Many thanks to the amazing guitarist Carl Orr for an enjoyable session in which we covered:
“Birk’s Works” is a minor blues in F and Carl encouraged us not to overthink it and use the F blues scale liberally.
Once the deceptively tricky backing rhythm to “Maiden Voyage” was learned Carl discussed changing the backing groove in order to create a bit more interest. At one point the backing changed to double-time, much to the chagrin of the soloist that had the rug pulled from beneath them.
Many thanks to Carl.
