Ah, OK, I was confused for a second, but too quick with my ??.

Well, I am very pleased it is growing on you! Moving in the right direction. I love playing that opening Gm chord. It just sounds so beautiful on this instrument.

Yes I do like the opening in particular and the flat (especially minor) keys are underused on guitar. Since getting the 8 string (C, D bass) my C minor chords sound lovely too! So much so that I've started writing a couple of arrangements & pieces in Cm. Hopefully Gm & other less common guitar keys will sound similarly resonant when I eventually get my 11 string!
