    Good Job on that song. Sounds just like Dominator's arrangement did you memorize the song already? or were you reading tabs?

    I'm not sure if it was Dominator who told this to me about jake, but Jake really lets the songs 'breathe'. Especially with a song like this. Try to smooth out the lines and just really take your time on it. It helps to study jake's video and see where he slows down and when he speeds up. But yeah good job! keep it up!

    how long did it take you to get through the whole thing and memorize it?

    ive been kinda working on the heb ohta version of europa, and i stopped after the first few measures after the intro. now i basically just use the intro to warm up my right hand for picking hahaha. i dont have the patience i guess.

    nice job!

    i learned dom's first version of Touch when he posted it..... it's so different the way Jake does it now and i feel so outdated haha.

    Keep hammering on this one, its a good one to memorize. I tend to play the B section to warm up and get my slides working.
