Tasty indeed!
Well, you're just phenomenally musical, no question. You play your classical intro with beautiful expressiveness (I'd like to hear you play some Tarrega some time!), then move into the swing feel incredibly naturally, as thought the two styles were always meant to coexist. The way you play them, they do! Bravo!

I used
to LOVE playing Tarrega. He really knew how to write for the guitar. I'm a little mad at him though- it was his transcription of Malat's "Sereneta Espanola" that started my left hand on this weird nerve problem.I'm really flattered that you like my playing- I am a huge admirer of yours!

Wonderful
playing as always Mark, but also the tone you get is all your own. I loved the classical part at the start and as has been said, the way you just move seamlessly into Jazz, Wonderful, regards M

It's alway great to hear a new one from you Mark.
and this is no exception. Loved the prelude, but it took off hen you got into the jam.

Great sounding as always my friend, and very cool playing.

Thanks for sharing Mark.

Be well and be cool,

I like messing with stuff like this- there are people who do stuff like this WAY better than I do (Martin Taylor,Joe Pass,Lenny Breau,Ted Greene,etc.)I don't think I'm quite at the genius level yet. Thanks for listening to my stuff- I'm in awe of your musicality and production skills!

Mark,
I've come to decide that its not your recordings but my ears that are a little dull (from an audio point of view of course, your playing is NEVER dull!) at times :)

This is really beautiful - not sure what else I can say. Lovely!

Jim Bouchard said 3195 days ago (August 26th, 2008)
delicate, yet forceful
There's such a light touch that the forceful movement of this swinging piece sneaks up on you almost unnoticed, but it's undeniably there. The coordination involved that it takes to play this is one thing, but it's really the style you put into it that impresses me. And I like the guitar slapping, too!

I couldn't even dream how to play like this...

Just pure fantastic, and you have such great timing and are able to make sweet music, although you're using a very advanced playing technique.

BRAVO:)

due to this continuing hyper-sensitivity in my left hand I can only play 1 guitar that doesn't hurt my hand, so having more would be kind of useless. Please don't quit cause I need to steal ideas from you!

Hey Mark
a little over a year ago my hand got so bad I was having a hard time playing at all.. now it seems to be almost normal... a slight occasional twinge is all.. I sincerely hope your hand comes all the way back...

A very nice groove.

I think you should have left the slaps in....

you're a guitar master! great swing, you're playing bass at the same time, and the voicings are incredibly tasty.
makes me want to go get some jazz guitar lessons... I just might do that, though I won't get to your level!
