1. About Tal's childhood: (excerpt, Phil Schapp radio interview, WKCR, Columbia New York, circa 1995)
'Tal's voice here, is always and instantly touching, it reveals his gentleness. Here Tal relates the way he developed his approach to his guitar,he first learned all the chords with a 4- string guitar, the he added the bass using the thumb of his huge hand. This specific technic allowed him to play like no one else, to keep the 4-note chord and substitute the bass as a pianist would. His introductions are so richt it always reminds me of a pianist playing'
