well turns out it has been keepin me from getting to sleep tonight so i have decided it is time to fess up.  i am really mccoy tyner.  you know thats why i got a little defensive when mark levine ( aka jazz + ) said i had sloppy technique.   well you know i have always loved this forum and believe it or not even i the great mccoy tyner have learned so many things here.  sometimes i just knew a lot of these things back when i was jammin with john boy.  scot you have done a heck  of a thing here specially for a white boy.  but ya know i want to tell you guys... i never could as mike.  every one keeps asking how to swing and these questions about where to put the accent and stuff.  boy oh boy me and my home boys just sit  here and laugh...  on the floor   man....
guys   white boys can't swing....    cmon  geez
well if feel better y'all know who i really am now but please dont let it be know in the general lounge cause then everyone is just gonna be askin me stupid questions all the time that have nothing to do with the music... like if its true i gotta have ten different woman every night or i just cant get a wink a sleep....    you know i just get tired a explainen every ol thing that goes on in my crib after my gigs.  i still want to talk about giant steps just like you guys even if you never will swing.
