“Smooth Operator” is one of my favorite tunes by Sade. I found a MIDI file of the song and after doing some tweaking to get the right sounds in place removing content I didn’t like and adding some of my own, I picked up my guitars and hit record. I am playing the melody using my Ibanez nylon acoustic/electric guitar. this give the melody a smooth rich sound I love. The solo work was done playing my baby my Fender Stratocaster. This is the first take of the song and I think I will be doing more covers of other great songs in the future.
