Those are both awesome pieces, very inspiring and somewhat different. I rarely use a capo (I don't even know where one is at the moment) but I am going to get a classical one for the "New World Flamenco" course. I think this person is using a Schubb capo. I thought it was interesting in that first video how he only capo'd 5 strings, using the low E as a bas drone but still at different points actually played behind the capo...very cool. It's a long piece to memorize but I think only a few challenging parts for a more advanced intermediate player. Very nice!
The second one, "Dark Star," man that is an extended constant picking pattern going on. That is a stamina piece for sure. Liked the first one better but both are nice finds. Do you have the music to either of these?
Thanks for posting by the way, I really enjoyed them.
