Hey Klaus - nice work! Some of those phrases are spot on and really flow nicely. It seems the only time when they didn't flow was because of a bent note ort a technique that wasn't very comfortable or confident for you....biut I could still hear you doing a good job with it.

For those sections, just slow down the one part that is not easy for you and work on the bend or technique that isn't super fluid and make an exercise of it. Then after spending soem time with it that way, you will clear it all up in no time.

Nice work!

Hi Klaus!

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.

Thanks!!

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!

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!

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!!

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!!
