Actually, Smokey--I don't know why you don't play it sans singer--since it  
sounds SO GOOD on a chromatic. This is one of MY songs as well (although of 
 course you're light-years ahead of me on a chrom)...
I'd love to see a video of you playing this song with a good group of  
musicians backing you. The chromatic beCOMES 'the voice' and can be almost  as 
effective as a Sax or vocalist on this great song.
I do agree: not for a diatonic unless they're along the lines of  someone 
as good as Jason or play valved or specially tuned diatonics. It  HAS to be 
melodious and is simply perfect for a chrom.
Just my 2cents, but there's no reason a good chromatic player couldn't make 
 this a great backdrop for this Wedding.

A popular request at the gigs. But we only do  it when we have a singer. ( 
a good singer). Easy on a chromatic..never tried it  any other way. I play 
diatonic but I don't think this is one for that approach.  Sort of like 
playing Georgia on a chromatic.
