"Learning to play the guitar with Lollo means that you can throw away any books you bought on this subject. His technique is amazing. When he plays rhythm it sounds like 12 string instead of 6. You hear a train leaving the station, a power that I have never heard before. Oh my God how does he do that? I fooled myself for a while thinking it must be his self-made plectrums I could lay my hands on but than I realised the painful truth, it's the motion, the motor, it's the right hand it's like walking through a forest and when you come home you realise that you can't remember seeing a single tree. Learning the chords is one thing but starting up the diesel-train is a different ballgame. Better watch his right hand rather than his left hand it holds the key! Lollo gave me his secret, he gave me Django"! - Lollo's student: Paul Prevoo -
