I think it's very intrusive if you do that kind of thing to another guitarist... But the violin is generally a powerful instrument so the guitar chords are OK... my opinion!

hi polkat, my reply wasn't directed at you and I can understand the financial times... but think of it from our side as well, we spent thousands of dollars on this and we are a small team, and we did most of the work ourselves since we can't afford to hire the best editors either... we put in litera...
