    Thorsten-

    its insane that you learned how to play the guitar the way you did. Did you ever consider (obviously not at this point in time, but at some point) switching to 'normal' means?

    about your trick bag,

    you played it well, there are little mistakes and a few changes here and there... but I can tell you are a solid player.

    I was mostly impressed by how articulate the last harmonic minor run was, really nice time and articulation on that run. I can immediatly tell how well you can play from a run like that.

    Hi bet23,

    thanks a lot! Glad you like my playing.

    I know thereīs some things in the recording I could have played better, of course this always sounds like a cheap excuse, but I didnīt have the time to practice it full on and for a piece like the Trickbag you really need the time. But I recorded it anyway, makes you realize what to work on.

    Iīm selftaught, so nobody told me to change the strings. Since Iīm lefthanded I just did what felt naturally to me. I later realized that you would normaly change strings on a lefthanded guitar but I already had played a couple of years, got used to it and decided to go on like this.

    Eric Vandenberg did an article about me some time ago, you might wanna check it out for more info: http://www.ibreathemusic.com/article/54

    Thanks
    TK

    maybe thats why this conversation got out of hand in the first place, its a matter of perpective. Ive been around many incredible players in the past few years. Some of the most absurdly gifted players in the world.

    So, maybe Im a bit out of touch with the level of guitar playing that most people face and hear on an everyday basis.

    By the way, as long as Thorsten is willing to do it, thereīll be another special on him once the "Code Of Perfection" album comes out... Iīd love to get the inside scoop on that album and how it came to be, plus some exclusive excerpts, transcriptions and whatever else we can come up with...
    Canīt wait for it to be released, should be amazing
    Eric

    why do you think Im a brilliant player? I never said anything that even resembles that... I havent played guitar in months, I spend most of my time composing...

    again, this isnt about me, it never was about me...

    and the brilliance isnt AT berklee, because most of the players are terrible here...

    but, around boston, and all the artists that I get to see perform here...

    Ive went to about 100 shows and recitals last year alone, music is all I do... again, maybe its a matter of perpective.
