That is some fine music. I especially like the little syncopated fills you do in between some of the phrases. You have great swing sensibility.

Man! Got that D8 sitting on your lap, no less. I just wish it was on youtube so I could slow it to half speed to learn some of those awesome licks. Guess I'll just have to pause every two bars. Razz Great stuff - inspiring!

Brad: Looks like A6 with an E on top. McAuliffe, maybe?

Yes, it says "Improvising on ’I’ll see you in my dreams’. A6th non-pedal steel."

Realy enjoyed it Niklas. Couldn't be better. I'm learning A6 now and obviously have a long way to go.
