    Hi good Strat people
    I thought I would share this for those of you who want to know a bit of how to play wrong ;-)
    There is no backing track, and a new approach is , that I add bendings into chord/melody style.

    Im not around here as much as I want to, due to concert activities, but I feel so gifted to be a part of this gentle and creative forum.

    Cheers Uffe

    Hello Uffe !

    Welcome back, & thanks very much for sharing your "blues" with us. Your new lay-out for the video with sub-titles works well.

    Love those phrases, & the tone from your guitar is warm & gentle as always.

    Ciao,

    Rastus

    Hi Uffe - Thanks for posting this. Having even a little bit of insight into how you go about making your great music is inspiring. Of course I've subscribed. Hope to hear more from you.

    so effortless, or so you make it seem

    I've given up trying to transpose your upside-down style...it was making me dizzy

    If that's wrong, you don't need to be right!
    Very nice, and interesting south paw adaptation. Love the bass line work.

    Every time you post it's like Christmas. Great stuff.
    I don't know if we mere mortals can ever learn what you do though!

    That was good!
    I thought I was hearing a mellow jazz drummer too... Did that come through the amp, or directly from your pick attack to the microphone?

    Welcome back Uffe, your playing inspires a lot of us. And for you to share your extraordinary gifts to people is really very kind of you. Watching the video while reading the caption do help me to understand a little bit of the mechanics of your playing and it might be a good idea to try some of your techniques in the future. :)

    Thanks Rastus. I really like the fact that we actually dont need to find more than the 12 notes, but strive to get that notes, few or many we love, to sound the best possible, no matter if we are beginners or pros.


    Hi Barb. THANKS :)



    So nice of you , Mouse. You know that respect for what you are able to do , goes back from me to you


    Hi Albala. Thanks :) I would never blame you . I know its tricky, but maybe there are few ideas to get inspired from even though.


    Thanks Dueducks. Yes the bass line is the DNA of that tune, so I worked out a way to keep it at least on the start of the melody

    Thanks Amstratnut. You know I like your playing so much too

    Thanks Mshivy. You don´t need to. You have your thing going. I´ve seen your posts, you cant hide it :)

    Thanks montemerrick. I really need to go and see your post. Im exited to see how you improved . You have your Missisipi sounds down so perfect , but I also saw new things coming before I got too busy

    Thanks Robin . Im so glad, you take your time on me, even though you come from another style.

    Thanks Perttime. Its all me sitting next to the Camera microphone.

    Thanks a lot !

    ...and Doglet, You don´t need to , your creations is a goldmine in this forum. THANKS !!

    My thanks goes back to you for such a nice comment, Ditchgator !

    Hi Wiry. Thanks a lot.
    What yo uwrite is just spot on for what I want with this post .
    Looking forward to digging into your last posts

    So nice of you . Thanks , JimmyJazz
