    Ridiculously good lines, great ideas, great tone - better than I could do, really. My only problem is what you're playing doesn't seem to relate to the time on the track.

    Haha Thx a lit guys.
    Yep the timing is right out haha. I really find bossa's hard to solo over, they seem much more exposing to your melodic skills. You have to know as well how to 'float' over the harmony otherwise it sounds like your just playing chord scales.
    Right so I'm working on " moon send sand ' right now. I will definitely establish the time a bit better or at least try lol
    Thx again

    That's great playing, what are you using for backing tracks?

    Really nice, you really bring out the changes well in some places there. The timing seems pretty decent on a lot of the very straight 16th note stuff to me - it's just the bits where you veer towards an 8th note triplet feel where it strays a bit.

    I listened to a couple of your videos. Very nice work in general. I love Wave, such a great harmonic flow on a long song form.
