I love "Unsung"! If you rollerblade to it you're really taking your life into your own hands. :D

I've modified my version a little, but that's a fun one to play.

Mediterranean Sundance, by Al DiMeola and Paco De Lucia.

This starts out with expert-level guitar showmanship. Then it takes it up a notch. And then, another. Guitar gods of metal would perhaps duck their heads and toe the ground sheepishly, blushing.

Are there any venues in town where one could go to for reliable, really good guitar-playing any night of the week...or even one night of the week? I'm thinking of something like a wine bar where one could hear Spanish guitar, or maybe a coffee house/cafe for eclectic grooves. Of course, now I'll have to wait til Monday to read any responses. :|
