Beautiful performance, Kevin!

I can hear the "carbon" in the treble strings.....bright and even sounding. Works well in the music of Bach. When you use nylon strings, what type do you prefer? Also, what guitar support are you using? I can't make it out in the video.

All the best to you in 2016!

Thanks!. I normally use EJ46 from D'addario

Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you.

An ergonomics question: You appear to hold your guitar at a relatively steep angle, yet I can discern no means of supporting it, neither your left leg nor a guitar support (unless it's there and I just can't see it). How do you do that? Thanks!

Hi riffmeister,
I was going through this past post and realised that I did not really answer your question. For this particular video, I was using

Knobloch Actives ( Carbon ) Hard Tension

For the support, I was using Ergo Play for this video and the only one. I
have been using footstool these days.

warmest wishes
Kevin Loh

Greetings Bob
For this particular video I am using ergo play. This is probably the only video that I recorded using the ergo play. I have been using the footstool these days though I know it is probably not sustainable. I am blessed in that I have been exposed to the Alexander Technique for several years now and that certainly helps.

This is a picture of my current seating posture.

Thanks a lot, Kevin. I couldn't even see the Ergo Play. I've got to think that relatively extreme angle is much better for your hands and arms because it means less bending of the wrists. Again, beautiful playing!
