    Very nice, Romaine. Your added syncopation gave the waltz a nice sense of swing.

    And what a lovely-sounding guitar!

    Can we look forward to your version of “Rainbow Dreams”?

    Thanks,

    Will

    Romaine, if you ever have the time to tell us the story of your L-5, I would love to hear it.

    I would imagine that in France, these are even more super-rare than they are in North America... as a sax player friend once said about bass saxes, “they are scarcer than rocking horse shit”...

    Thanks guys ! Nice tune "Rainbow dreams" but i should do it with a piano too !

    The L5 is from 34-35, from a collector friend of mine. It's the first acoustic archtop i bought, and the one that drove me into the madness of 30s and 40s acoustic archtops ! Big V neck, but super comfy !!

    Thanks, Romain. What kind of strings do you use?

    Will

    PS after hearing your version of “April Kisses”, I have every confidence that you can play “Rainbow Dreams” unaccompanied, too!
