Wonderful, Henny, well played and the tone is excellent. The first phrase is a bit demanding, but it is doable. Meanwhile, I'm still in the #7. It's already memorized but now I have to play it in tempo. The metronome is helping. I may start with the #10 as well, so to have more than one piece in the learning process simultaneously. Ah!... almost forgot it, ordered yesterday the Music Journal app, I'll start using it today.Henny wrote:# 13 of Op.60

Yes, why not give it a try? I've seen your profile and, if I recall well, you are familiar with the guitar for already some 20 years, although paying other genres of music rather than classical guitar. But provided you can read music and you are familiar, as I'm sure you are, with the accord positions in the guitar, with a bit of persistence you will certainly be able to play the first few pieces of Sor's Opus 60 and proceed from there (together with the Delcamp lessons Henny is also advising you to take). Of course, you will have to forget the pick and learn how to use your RH fingers in an appropriate way (with or without nails ). Moreover, though this is not a competition, we criticise in a positive way each posted record each sort of encourage each other to proceed in these little pieces. It helps to keep your determination...artdecade wrote:Do you think diving into Op. 60 is a good choice for a classical beginner like myself? Although I am familiar with the guitar, this will be my first steps into classical guitar. My major concern is that the pieces seem to get advanced somewhat quickly. I have spent the last few days going through the posts and the recordings, so I have an interest in giving it a try.
Well played, Henny, as usual. However, the recording itself, I think, has a bit of a reverberation. I also noticed in the record of the #13. May be the micro is way too near the guitar. In my case, I usually place the microphone some 30 to 40cm away from, but pointed to, the hole of the guitar.Henny wrote:Using my sunday for the recording of #14.
i hope people can like it or disapprove , comments welcome.
You pose two different questions, artdecade:artdecade wrote:I suppose I need to figure out a way to record myself! Also, would this be a good thread to discuss interpretations of the Sor pieces? I have two recorded versions (Kazuhito Yamashita and Enea Leone) that are very different. I don't want to derail the thread though.
