Classical Guitar

All the Scarlatti songs I have are too difficult for me to play. But this one might be doable. I like it a lot. It's my next project.

Could John W. make it look like any more of a casual walk in the park? God, I love/hate that guy. Have you seen (or heard) his Barrios repertoire? It's inspiring and discouraging at the same time. Good luck on the Scarlatti.
If it isn't fun, I'm not doing it

I haven't heard that one, but he is super. He doesn't tour much anymore, but he did come to Taipei a few years ago. And I missed it.

You should hear me doing that one on my Les Paul with the gain on the Marshall stack turned all the way up. GNARLY!

I like to play Fugue in D Minor with a lot of distortion. It's righteous.

This is the one I'm working on now. It's originally a piano piece, but now a fairly standard learners tune. It helps develop technique.

I can do about the first 50 seconds. It's very calming and almost hypnotic.

And here's one I wish I had the music to.

I can't open vids at work but I assume you mean Joaquim Malats : Serenata Española; according to the delcamp scores index they have that one here:
delcamp_volume9.pdf(pp.124-9). If you can't open that, see the reason further below.

and there is a free pdf version here as well:
http://www2.free-scores.com/PUBLIC/kb/RiBS1022.pdf

In case you don't know, http://www.delcamp.us/ is a large classical guitar forum, and the site founder has put a large amount of public domain notation (see the bottom of the index page), arranged by difficulty level such as the high-difficulty level 9 pieces here, in pdf files available for free download to active users who achieve a certain post count. After achieving that post count (note: high quality posts are required), you can print them out and have them spiral bound so that they'll lay flat on your music stand, or you could just play them off your monitor.
