Hi Gagi, there is a very quick blow 5 before 36 blow..
Not easy to hear but is there.
Thank you !
Hello Mr. Portnoy, here my simplified version of "Juke".
Really nice!! Sorry for the delay in responding, but this sounds great. Only thing I can think of as far as specifics, is mainly relating to your execution of some of the tongue-blocked effects. You are doing them in the right places, just sometimes not as smooth as it can be. Much of that comes down to breath control and smooth tongue movement, and will come better with just practice, or shall I say consistent practice with doing that technique by itself on a daily basis. Small doses, but consistent. As usual, nice work!
Hola, first acoustic attempt, next week hopefully amplified..

Thank you Darron.
Thank you for the kind words Dennis !!!!!!!
Happy New Year..
Great job as usual Klaus!! Bravo! Great feel, nice bends, nice transition to 3rd position, and nice vibrato and tremolo as well.
No big critique, you have clearly done your homework...but two small points to bring up...
- in 3rd position, you can utilize the 3 blow more, in place of the 2 draw. George did use it more (as I did) and the sound is a little different. It also allows you to exhale sometimes when it comes in handy.
- in the last chorus, going back to the theme in 3rd position, the next to last note (between the root notes) in the "theme" riff is a 3 draw, not a 4 blow. Being he equivalent of the 2 blow that I use in 2nd position for the beginning of the song.
Happy New Year to you, and very good job with this!
Nice one !!
Thanks! Really one of my favorite grooves to play with.
Happy New year @ll !! Thank you Dennis.
Love it !!
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!

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!
Klaus, you kick ass on that 3rd position man
Real nice! Geat work, and the phrasing was more fluid for sure....good job!
