    Very excellent playing Ed!

    Here is a clip of Tommy I just got the other day:

    Tommy at Berklee

    Fun to watch him play. I'd say you did quite well and I like the structure of the tune you were playing. Was it one of his or an interpretation?

    Was my misguided attempt at pulling off Angelina.
    I'm up to my eyeballs getting my right hand together.

    No I hadn't. Great clips Ed! That Birdland was smoking! :) It seems that working on right hand technique really should be an ongoing thing for me. I end up starting and stopping and in the end, I really just need to make it a part of a daily routine. Very inspiring to hear you working with your RH. It's something that can really elevate one's playing IMO.

    The right hand can be a real bear to get together, especially when your left hand is already there. You might check out some of the classical guitar books/vids, such as Scott Tennant's, as they'll have tons of exercises for developing independence and suggestions for ways to bring out the melody over the accompaniment. Also, "Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine" has several transcriptions each month that can be fun to work through.

    Sounds good so far!

    Except classical right hand doesn't apply to where I'm headed with that...

    Well, the technique will be a bit different, but the exercises in independence and bringing out the melody should still apply.

    Like I said in another post, my comments are worth what you paid for them. Tough crowd today!

    Actually no...the technique is way different..Flamenco technique is actually closer. My point is that I'm not worried about bringing up the melody more than rather the percussive part of the rhythm.

    Not a touch crowd, but I really didn't ask for advise.

    OK, I guess I took, "I'm up to my eyeballs getting my right hand together," a different way than you meant it. Just trying to give some advice based on my own experience. :)

    You did. :)
    Here's the deal, I don't do advise...I'm the king of trial and error andd figguring out how to make stuff work for me.

    Same thing here with my golf swing.;) The more advice I incorporate, the worse I become.

    Hi Ed,

    Here is a clip of Angelina I split out of a Woodsong radio show for you. He uses a capo on the second fret and probalby alters some bass tunings but I'm not all that sure what he is doing.

    Angelina

    Enjoy!

    It's pretty amazing to watch his technique. You could not tell it was hybrid by listening! He is so very fluid with his approach that I'm sure he could swap techniques and you could not tell the difference unless you saw it. I'm pretty sure he could do it all.

    I'm planning on seeing him in San Francisco at a concert in January. Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet this great player!

    Quite a lesson to watch this guy in action!

    I have to admit I didn't even know who he was until Brett garsed hipped me to him when I was in Australia last March.
