    very cool William…I remember a guy in the 70’s John Clemmer used to do a lot of that echo stuff.

    Thanks Johnny. Right now I’m working on “Under the Boardwalk”. To my surprise I’m able to keep up with the backing track. Sounds like an oxymoron. Keeping up with a backing track

    Well Done William, thanks for sharing. I love to hear other sax players take time out and record their playing, it just shows how different everyone else sounds.

    I find it very edifying and encouraging to hear you play so well, William. It’s a beautiful air played convincingly. Ya. Do you have another tune for us coming up soon? Or a song suggestion that might be on Johnny’s working list? 🙂 Cheers Mark

    Thanks Ja Br and Mark for stopping by. Well I’m working on “Night Train”. I’m using Johnny’s sheet music with my own bits added to the solo. And I’m working on “Under the Boardwalk” in A major for tenor sax. That puts it in Concert G. I always have “Sweet Caroline” waiting in the wings with “The Power of Love” and “Flash Dance” and a few more. Cheers

    I’m also working on “A Little Bit is Better than Nada’. Written by the late Doug Sahm> Doug has spent a lot of time here in Taos, New Mexico, You can hear it in his music. Johnny might played the sax in Doug’s band with Flaco Jimenez, Freddy Fender and the rest of the band.

    Lyrics

    Met her in a border town
    We proceeded to get down
    She turned me on
    I dropped the telephone
    Moonlight hits the Rio Grande
    And the touch of her hand
    It makes me high
    Like the Fourth of July
    The bad bandido came into town
    But man, I’m gonna hunt that gringo down
    But these words keep ringin’ in my ear
    A little bit is better than nada
    Sometime you want the whole enchilada
    A little bit is better than nada
    A little bit or nothin’ at all
    Said Cancun was not her style
    Turistas there, they drove her wild
    The border’s the place
    Put on a brand new face
    Me and the boys had just hit town
    Shake ’em up and rode ’em down
    I guess it was fate
    I hope I wasn’t too late
    Bad, bad boys was on our trail
    Federales want us all in jail
    But these words keep ringin’ in my ear
    A little bit is better than nada
    Sometime you want the whole enchilada
    A little bit is better than nada
    A little bit or nothin’ at all
    A little bit is better than nada
    Sometime you want the whole enchilada
    A little bit is better than nada
    A little bit or nothin’ at all
    A little bit is better than nada
    Sometime you want the whole enchilada
    A little bit is better than nada
    A little bit or nothin’ at all
    A little bit is better than nada
    Sometime you want the whole enchilada
    A little bit is better than nada
    A little bit or nothin’ at all
