the link that I gave here was to the Big River site...the edition is in Spanish but I use scores/notes and this is important for me.

Do you have his Method as a pdf, Tate? Or is it still published?
It's still published - I bought it a couple of years ago in a music shop in Barcelona. I could scan the bits of it that you want if you'd like. Honestly. most of it is very elementary, but there are some nice studies in there too.

When you record for an album, do you go to a studio or do it with your existing equipment?

It is most probably Casa Beethoven, La Rambla; they are also editors of music by mentioned by me Eliseo Fresquet Serret.

Thanks. I'll get hold of it.

Regarding recording the album, all will be revealed in the forum post called "Homage to Cataluña" which I created earlier today:

Hi Rob,

Greetings from New Mexico & congratulations! What a great find!

Looking forward to hearing more from the album you're working on.

Checked out your website and noticed the section on Hector Garcia. Heard him perform a few years back at the Hispanic center in Albuquerque as part of the Pimentel Concert Series.

Hector, as you probably already know, used to be the chair for the music program at the University of New Mexico now led by Michael Chapdelaine.

Also on the guitar faculty at UNM is Ben Silva whose also a Luthier! Check out the #10 obtained from him several years ago - viewtopic.php?f=11&t=93251&p=992171&hil ... va#p992171

Best Regards,

Theo

Cheers, Theo. Your guitar looks great. New Mexico looks like a great place to be. I have a Skype student in Española.

Isabelle - I hope you can find one. From my experience, it's better if you don't look for one, then one turns up at your door :-)

Kirolak - indeed it is!
