    Wow, she plays beautiful classical guitar and is beautiful herself. I "learned" asturias from my guitar instructor back at the end of high school. Although I memorized all the notes, it never quite sounded right, although I could usually fool my non-musically inclined listeners.

    The part that always killed me was where you have to hit that one barre chord at the 8th fret I think, but with your pinky on the 12 fret (at the 0:53 mark on the video). It never sounded right.

    Anyways, Albeniz is simply awesome. His Iberia Suite for three guitars is unbelievable.
