    Fapy's right hand technique is a thing of beauty.
    Reject the null hypothesis.

    That Fapy documentary rocks. Next to the mid-period Waso stuff, to me this is when Fapy was at his strongest. Flip Krajenbrink makes it look so easy! Rhythm guitar and brushes are my favorite rhythm combination, unfortunately it's not used all that much. Still, it's great!

    Thanks for donating it Scot, and thanks for posting it Michael!

    Good stuff indeed; thanks, Scot! Two questions: can someone name the rhythm player for me; and is it possible to download these video files, or are they just streaming (or whatever it's called-I'm still not terribly computer-savvy, sad to say). In the meantime-Michael, you're doing a hell of a job here; you've got both my thanks and congratulations. Keep up the good work.

    Best,
    Jack.

    Hi Jack....The rhythm player is Flip Krajenbrink. I don't know him, maybe Ted can fill in the details.

    The vids are just streaming. I can't distribute copies, sorry.

    Enjoy!

    Hi Jack,
    Hi Jack....The rhythm player is Flip Krajenbrink. I don't know him, maybe Ted can fill in the details.

    Yes indeed, the rhythm guitarist is Flip Krajenbrink, who played in Fapy's band during the mid to late 1980's/early 1990's. He is featured with the band on the albums "Aurore" and "Fleur de Lavende". He's left professional music and is currently the headmaster at a school in Holland. I think he also recorded with one other Hot Club type bands in Holland, but I can't remember for sure.

    Best,

    Ted
