Happy New year @ll !! Thank you Dennis.
Love it !!
Sorry for the delay!! Happy New Year!
Really nice work here with the patterns, notes and techniques. Thanks for posting.
The biggest area for improvement to my ears would be now just paying more in the groove and a little behind the beat on some phrases. Once in a while you will jump ahead with your phrasing and the feel of the lick won’t be right (although the notes and technique may be). For improving this I would suggest listening along with me playing the piece and count the beat as you listen to me play the phrases on harp, and really burn in your brain where some of these phrases begin and end in conjunction with the beat and the groove...this way they will have the correct feel. Your work is paying off - nicely done!
O.k thank you Dennis !
As usual, good work here. Two quick things (I'm sure you know them though, as you always improve well over time with your uploads).
- Smoother transitions from one hole to the next
- be very careful to make sure you are raising that 3 draw note ALL THE WAY up when on the I chord, even during the vibrato...meaning when the vibrato is not bending the note, you want the truly unbent note. That was the biggest thing that stuck out to me, because the 3 draw natural (unbent) is part of the I chord, and part of why I played it for this song, to "play the changes" more.
Thank you Dennis ! "Only" two weeks of practice, next one will be better.
...even more impressed now!!
Nice work as usual Klaus!
Most of those runs are pretty fluid, but there were some places where either you run out of breath or the phjrasing gets off track slightly (usually with the chord accents). Pay attention to the phrasing when I play the chord accents (the phrasing is particularly important for those parts as well). Nice work on the entire peiec though, and I know by your hisyory, this will only be getting better very soon!
One year later:
Thank you Dennis ! Booked my flight so see you live on stage in Madrid in june ;-))
Looking forward to seeing you there!!
VERY nice work Klaus! Clean octaves, great execution on the licks, all around great. Thumbs Up!! If you want small things to work on, it's mainly the control of microbends on hole 3 during first section in 2nd position, and further bends on 3 draw in the 3rd position section...VERY good job!
Real nice! Geat work, and the phrasing was more fluid for sure....good job!
Wow love this song -
al i have to say: let that boy boogie-woogie
It's in him and it got to come out !!
Thanks Klaus!! Hope you enjoy playing it!
Thank you, will work on it - step by step.
Wish you a very good time in Norway !!
As far as the legato thing goes, practice NOT stopping your breath from one note to the next...just going from one note to the next note while stil breathing into the next note. It makes the phrases much smoother. I don't do it all the time, but you want to be able to do it so everything is not chooppy and stacatto. Keep up the good work!
Good work and the trills sound excellent!! Bends and execution of licks and patterns is nice. Two things come to mind for further focus...the chords in Chorus 3 should be more in time, and the notes in some of the phrases throughout should be strung together more "legato" - meaning played one after the other without stopping or articulating in between, which makes for smoother phrases and less stacatto attack on the individual notes. Just breathe from one not to the next in some of these phrases....again, nice work!
Very good, real nice work on this song! Much of this was spot on, nice job! A few places, the only critique would be to get a cleaner articulation and more of a scoop/dip on some of the notes, or smoother phrasing in some of the end choruses, but very nice work on it, and I can tell you put some time into!!
Thank's Dennis, its a great piece of work ! It's very good to practice Rhythm and Breath control..Saludos from Tenerife..
Thank You!! Yes, it is very important to practice rhtyhm playing which will help you learn to keep better time if you do it often and correctly!
Great work!! Nice timing and articulation with the rhythm, really good!!
Ivan - Sounds Great !
Quick one - Suitcase is packed:
Great work with this one also! Just as in the other piece, the next step would be a little more finesse and smoothness with the notes and especially the bends, but very good job on this. On some phrases the timing is a little off, but you still kept up with the groove throughout the piece. Thanks!!
Not perfect - but now i'am one month out for HOLIDAYS ;-))
VERY good!! Real nice work there Klaus! The next step is to just work on finessing the bends a little more so thay are smoother and less quick...and just smoother transitions overall in some of the phrases....but that is VERY good! Great job, and I'm looking forward to the next version! Right on...
