    Gorgeous! Taste, tone, timing...what more does any one want? Great vibrato! And I loved the way you played the changes while still sounding blusey.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for your kind words. Those are important 3T's for me.

    Taste, Tone, timing..... touch... and all that.

    I don't have too much licks so I really into more expression
    on each note. I am still working on my vibrato. Thanks!
    I think my vibrato is improved than that now. It's really difficult
    to play soft (left fingers) and have good vibrato.

    This slow blues is my original tune. Most blues go around regular
    changes... so this song strat with iv chord instead of i chord.

    I love jazzy sound and changes... but blues feeling is most important
    factor in my playing. Without blues.... bluesy feeling... sound
    makes me play.

    Thank you so much!

    PS, Please check Earl Hooker's "Two bugs and a roach"
    jazzy blues, great feel. I have learned from this record a lot
    about TONE... also.. B.B. King's "Blues is king" I could play these
    records in my head from any songs, any speed.. I have listened
    soooo many times. Listening is another important part!!!
    Intense listening session, same record over and over.... until
    you can hear the B side from A side!

    That was great! Love the tone, love the blues. Really liked the "feel" of that.

    Thank you so much for your words!

    I really like that.

    We all have same type of gears and technique, knowledge of chords,
    basic pentas.... so I am glad that my feel was played through my
    playing. This is really my passion about playing music with feel.

    Thanks,


    Tomo
