Hi Thrip!

That was great, please tell me you're a pro!

BTW, how long you been playing the guitar/gypsy jazz? If I could sound anywhere near like you I'll be more than happy:-)

Thanks Thaddeus.

I suppose you would call me semi-pro seeing as I have a full time job (unfortunately) as well as gigging quite a lot.

I have been playing guitar for about 30 years, at least 15 of which I have been obsessed with Django. Don't let that depress you too much though, for the amount of time I've been playing I should be a lot better!

Yes it does seem like a long time particularly when you consider that Fapy said he learned to play like Django in 1 hour. :roll:

Yes, but the first 30 minutes were the hardest.

Great, I've liked it a lot, sincerely.
Anyone can explain me how to publish my recordings on a website without paying? A sort of personal website where the guys can download the pieces or a place to put some stuff for some time.
Thanks to all

This is lovely playing, and tone. It's also the only piece I've not got from the Unaccompanied Django book. Now at least i've hears a version of it to learn from.

What gee-tar you playing? I'm still bashing this stuff out on my takamine.
