Finally able to get this up....a great soft song from Masaaki Kishibe, it's the song from the "work in progress" topic I posted a couple days ago. Really happy and excited to be able to do this one.

Was the tough one just for the fact that there were some stretches that hurt...mainly 2-5, and the one 2-6.

But I hope I did it justice.

I never heard the original, but what you did sounds really good.....as always. Kudos, once again. 8) 8)

Thanks Roy! I appreciate it!!

It's going to be a while before another vid, I'm working on another song from him, and it's really darn difficult....called Rainy Window.

I can get about 3 pages into the 4 page arrangement (rough playing, but still doable) before I really get finger-tied. So I'm excited to see how well I can do that one in the next month.

That's my favorite way to learn new guitar stuff. Bite off more than I can chew. :D

Great work Joe, not a piece I'm familiar with very good.

Thanks alot! It's not a very popular piece, but it's not pop / rock either, it's from a fingerstyle master in japan.

Oh, and Rainy Window....the one that I've been working on for quite a while now....at least an hour a day on this one piece....almost have it!!! :D :D :D

Just have some problems with the last page, which I'm working the kinks out now, and hopefully will be able to play it a few times in a row before I record it!
