John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, Jeff Beck, Chet Atkins etc. I've studied Jazz books for years but it seems it never reaches my fingers. I play one jazz piece for years and it still isn't good enough to perform. I have a one man band I call myself the Drifter. I play originals and a lot of Hendrix. I also have play along to music I recorded in the studio. Music from the 20's to the present. I have played professionally but now its difficult just finding anywhere to play. Thanks for the licks they sound great. Reply Great lick, thanks! I would love to see more of this! Regards! Reply Thanks for your feedback Agustin!
