The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

I think I might have posted that vid already... not that it matters.

As you might know, Asturias was originally composed for the piano, and it was Albeniz's friend Francisco Tárrega (composer of the famous Recuerdos de la Alhambra) who transcribed it for the guitar.

yup, i know the story behind Albéniz's masterpiece Asturias. have to admit, though, that the resonance of the guitar's sound reminds me better of the sensitivity of the earth element.
