    Wow, I hope I can play that fast one day :D

    Oh I know what you mean, I also have these specific moments in the song where I just can't process fast enough to continue the rhythm. It usually happens when I played something wrong when learning that part of the song and then had to relearn it (even if I noticed it and corrected my errors immediately). Some neurons just keep firing telling me to put my finger the wrong place, and for each time I do the same mistake, the stronger the neural signal gets until I sit down and really concentrate on doing it right over and over again, it's so frustrating and time consuming haha.
    I am looking forward to hearing the "hit song" ;)

    but sometimes..... Yesterday I was remembering Hotel California which I haven't tried in years. I usually video record myself because it's quick to do, just in case I come up with something. Anyway, I thought I was really sucking but then I played back the recording to hear what I was doing wrong and I thought "WOW, that sounds great, how did I get in all the 'little notes' in between?" So I played again and realized I was playing notes with my left hand I wasn't even thinking about. I still can't figure out how I know to do that or even could so naturally. I was using the 12 string preset. Usually it's the other way around like you mention and I'm thinking "what is that crap I got in there." :)

    What I would love to learn is "concierto de aranjuez" ( Spelling?)

    Anyone know what key it is in?
    I am currently in search of the sheet music for it.

    Awesome tune from the late 30's.
    I want to play it in a modern form like latin or jazz . . not classical.

    That's my next challenge.

    Thanks Oriane and Cowboy.

    I printed off some music from the WWW for free:D
    It's in key of Eb . . Not too difficult me thinks :confused:

    I can see your link Oriane in the key of F . . . Even better.

    Cheers:)

    Ah yes, I was looking at the sheet music in the YouTube clip, and also the one I sent you.
