Eventually down the line I'll have to record some blues/jazz song covers along with my original work for music school auditions cds

I need one slow/ballad, one medium tempo, and one fast tempo jazz standard and 2 blues covers

any suggestions?

I'm a big Scofield fan so I was thinking about covering his version of Alfie for the slower/ballad song, and I'm also a big Vaughan fan so I'd want to do Lenny maybe as one of my covers, what do you guys think?

thanks in advance

hey man whats up?
i would say definetaly lenny. And if you sing do georgia on my mind, actually it would be pretty cool to play the melody line though. And im sure they would love it if you played scofield. And do not do giant steps, haha thats the most played jazz song haha. good luck mike

Jazz Medium Tempo: Summertime, Stolen Moments

Up Tempo: Mediterranean Sundance
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
