    I actually learned this one about 6 months ago but never recorded it.  Was still lurking, not recording or
    posting.  Kinda glad I didn't because I can play it a whole lot better now.  Here goes.

    Thanks for making the effort to record and post! That was awesome! I'm slowly working on #4 and realize it may be 6 months before I'm ready to give it a try. Great playing!

    Very nice Kevin! Thanks for sharing that.
    It's always fun to hear other people's little twists and nuances of expression on this one.

    Great job Kevin.

    I don't know how you nail those triplets consistently like that bud. They sound absolutely killer!

    Nicely done.

    Made it sound easy. Played those fast measures clean and effortlessly to my ears.

    Thankyou Ivan and Will.  Have been in that woodshed a whole lot over the last year Ivan, plus all the classical training in the past doesn't hurt those triplets either.  Playing effortlessly only happens in my dreams Will.  I love that dream.  Bet you guys do too.

    Very nicely done KevinS.  That was inspiring to listen to.  I hope to join your ranks with playing like that some day.

    Thanks Dennis R. That's really nice of you to say. Just keep plugging away at it and good things will happen.  And keep plugged into this forum. All the folks here really keep me inspired to keep working too.

    Very well done Kevin!  Great job on all of the tough sections.  Of all the solos I've learned from Griff's courses, this one is still my favorite.
