Subject: If i could
Category: Specific Tunes
From: Abdel Ahmadi (Washington, DC/Morocco)

Salam Pat, Your song 'If i could' has always managed to stir things up inside me. Do you remember when you wrote it and what you were experiencing at that stage of your life. the song is so alive. i don't know how to say it. If i only could.

Pat’s Answer:

halle koum Salam(?) Abdel! (you know what i am trying to say!)

anyway, "if i could" is one of the few songs that i have ever written that is about -something-. it is dedicated to the musician that had maybe the biggest effect on me as a guitar player - and that was wes montgomery. i always wished i had had the chance to tell him how much i love his playing and music.
