"Cancao Triste" by Edson Lopez. A truly beautiful piece of music.

Polishing up two short but beautiful pieces, Endecha y Oremus by Tarrega. Just started with Un Dia de Noviembre (Brouwer).

I'm starting lessons again soon, but for the last couple of weeks have been refreshing my memory with Calatuyud simple pieces, and that good old anonymous favourite Romanza.

I look at the Grade 6 pieces I use to play 10 years ago and wonder how I ever managed them

Lots of version of GoT theme out there - personally, I prefer the Jonas Leftvert version. It's available as tabs, and I have it about half converted into a score. Must finish that this year!

All three are amazing compositions. But I'm dedicating most of my time to Sor's Opus 60 so I'm slowly "forgetting" other composers :(...

They all are amazing compositions indeed! I recently learned that Oremus is actually a transcription of the second section of Robert Schumann's "Phantasietanz", op. 124, no. 5. They are at opposite ends of the tempo spectrum with original piano piece marked "very fast" while the guitar transcription is marked "very slow", giving very different effects. I prefer the "very slow" guitar, but I could just be biased! :D

That is a great project, working through Sor's Opus 60. I have worked through one, 60/22, which i really enjoyed. I do have my eyes on 60/23 to start in the not too distant future.

Hi vinnyob22. Thank you for your comment on Sor's Opus 60 Project :D. Why don't you join this Project? You would be most welcome. Just post in the Topic records of the pieces you have already learned and I'll make an entry for you in the table of posted records. You don't have to start with the first piece, you know...

I'm learning Canon D myself, although this gentleman's arrangement is a little more my speed than Kindgren's at this point... https://youtu.be/G_vNTve8iDo

Also Segovia's Sor Study No. 6... https://youtu.be/4sc6-C_T4qw
Best of luck with the Canon D. Do you know what guitar is being played in the video? Also once you have mastered this version I don't think you will find it a big stretch to play Kindgren's version or Dirk *** Site blocked for copyright reasons ***'s beautiful version so masterfully played by Michael Marc here:

Sorry for not answering for so long, I have been out of pocket, moving to a differenct city and settling into a new place. Thanks for the link to Marc's version. I've downloaded his sheet music and I like it.

Nice version.

My personal favorite is Paul Quinn's version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRCQYRW2hok
But it is far beyond my scope yet.
