Hi Tim and forum members:

Since you posted your excellent lesson on legato and giant steps, I thought I would post a chorus and ask for feedback. Trying to develop my legato technique with a fingerstyle technique. Much appreciated, as always!

Hi Tom,
Thanks for the post. Sounds excellent. I like the fingerstyle approach. Have you heard Nelson Veras? If not, look him up and check out what he is doing with fingerstyle. Very inspiring.
I liked the chorus. The phrases are very nice. As you continue to work on this, try to create more variety by adding: ascending and descending phrases. A combination of linear phrases along with arpeggio phrases. Perhaps a bit more vibrato (just a personal preference).
You are developing some nice language for improvisation. Nice!
Tim

Thanks, Tim. The insight and specificity of your feedback has helped me immeasurably. I really appreciate it.

Nelson Veras is incredible:

Hi Tom,
Great!
Thanks for posting the video. I am actually playing in a two guitar quartet with Nelson and Stephane in Paris in a couple of weeks. These guys are great.
Best,
Tim
