Very enjoyable. I've always enjoyed hearing a Strat playing Jazz and used to go see Wayne Krantz all the time at 55 Bar 20 years ago. Chris Crocco is another one who sounds good on a Strat, too.

Incredible playing and FAT jazz tones - You make that Strat sound like it's got flatwounds!

SUH-WEET!
Thanks so much! I don't have flatwounds, but I am using fairly heavy strings for a strat-011's. I use them on all my guitars. It get's really though to bend on the first string, especially in the upper register(it is much easier on the tele).
I might have to get a better setup on the guitar.

Sheesh Jostein! Such nice playing. And how the heck do you get such a good sound for that out of a strat?

Goes to show how much the fingers influence tone. I would swear those were flats if you hadn't had said otherwise. Again, very nice!

Thanks a lot man! The strat isn't my normal choice, but that particular day I really felt like bringing it.
I am glad you are keeping up the running!
