    It takes a great touch and feel to get that bounce, (slap,) happening on a guitar's little strings, no less to sound so crisp and warm while doing it.

    Nice moves, Tomo.

    Hi Jim,

    You are too kind. Overall I rush my tempo if you listen it.

    When I make those sound clips, usually first one is really good.
    Being busy... I am lazy... just record once or twice... so
    this one truly sloppy .

    It's funny part is... I don't really practice funk stuff. mostly jazz.
    I should.

    Thanks,



    Tomo

    Thank you so much for your kind words.

    I like to do this for my timing, touch and groove. It's not so much about fast playing or just techinique.
    It's about both hands timing and subtle nuances. You are right about. You have to play light touch
    and need to work on left muting as well.

    I like this groove as well as swing groove. I think I am really into rhythm guitars in general.
