    I think you sound great! You have a real swingin' feel, and a great melodic sense--and I listen to a ton of this stuff! Boy, if this is something you say you just dabble in, I'd be curious to hear the rest!

    Wow - great feel! I wish I could be that "not any good at it"! ;)

    Really Nice!

    You obviously listen to the 'cats'.

    Reminds me of Mark Stefani's playing, and Pat Martino's double stops...

    Thanks everyone. I listened a lot to Charlie Parker when I was younger. I need to practice leaving more space though - I tend to play with not enough pauses I think? Sounds a little "stressed" to me, and that's because I don't feel comfortable playing this at this time. Hopefully more practice will help!

    Thanks everyone! I will keep practicing more jazz.

    Tomo, I am glad you liked it - you are such a great player yourself.

    I didn't make the backing track; I found it on a guitar backing track website. In fact, I found it a bit "stiff" to play along to.

    nice chops, great tone. what's the problem? backing tracks are never as much fun as real people but it didn't seem to slow you down any. yessir i like it.

    Fantastic playing! Well, you are great player! I am getting a bit comfortable... I still need to kick my butt myself!

    I saw the link after... Thanks for your thought on backing tracks... it's best to make comping by yourself... I just play melody.. solo by myself without any backing.. more choices on chord changes...

    Enjoy!

    Very good playing!

    I know what you mean about practice leaving spaces, that's what I have to practice on too, and I find it very important. (You do sound great though, and nothing sounds unnatural, everything sounds musical!!)

    Hi,

    I think this is just great. Swinging and with interesting phrasing. I rarely listen to clips more than twice but I have listened to yours now 5 times and it's going into my iPOD at the soonest possibility.

    The best aspect of the clip is that it made me happy.

    Please keep posting!

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Thank Hottub, Strattitude and Mats! Encouraging to hear comments like these!

    Mats, you have such fantastic backing tracks. Is it okay with you to grab some from your website and post on forums like this one, acknowledging you as the author of the BT, of course?

    That was outstanding. Had a really nice feel to it and seemed to fit the track perfectly.

    Hej Robert,

    I'd love for you to do some takes on my BTs and post them here. That's a good way for me to learn some new stuff.
    If you haven't already, check out my new BT site at:

    Cheers,
