i think it sounds really nice....alot more breathing in this one than in the last one....sounds much less forced....i do have a couple of questions.....how much of this is improved and how much is written..and also these are really nice backing tracks...where did you get them? Anyway, very good job and look foreword to hearing you progress more.

thanks of checking it out. about the improvisation. the licks are mostly ones that i have had or made. but i don't plan out when i play them i just have lying around. about the backing tracks..jamey aebersold books. And if you go on your music download program if you have one. just type jamey aebersold and you'll get a bunch of tracks.

Hi youngnicolas,

good stuff. Would you be kind enough to share with us what equipment you use: guitar, amp, guitars strings, and recording device.

I really enjoy your work. Keep it up.

Youngster,
You kick ass my man, I second the last guys question what kind of guitar etc. Also, are you reading a sheet on this, or are you strictly playing by ear after listening to a recording? Good stuff, keep it up... Cool

Hi Youngnicolas.

I`m listening to your take now. It sounds really good, you`re heading in the right direction Smile
But I have some thoughts on your playing.
Better swing, than your last take. But you`re playing a bit too much behind the beat sometimes. Maybe this has to do with the tempo?
My advice would be to practice more of a "staccato" way of picking. Pick hard with your right hand and keep your left hand relaxed. And be really aware of where you are playing regarding the beat.
Some albums you should check out:
Hank Garland, jazz winds from a new direction
Joe Pass, For Django
Pat Martino, We`ll be together again, Exit and Conciousness.
George Benson, Weekend in LA, Off the top (Jimmy Smith).

Do you have any of these lines written out? Where did you learn them? From your description of what you played, you seem to be telling us that you use a bit of a cut and paste approach. I must state that your sound is smoother than that approach usually creates.

guest... i don't have any lines written out.. i mainly just listened to version like crazy and took licks from it. but if you heard the licks you wouln't recognize them right away because i tried to make them my own....hope that helps and makes sense.
