Well done, sir, well done indeed! (And, they ARE nice pieces).Granary Guitars wrote:Mauro Giuliani wrote a lovely set of pieces which (from memory) are not difficult and totally fit the bill.

I am always on the look out for 'wildflowers' up to grade 5 or 6. Obviously there's stuff like various Sor studies, the Brouwer studies, Pavlovits, Yvonne Bloor, various Carcassi and Carulli studies, Peter Nuttall, various Tarrega pieces and Sagreras..
Feel free to point me to any other stand outs in this grade range, good tips appreciated.
I know, that is so annoying. Julian Bream is the guy they should be worshipping!Tony335 wrote:Unquestioningly worshipping Segovia and preaching that Segovia's way is the only correct way...

I am retired and I can read well enough to play what I want, but I'd probably flunk any exam on the subject. The pieces that I can't read; I probably wouldn't be able to play that well. So, I see it as a service to mankind. If I could read better, I might try playing pieces that were over my head and play them badly.Sharon Vizcaino wrote:Agree with bear. I'm trying, but there's only so much time in a day if you have a full-time job! (And even less if you're a student...). But who knows, maybe someday I'll save up enough to retire, become 'literate' in music and act condescending towards those who are not. That's the dream
