Happy Birthday, Garota de Ipanema!
Had to pull out an old version to commemorate this tune's fiftieth.

Love your guitarwork on one of my favorite songs - you do credit to the piece.
I can't make out a lot of the conversation at the end (listening in the office, with the volume subdued; had I any sense, I'd wait until I got home to see if you mention what I'm about to write here) but if you're interested is a little trivia, the woman who was the inspiration for the song, Heloísa Pinheiro, is still walking past the guys in Rio, just celebrated her 67th birthday this month, and is still quite the attractive lady. She has aged as gracefully as the song she inspired.
