"...I just wanted to send an email to firstly say thank you for making available the tablature for "Two Guitars" amongst the many others. I have been looking for the tabs for quite a while (I'm only beginning to play the guitar though, so I thought tabs would be easier for me to follow) and stumbled across your newsletters in the process of searching the web (I'd even attempted searching in Russian, but to no avail!). I have now bookmarked your site, having looked through and found many different traditional gypsy songs (which have interested me for a long time). Again, I would like to express my gratitude for your efforts in putting the tabs, sheet music and even MP3 files online, it certainly has helped me a lot!

"...I just recently discovered your Newsletters and MP3 downloads. These are great aids for lerning new tunes on the guitar!...Thank you for your time and your great music!"
