     People liked very much this tune and when it was replaced 
     by Randy Newman's "It's A Jungle Out There" for the second 
     season many felt really dissapointed.
     It seems that Geissman used an archtop guitar for rythm. 
     Those guitars give a very soft playing and were usually 
     part of the rythm section in old jazz bands. If you want 
     to get that jazzy feel you must hold muted chords in their 
     position and release the pressure while you keep strumming 
     and just press your fingers over the fretboard when chords 
     must ring.

pretty good. Trying to find someone that actually has the chords right. I started, and have the Eb6, but the other chord I'm hearing is still an Eb, just an Eb+ which is similar to the Abm but if you listen close you can hear the dissonance. Another thing I noticed is this sounds like he's using freddy green style voicing's where you usually chop off one of the notes so you only have 3 notes, sometimes 4. For instance those m7-5 chords are crazy and no one would do that, it gets to muddy. Try for instance E-3 D-3 G-3 B-2 for gm7-5, basically the same thing but without the redundant b5th on the A string which will turn the tone into mud. Other than small stuff nice job, good to see someone was able to help me a bit.
