(I tried Debussy, and he guessed him in less than 20 questions!)

For me, that was awesome.

I was thinking of Gustav Mahler. He was slow going at first, and seemed to ask redundant questions. ("Did he have European origins?" then, "Was he European?" "Was he partly a singer/musician?" then, "Was he a singer?")

But all of a sudden, he started zooming in on it: "Did he wear glasses?" "Did he have Jewish origins?" And then he guessed correctly.

Cool.
