    Welcome to my 475th solo guitar video on YouTube, Spain, by Chick Corea. I am really conflicted about this “arrangement“. There used to be a time when I put a lot of effort into creating sophisticated arrangements, each with its own unique voicings, fingerings and passages, sometimes reflecting their original, other times changing it completely but whatever the case, there was real time and effort involved. Those days are pretty much gone, as I am older, caring for a family and too busy. Specifically, as it relates to Spain, this tune has been on my list for a good 20 years to try and make something special out of it, I started several times over the years only to get distracted. So on the positive side, I have a developing style, if you want to call it that, whereby I can tackle pretty much any tune end it will sound half decent. This performance is a reflection of that, it is pretty much thrown together from memory and I made no effort to make this into something unique. I'm also pretty sure I'm playing it somewhat wrong, lol. Oh well, I hope one day I will once again find the time to sit down and create meaningful arrangements. In the meantime, I hope you will somewhat enjoy this. As for why I chose to post it now: As I approach my landmark 500th arrangement video, I just wanted to get this tune on the record as “posted“, for better or worse. OK, see you next week!

    Jake this really nice for just sitting down and playing but I think it just speaks of your playing and dedication. I happen to be out on the porch playing this tune fingerstyle and I can see I have much to work on. I like the way you keep it going and of course taking care of the family...………..good for you.
    specializing in repair and setup, does your guitar play like it should?

    Good grief Jake, you have to package this one up as a lesson! Beautiful arrangement.

    Also, nice collection of vinyl you have there. I think our tastes are of one mind!
