You might be right-thanks. At the rate I'm going, I may never be able to play it. I've been composing my own pieces mainly by ear and some are sounding pretty good. And it feels great. I might over embellish a bit but I've experienced a sense of freedom in my playing I didn't have before and there're right about saying you learn more when writing your own compositions. I recently ordered a cd and piano music to go with it from Michele McLaughlin and making arrangements for cg. But the point is, I had an opportunity to talk with her about writing pieces for the guitar and she, interestingly enough, said she does not write music or read any notes. She pays to have her work transcribed for her. So, she writes and plays completely by ear and can't read music...and she sounds great. Gave me the idea and it works and very rewarding-I can read music and I write it down and it's my real belief I will compose a famous piece just like the big boys...don't laugh it may be true.
