I picked up a copy of the original 1970 sheet music for "Borsalino" on eBay. The middle section after going to Dmaj7 is quite different in the original score than what you play, especially the melody and chord progression leading to the resolution, before restarting that main "Borsalino" theme. Just curious how the underlying melody and substitute/embellished chords came to you - did you just hear it in your head as you played? Just really curious about the creative process.

I hope this email finds you well.
I am seeking a market for my lyrics or partner with a melody maker
As a competent lyricist I am seeking to develop a mutually beneficial, ethical song writing partnership with a like minded melody maker; someone who can compliment my strengths and compensate for my weaknesses, or simply find a market for my lyrics “Luck and chance happen to all men”.
My words move away from the generic songs that have been typified millions of times. The lyrics are penned in a slightly abstract manner, provoking thought and allowing individual interpretation. These are simply stories of people and situations of everyday life from things I hear and see and memories of the past.
Musically, my skills are limited to the drums, singing was abandoned in the school choir. So I’m unable to put melodies to my lyrics.
Would you be kind enough to provide the most suitable email address so I may attach some sample lyrics?
I look forward to hearing you soon.

Please, please, please... hold a workshop at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco in February 2015. I attend every year you hold one and I bring fellow fans (my treat). You are a great teacher and inspiration, and the intimate setting is worth three times the asking price. Best quote from a colleague: "I don't know whether to redouble my efforts or just give up... he blows me away!" When you played "Amazing Grace" last year your descending progressions literally brought tears to my eyes. I have attended Robben Ford's, Alex DeGrassi's and Mark Hanson's workshops... yours is the best!
ADMIN: We will!!

Just wanted to let you know that I made the trek from Vancouver to Revelstoke to see you in May, and simply had to see you perform again!
Will be driving down to Spokane for the show on the 24th.
Looking forward to it!!

You signed my guitar in Pécs, Hungary in April. I am very grateful and I feel lucky . In return I’m sending a video of your composition played on my Furch guitar.

My name is Jamie Willard, I have been a fan of yours for many years. I'm sure you don't remember, but I played for you at your workshop in Skaneateles the day before your concert at the Center for the Performing Arts in Syracuse, NY in 2008. You took me aside after I played and spoke many words of encouragement to me and even sent me an email a month or so later. You told me two things I have held close to my heart since then, "Never Give Up" and "Trust In Him" (Jesus). I have since played 3 small European tours and many shows in the USA. My question is, will you be doing a Workshop/Clinic anytime before your show at The Oncenter Crouse Hinds Theater, Syracuse, NY Tue, Sep 16, 2014 07:30 PM? Sorry to be so long winded, I know how busy you are, but I hope you can find a few moments to reply.
Your friend, fan, student and brother in Jesus. With much love and respect,

We are 3 Aussies that recently moved to Bozeman. Just saw you were playing at live at the divide-you will love it! Surprise-surprise it's sold out! Would love to see you again! Any idea how we can score some tickets? Trade for some fresh trout, home cooked meal if you had time or just $?? If you can help great if not have a super time in Bozeman(it's a top spot) and we'll be listening!!
