Hi Roy,

That was a real nice performance of that number, which is one of my favourite songs, the organ voices that you used are very very nice and it was a pleasure to listen to

All the best, Brian007

Hi Roy,

This is a tune I have always liked, and it sounded good with your 'mellow sounding' organ. But the way you played it (the 'phrasing'), with the emphasis on the notes in the first verse being different to the second, made me look up the WORDS for this song.

    Blue moon
    You saw me standing alone
    Without a dream in my heart
    Without a love of my own

    Blue moon
    You knew just what I was there for
    You heard me saying a prayer for
    Someone I really could care for

And that's it in a nutshell. A 'single' note at the end of each line of the first verse; and a 'repeated' note in the second (to fit the words).

As I don't read the music and never know the words of a song, I never get the emphasis of the notes in the right places. What I play is never the first or the second verse, but an 'average' of all the verses, and I play it as an 'instrumental'. We once had a saxophonist staying at our Hotel and he said he couldn't listen to me play because I never follow the WORDS of a song. Every song has a 'story', which is told in the words. He said he always played the melody on his saxophone as if he was singing the words. So the way I played, with the emphasis in all the wrong places, drove him scatty!

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That give me a good grounding. Cheers.
