Bryan Aspey: shred this,"the coolest thing I've done in a long while."

I had a very nice response from Bryan Aspey since winning the Shred This competition... 168 entries, but there could only be 1 winner... Bryan Aspey says:
Since 2000, I had been playing mostly acoustic, and then made the switch a few years ago exclusively to classical. It was a great experience for me and I plan to keep up with it, yet the further I drifted from my 90's shred roots, the more I began to miss it, so I picked up my electric more seriously again about a year and a half ago, and I've been trying to decide what style of guitar to focus on for my next project, so this competition came along at just the right time for me. It forced me to raise my electric playing to a higher level than it's been before, bringing with me some things I picked up while I was unplugged, and I'd like to think that you guys picking me as the winner is going to have to mark my official return to the electric guitar, and more importantly - SHRED!

I was trying to think what it was about this competition that I found so appealing, and I think it was a combination of the fierce competition by the amazing players who entered, the structure of having everyone play over Tom's great backing track, and the down-to-earth fun vibe overall, not to mention that I've been a fan of your work with "Truth in Shredding" for some time!

Thank you again for the opportunity and inspiration; this was the coolest thing I've done in a long while.

Here's my arrangement for electric guitar of another classical guitar study by the great Paraguayan guitarist & composer Agustín Barrios Mangoré (1885 - 1944). I do miss the lower voice, but this arrangement makes a great picking study with some work on l/r hand synchronization, tremolo picking, and some sweep picking to boot. Have fun!
