Why see such a version?
Does it seem like a hard work?
From a technical point of view simply playing the notes, the piece is not difficult.
However, the advantage of seeing how other people have played it is as follows:
1. As with listening to Jean-Francois in the lessons, it gives an idea of the overall shape of the piece and how the piece might sound. This gives a basis for comparison when you come to play it yourself and also helps you to more quickly spot when you make any mistakes.
2. Dynamics - Different people will take various stances on where to use crescendos, play loud or soft and how to use the different voices of the guitar within the piece - listening to other people gives an idea of what sounds good and what sounds bad.
3. Tempo. Some of the U tube versoins play this really fast and in my view this makes the piece sound rather unpretty. Listening to the u tube versions has hopefully helped me to avoid this pitfall.
Of course, this is just my personal opinion, an alternative would be to record yourself playing it different ways to assess what works, but I think it is probably quicker to learn from other people's mistakes rather then your own.
