    Wonderful!
    Your Steve Howe cover was great. And so is this!
    Just like with the Howe cover, you capture the feel very well, not just the notes. Well done!!

    Thank you very much! Please keep them coming.

    How difficult was it to learn?
    Did you do it by ear?

    Very nice indeed, I would love a broken down tutorial video of this, I have long since wanted to attempt this one, at least I have more of an idea after watching you play it.

    Thank you, Gizmotron! The videos I make are of songs that I really love and most of all I try to play them with attitude and emotion. Technically, there is always something to be desired. Now I could make a better option, but ......

    I wouldn't say that this piece is very difficult technically, especially for guitarists with experience with classical guitar. The most difficult thing is to perform both purely technical and with feeling. And this song, as well as the song of Steve Howe, I took out mainly by ear, and for some moments for adjustment I watched videos with their live performances.

    Thank you, Sunlight Caller! Come to think of it, I could write the song in notes and make a TAB, so who wants to use them as help material. This week I have a lot of work to do on studio recordings, but at the beginning of next I will try to do it.

    If you would write a tab that would be so kind and very helpful. I feel I could make this another Covid project, I bought myself a new acoustic and would like to dedicate some time to learning this piece, all I need is a little guidance and a lot of time!

    Absolutely lovely.
    Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.
