Hi Anna. I am still listening to First Aid Kit and the two talented Swedish sisters and I am already hooked. By incredible coincidence my work colleague Rob photographed them in London a week ago in concert. He is a amateur photographer for bands in his spare time. He took some good photos. More on them another time. Subrata.x

I am learning this song on my Spanish Acoustic guitar at the moment. It is in classical style and Spanish traditional. Very good finger style practice. Part 1 is minor section. Part 2 is major. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0gjVj5 ... ata_player. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CntGq9L ... ata_player

Hi Suby, I Think one of the sisters (First Aid Kit) lives in London and has an English boyfriend. You might bump into them one of these Days! I´m glad you like them. I still listen to them too. Do you Think Rory would have liked them?

I am sure Rory would have liked First Aid Kit's songs. I don't see why not. He loved folklore. Subrata. x :D

Thanks Cynthia. Nice version of Spanish Romance. The you tube video is easy to follow enough. However I find the barring a little difficult and my "pinky" finger has to stretch somewhat. I will record my version of playing the song and will stick it on FB once I mastered the song. I also like the pinch method technique of the acoustic guitar. :mrgreen: Subrata.x

Hi Suby, I played that when I took classical guitar in college. A lifetime ago. Hard to believe I used to be able to do that. I was trying to find a clip of Julian Bream doing it, but I couldn't find one. There's a version in Fredrick Noad's book, that's where I learned it. I love listening to classical guitar.

In the late 80s and 90s I liked an Irish artist called Enya for her ethereal and Celtic sounds. I was very drawn to this kind of music and still am. She made a famous album called Watermark. Enya is a classical trained pianist and watercolour artist. This is one of my favourite songs called Orinoco Flow and it has some beautiful water colour images in it. The songs makes me feel like I am flowing and free. Subrata.x https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTrk4X9 ... ata_player. The other song I like is May It Be:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ww8wqEg ... ata_player
