Thanks for the complement on Matelot. I think it is a great little tune that Raul wrote, and excellent for working out the minor arps. I have had fun learning it and still trying to get it up to speed. I think Raul plays it at 220 or some god awful speed. For me, the trick isn't so much the speed, but trying to keep it clean and consistent.

Anyways, thanks again,
