    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

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    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!
