    We had the beetles in the USA. My dad was big fan of them. I don’t know what models we had, but I do remember the white one we had. There were these giant flower decals that my sister placed all over the car. Decals are things that you pull the paper off the back and then the decal is sticky and can be stuck (applied) anywhere. The flower decals we had were approximately 10 inches in diameter, multi colored, and we had dozens of them on the car. Talk about a hippie car! Still can’t believe my parents went for that. I didn’t think they even knew of the band, The Grateful Dead. :lol:

    You’re right – it probably is illegal. I’m going to take off that attachment up above right now. The other pieces I have are not really western-music, but more just kind of hard-driving, kick-ass stuff that I like. I have no problem sending mp3’s by email. Who’s going to know, right? I have an idea about a few pieces that you may like or may just make you smile. I’m thinking Elvis, Pfish, Korn, Harry Belafonte, Steely Dan, Beetles – I mean Beatles haha – stuff like that. I have a sort of weird taste in music sometimes, and we all know how musical taste is very subjective. I'll send you a couple mp3s, so look in your email shortly.

    Very nice! Might even be enough to get me practicing classical guitar again. :lol: Seriously, I am enjoying your playing tremendously. I play electric guitar mostly, but I really need to get back to classical some more. :D

    Hi Horowitzian,
    if I would imagine Horowitz with an electric guitar, I would get probably a true shock. :shock: :lol:
    I´m just joking with you, of course, now seriously, thank you for your kind and encouraging comment. I´m happy to have inspired you to practise eventually on classical guitar.
    I´m practising on some Chopin-Nocturnes at this time, too, and on the Scherzo nr. 3, c sharp minor (, of which is still a recording of myself on this site), because I´ll play some Chopin-pieces (and Mendelssohn and Bach) in a recital in this summer. So, have much success and I´ll listen to your recordings, if you´ll post them in AR.

    Thanks, I will hopefully have a few recordings this fall, and I'll post them if I can. I am actually moderately advanced on classical guitar; if I would practice, I'm sure I could really improve. I may pick it up later today. :)

    I listened to your a few of your piano vids as well, and I enjoyed them just as much. Especially your Bach. I'll check out the Scherzo, since I recall seeing it on your channel.

    Horowitz with an electric guitar certainly would be interesting. :lol: FWIW, I tend towards jazzy stuff and country style chicken pickin' on electric, rather than the overdriven distorted kind of stuff.

    Oh, I just had way too much time on my hands today and fooled around with my Adobe Photoshop program. I think this is funny too!

    I have this program, too, so, I´ll try some experiments next time, too.
    It´s 00:23 am here now, so I´m going to bed.

    Hope, I´ll sleep well in my Bettgestell! (german "Bettgestell" means engl.=bedframe)

    Isn't Photoshop wonderful? I like Horowitz's taste in guitars. :D I'd love to have the original image too, if you could provide it. :)

    I'd try, but would probably fail miserably. :D

    Sleep well!

    I just went to Google - images and typed in Vladamir Horowiztsz and then asked for only large-size images. Try it - there were many other nice photos of him as well.

    How do you do that? I didn't know you could specify image sizes. :?:

    Hi Horowitzian,
    I think, I have found at least a similar picuture for you. You have to google "images", then you´ll be leaded to the google image search, there you can specify sizes of images.

    Jimmy Hendriks failed miserably, too, in his attempt to play the Star Spangled Banner, so don´t mention. :wink: :lol:

    sorry guys, I just saw this. To get a larger image, simply go to Google Images and then go to the 'advanced image search' and click on whatever size you want. I may try fooling around with a large Chopin or Granados image and put myself into the photo too, like I did this Horowitz thing. Wouldn't that be funny? :lol: (probably only to me :wink: )

    This would be very funny, Monica, so at least we could unravel the mystery, who are your favourite composers, isn´t it? :lol: (Just kidding.) No seriously, it would be funny. If I find some time, I will do some experiments, with Adobe Photshop, too.
