Hi there !

I´d like to share a bit of the good results from working on the rest-stroke technique.

"Musette for a magpie" is composed by Martin Taylor. I nailed the whole thing in March, then discovered Gypsy Picking in May and re-learned it and rearranged the fingerings a little. Thanks again to Michael, your book helped me a lot !

Comments are welcome, I personally think it´ll take some more time to get this really "fluid" and in better timing.

For the gear I used : Gitane DG 255, Wegen Fatone pick, Neumann TLM 103 microphone

    Well done and a nice melody!

    Can you post a chart or tab?

    Sure ! (and thanks!)

    I couldn´t be bothered to remake it with the new fingerings, but there´s different ways of playing it anyway.

    In Bar 33 it might be a Bm7b5 instead of B°. In the recording it was a bit hard to hear, but Bm7b5 would be more "logical". Both work fine, though...

    Great job Matthias! I think you improved that song by playing it with rest-strokes! As you probably know, Martin Taylor is a free-stroke picker....maybe he should take a lesson with you!

    Got one more fresh out of the oven :)

    I admit that the lead playing is slightly sloppy (some bum notes and quite a few licks are dragging behind the beat....shame on me) I guess it´ll take me another year to really nail this tune, especially at the speed that Romane plays it....that´s out of reach for now.

    But I am kind of proud of the Pompe. I think it swings nicely and has that very subtle upstroke. Hope you´ll enjoy, and don´t hesitate to fire any comments at me.

    Best wishes,
    M.

    Super job on Swing for Nanine!!! Can you forward your backing track? Very nice swing feel and just right for your playing style.

    Thanks!

    This waltz is very nice - never heard it before. Can you also forward the backing track?

    Thanks!
