      For those who don’t know how to get the sound, here’s what I did.

      1. Unzip Erwin’s folder wherever you want to save it:

      2. Enter this URL in your default browser:

      3. In the Adobe Flash settings panel on the page, click Edit locations, then Add location and enter the following address, then Confirm:

      *the path where you’ve unzipped the folder*, slash, guitar.swf

      So fi you unzipped to C:\guitar11 for example, the path would be:


      This works for me.
