Just uploaded to Youtube, so it might still be processing..

What the hell is this that I'm playing? :lol: It's my generic jazz-noodle that Ben showed me ages ago. Whatever it actually is I'm probably bastardizing the hell out of, but I'd like to know what song it is so that I can play it the correct way.

Pardon the sloppy picking, as it's early and I have a hangover. :lol:

:lol: Thanks dude! :D If you ever do remember, I'd really like to learn the rest of it. It makes me feel all jazzy and sophisticated. Pass the cognac!

I got so fucking sick and drunk on cognac a few months back. :lol: Felt like Kanye West, swilling that shit.

As to the piece... it sounds familiar, kinda, but I'm stumped.

It kinda sounds like a mutated Count Basie thing, but I can't be sure. I'm pretty sure the meter has been mutated, and the bassline "modernized" with some different inversions.

No doubt at all that the meter is "however I feel like playing it at the moment". I can tab it out (or just make a video and fuck tabs) if you want to fiddle with it.
