In this performance on Dutch television, The Rosenberg trio covers Chick Corea's 'Spain' in their typical uptempo swing manouche style. The intro is a fragment of Concierto de Aranjuez that use in my lessons; the fast accelerations in the melody create a dynamic balance with the slow and steady chord arpeggios played by the rhythm guitar.

Here is a guitar arrangement I made of the intro theme song from the popular animated sitcom 'Family Guy'. The original score is a bigband swing tune composed by Walter Murphy.
In this solo guitar arrangement I tried to combine chords and melody as closely as possible to the original tune, although I think there are many ways to play it. Good luck!
