Treg, my comments were not directed at you. I just don't think it funny when someone does things like this. Just so immature. Sorry if I got a little bent. I mean, the Chaconne is one of the hardest pieces to play on a guitar, I know, I tried and failed.


No worries. We each have our own goals and views of music and dedication. I remember watching a documentary several years ago about Manuel Barrueco collaborating with Steve Morse, Al Di Meola, and Andy Summers. He said he was very nervous playing with them because he came from a world of extreme practice and prepared performances, and he was playing with masters of improvisation. Meanwhile, they were nervous about playing with a master of his level. That documentary, along with many Victor Borge specials and loony tunes operas, have given me a very easygoing view of music.

I'm always amazed at how great my playing is, until someone with talent shows up and says "hey, that note is not in tune." "It was until you showed up, buddy!" Bang Head
