    Hi Jostein, very beautiful "flowing" lines.
    These lines are excellent lines for someone like me to transcribe it.
    Enter YouTube and it's speed reduction ability. At 3/4 it has a moderate flow so it would be my goal to get there. I would start at 1/2, the quality is pretty good compared to many other recordings.
    At 1/2 the lines just fall in my lap, from there it's a days hike up the slope of
    Mt 3/4. From there I will stare up to the summat where you're still breathing fine without a tank of O2.

    And that's the way it is, this day 2019.

    Thanks! I agree, nylon is a different vibe and it works great for jazz. Part of the challenge is the response is a bit slower so playing in fast tempos is a challenge(not only technically). It’s almost like as if you hit a note and it takes longer time for the sound to project and also the note fades out faster.

    Haha, that was actually a bart simpson s quote ! He says i can do it, but i don t feel like it, perfectly knowing he can t do it.

    I can t do it, but i wish i could though. Was that solo improvised ?

    It’s also the Nike slogan as far as I know. It is definitely an improvised solo. I never plan anything ahead when my play. Inserting lick’s and pre-made phrases goes against my whole philosophy- sometimes these type of things can come out, but then it happens more organically.

    Thanks for the kind words! I have never really messed with those YouTube settings. Wondering how his would sound at twice the speed?

    I tried it for kicks.

    At 1.25 you sound like Birelli on a very good day.
    At 1.5 it doesn't sound possible, too fast.
    Forget the rest lol.

    Interesting
