Hi Andreas, My name is Toby and first of all I've got to say I love your playing. Absolutely fantastic!
I'm the same age as you and play here in New Zealand for a living so if you ever decide to come down under for a holiday or a gig I'd be happy to show you around
Anyway, I am currently trying to work through the tune you recorded on "Young Jazz Guitarist", "My Kind of Bebop" and have run into a few problems regarding fingering and picking technique.
Right at the intro of the head with the piano player during the Bmaj7 to B11(just before you change to the Ebmaj9) you play a run and I'm not sure if you are playing a swept arpeggio or using pure alternate picking. The little run outlines a B11 starting off the 7th(Ab) then C,Eb,G,Bb,Ab.
I'm sorry I'm having to explain it to you this way but I don't have any Tab software.
I'm just wondering if you play that run as a maj7 arpeggio using sweep picking say from the Ab on the A string or you use alternate picking starting from the D string. Basically I'm just not sure of the fingering and picking you would use for this run.
The other run I'm having trouble with is again during the head when you go to the C#minor section. Yo play an E maj7 arpeggio using some picking method on the way up(alternate or swept, not sure??) and then during the F#dom you play a Eb triad run, again I'm not sure if you use any sweeps or just alternate.
Sorry this is a long winded way to go about asking you some simple questions. If I have'nt explained things clearly enough I'll re-post with track times where the runs occur.
If you get time to answer this thank you in advance. Keep up the great playing and it would be good to see you play here in NZ some time.
