Monica just posted her take for the competition. She chose a very good way of keeping phrasing / melody as a absolute priority smile.gif She's getting better and better smile.gif We're working together on her playing skills - mostly on adding colors and dynamics smile.gif She's doing great and making really nice progress smile.gif

Probably 60 seconds was the limit but if somebody had an idea for a kick-ass 10 seconds solo then it still goes ok with the competition terms ha ha smile.gif))

Right now I saw your post and for a minute I forgot all the words in English biggrin.gif Was something unexpectedly and yes Darek, You have right I was too shy to post it by myself laugh.gif To be completely honest, in my soul I know very well how long it’s the way until I will be proud to my solos.

I really thank you for your big support, for your kind words and for all your time spend to working of my playing issues. The fact that we have a similar sense of melodic is a huge advantage for me. You understand exactly what I want to tell in my improvisations.

I will try to do my best with my undying determination smile.gif

Thank you very much and I'm really glad you like it.

I don't know why competition is called 60 seconds huh.gif The initial track had 60 seconds but there was 5 seconds pause until start and 5 seconds pause at the end. So I cut pauses wink.gif

Thank you and I really appreciate your comment because I admire your playing style.

When you asked me about news and told me that you'd like to hear my take for Wallimann contest was a pretty bad version. I'm glad you think that there are improvements in the final version smile.gif I know your opinion and I really appreciate your honesty.
Darek try to make improvements in my style of playing, but unfortunately can't make miracles in a very short time biggrin.gif
Thank you Gab for your thoughts smile.gif

Ha ha! biggrin.gif Miracle You say...Miracles happen but usually it's all just about some hard work smile.gif And You're on the good path with it smile.gif Keep it the way You do and it's gonna be fine smile.gif

If You even think that people are always fully satisfied with their solos than You absolutely wrong biggrin.gif It happens sometimes but usually we feel we could do something better smile.gif

What a great solo, I think it is perfect, your tone is very creamy and the phrasing is ethereal. Two thumbs up. smile.gif

The part with hard work, actually in my opinion is the easy part for me because this thing depend only on me.
The miracle that I would like to happen for me, would be like in 24 hours to be able to play many technical things laugh.gif

I always thought that a lot of guys are very satisfied about they solo smile.gif

Thank you very much. By the way, you made a great job with the last lesson of Darek "Metalcore Chops #2". You moved very fast and in couple of days you done it. I was impressed wink.gif

Wow....you used big words and I'm not usual with that. I really thank you from my heart for your kind words smile.gif It's a joy for me to know that people like my composition style and this thing motivate me to work much harder and prove that I can do better wink.gif

Thank you, Taka. I just tried to feel the music not to be careful where I put the fingers, as I usually do smile.gif For that nice dynamics, Darek has all the merit wink.gif
