatonically for the
last 25 years as a guitarist,  part diatonic blended with "outside" in
the last 5, and now I'm pretty much thinking chromatically when I
improv....no key. It's just a personal quirk of mine at this point in
the game. Who knows, maybe in another 5 years, I'll be playing noise. :)

I can create indefinity>>
