    Re: The Floyd Cramer Blues

    Thanks for the compliments Gary & David. I wrote the basics for this tune a long time ago and never really thought about what I was doing. I played it as a solo piano number for a few people and did some blues runs with it.

    Recently I listened to Floyd Cramer's Our Last Date and realized how much I was borrowing his technique so I thought I would give it a smooth country shuffle feel.

    It was a lot of fun to do and beats the heck out of having to play Tiny Bubbles.

    I'm not so familiar with Mr. Cramer, but that's one of the great things about Garritan's products! Great work with this rendition! The music is awesome... what smooooth piano.

    Thanks SeanHannifin.

    Mr Cramer is a Nashville legend as well as playing on some of the great early rock recordings including those by The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and the historic early Elvis Presley RCA recordings.
