    Hi strat people
    It seems Im in a fusion mode for the moment. Love that easy to reach volume knob available on the strat
    I think it was Gonzo that suggested I worked on making non-ambience videos.
    Thanks, Gonzo
    After trial and error, I have finally found a way to work with the different parts of video/audio, so its more easy for me. I´ve made both leadsheet and backing tracks for this on my YT
    Cheers Uffe

    Hello Uffe,

    This tune is way too short....Once again you have given us all new lines & phrases for us to listen to, that are very pleasing hear. I also liked the space you left before the turn-around, as it then added more depth when you played through it. Thanks for sharing again with us all here !

    Your sound has improved dramatically I think from the last video. Well done.

    Cheers,

    Rastus

    NB. The links to your backing-track, lead-sheets & other videos are very much appreciated !

    Not by train but I was in Aarhus several times. I enjoyed Denmark in my childhood for vacation many times.
    I like the people and the landscapes.
    That song is cool to get the memories back.
    I played a really great Gibson Goldtop in Aarhus in a shop, it was from 69 or 70 but I hadn´t the money back then - I was about 15. Seeing the prices these days it would had been smart buying it. It was a fantastic guitar and I am pretty sure I would have kept it anyway.

    All the best,
    Robin

    Thanks , Missisippi

    Those 2 things are what I work hard with , Thanks

    Thanks Robin
    As always Im glad that you comment on my jazzy playing, as I know you are a true rock&roller, which has my full respect. I guess it could have been Super- Sound you visited. By the way, I bought my first SG Gibson there, but it was in 1976.

    Thanks Stratoskater. Thats the best for me to get back.
    Actually it gives such a relaxation to work on those thing, instead of hunting new smart lines. Just to play what we already got, and make it sound better

    Thanks Moullineaux

    Thanks, Lucky :)

    Great to hear more single note soloing. I didn't know you use a plectrum sometimes.
    You have such a fluid, vocal sound to your soloing.
    I know you play much more harmonically advanced music than Hendrix, but a few of your looping bends had a Band of Gypsys flavor.
    You may be one of the funkiest Scandanavians ever!

    Thanks a lot Mshivy. Im glad you like my single note stuff
    I love to use my herco 75 grey pick for blues and sometimes dunlop 1.5 purple turtle for more jazzy stuff.
    Clapton, Beck, Hendrix and Bloomfield was my first influence , like so many other at that time. Later on I discovered BB, Albert and Freddie

    Brilliant. This was perhaps the most accessible thing you've posted thus far and it was cool to hear this side of your playing. The little nuances you add to your notes are what separate you from slobs like myself. The subtle volume swells were a particularly nice touch. I really like your new recorded sound as well. I'll check out your backing track over the weekend and give it a go.

    Wow! I would love to hear that, Mouse.
    I have a link here for a download of the backing file:

    Honestly, this is why I love this site...having access to so many great players. I never had a huge circle of guitar playing friends so my exposure to other players was fairly limited. Sure, I can bang out a rock cover tune reasonably well but if at any time I start to believe the hype, along comes someone like Uffe who rightly sets me back in my chair and forces me to listen. Many here do this for me (you're one with your originals) and it's a humbling experience but a learning one. I'm not trying to be overly humble here. Uffe is on such a different level than I, I'm not sure we even play the same instrument.

    Yes, I get it. Even if a person became an "expert" at any one aspect of guitar, there are so many different styles that would need work. I don't think any one person can master everything...there's too much. Good on electric rock? How about jazz, country, etc.? Well then, how about slide, finger picking, funk, etc.? Got that down? How about all the same questions on acoustic? How are you on classical guitar? You get the point. On the other hand, we should never get bored.

    Gorgeous, the quality and touch in your hands is such a gift. You get such great tone and are just so darn smooth.
