    I play the last part (the single string taps) of "Eruption" which I teach to my students as a good exercise on the technique and stamina. I recorded and transcribed it, so I can send you that material if you want. I also play "Cathedral" and have a recording, but haven't transcribed it yet.
     
  3. Do you think you could send me that as well, Alvaro?
