Hello Rich and everybody else. I wanted to thank you for all your replies and interest in my article. Unfortunately, I don't have time to respond to all individual questions, but I read each one, and take them into account for things I will write in the future.

A few things I wanted you to know. For a fuller insight into the things I teach and talk about, you should visit my site at I will however continue to post selected articles here at Whole Note, (a site I like very much). Also, if you go to my home page, you can sign up for my newsletter, which will give you a continual source of new information relating to improving as a guitarist.

Second, I am making available to Whole Note an mp3 of mine, off my CD. I hope you will give it a listen, it is a popular piece in the classical repertoire, "Spanish Romance".

Good luck to everyone in your efforts to grow as guitarists and musicians.
