Default I Can Only Imagine

Hello there AGF friends,

I wanted to share my tribute arrangement of "I Can Only Imagine" for two friends who have passed. I played this song at both of their funerals (I accompanied a vocalist) and was inspired to create a reflective solo arrangement. The full story is on the youtube post. Hope you all like!

Thanks so much everyone for all the kind words on this arrangement. It was quite a long labor of love to get this worked out. I really appreciate the support here!

reeve21 - glad you liked the guitar sound. I found mixing the m1 with that sticky Dean Markley pickup on the bridge sounded pretty nice. By themselves the pickups didn't sound that great, but when I blended the two, each one kind of covered up the weaknesses of the other.

Hey good to see another Detroiter here! Yes I play the occasional jazz gig. I'm in a big band and we play at the Royal Oak Middle School auditorium - it's a pretty nice room. I do some smaller group stuff as well every once in awhile.
