:welcome: to the forum. It would be nice to talk a bit and introduce yourself rather than just posting a YT link. :wink:

You prefer fingerstyle (like some of us)?

I can't decide which i prefer the most,but i love the sound when you play with fingers,it's very smooth,warm and soft . I love hybrid picking and adding some country sounding licks,i also love to add some jazz phrazing and sounding things in my blues solos ,this is the only one in which i play that much time with only fingers,i was curious and i wanted to do it and see what people thing :) In conclusion i would say that i like to mix various styles of playing and various genres too,in reasonablе borders of course . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUYO5Mp3bgo you can check this,this is maybe the most "main" playing the blues. Do you have your videos somewhere in internet ? If you don't mind i will like to hear your playing :)

I just discovered your "Bulgaria got talent" video - what did the judges say? :dance:
Technically you have it all, much better than I'll ever be, I can't give you any advice there. What you may need to be separated from the other young guitar slingers is something more personal, that's why i like your first video (with fingers) much more - you're on a good way. :bb:

They all liked my performance,the girl was said that i got nice tone,good phrase,that is what i remember,The Actor ( Asen Blatechki) said that it was awesome,Luben Dilov ( the older man ) said that he want to hear something main if i go to the next part of the show and that three people said "YES" only Ico Hazarta ( bulgarian hip hop singer) said that i don't deserve 4 yes-es and he said "No" but he also liked the performance and i went to the next part of the show but it was only dropping out and if you go after that you go to the semi final,but i was dropped out .. and i was only broadcast on the internet page,on the TV my performance was not broadcast ..

Thank you for the kind words ,what it means " slingers" i understand generally what you mean .

:welcome: to the forum Valentin. :D

Sorry - a bit late coming to this - I've been having computer problems. :motz:

What a great piece of playing in the Minor blues video. Very expressive and very moody as well as skilled. I prefer music played with feeling to music just played with technical skill, but when both can be brought to the music like you do that's the best option of all. :clap:

Very fine playing on the Bulgaria got Talent video too. :thumbsup:

Thank you very much ! I think like you,the feeling in music is the most importantly,a guy that for me perfectly brought the two together is Guthrie Govan,such a skilled player,one of my idols .. Also Ritchie Blackmore,Gary Moore,David Gilmour .. and many more,but these are my favorites. And Nuno Bettencord.
