The first few measures until I get bored or parts of the music get too hard of a HUGE stack of music.

Last week I was on holidays in Seefeld, Austria, for skiing and playing my guitar away fro the daily office routine. Had the time to start with another wonderful Sor piece, i didn't know before. Andantino, op 32, no 1. It's such a goreous piece and with a lot of technical skills to practice like arpeggio and thirds. But not overly difficult, highly recommendable.

Here is a sample of how it sounds when played by a prof.

Just looked over Giulini's 3 Sonatinas, opus 71 - I am not a fan of his (with apologies!They seem so fomulaic, but of course I know it was the Zeitgeist/era in which he wrote) but they are extremely easy to sight read & have been enjoying playing them.

I'm in the Project Let’s learn Sor’s Opus 60 together, shall we? and yesterday started working on Sor's Opus 60, nr. 7 (nr. 6 is already "in my fingers" but I'll polish it a little bit more before attempting to record it) :D.

Malaguena (traditional) but for now I'm only practicing the tremolo and speed :)

I am just starting Walton's Bagatelle number 1. With all the time changes, it's like playing Rush for classical guitar. The weird thing is that I can play this ( sort of ), but I can't do simple tremolo worth beans. Thank goodness hat I primarily play for "my own amusement", as my former teacher used to say.

Currently transcribing Satie Gnossienne 2 for my 7 string. I haven't heard any other guitarists play it, so it feels novel to me. And I just like the piece. REsults will be posted here.

So, I guess this book by Scott Morris does not have Gnossienne 2.

Some day, I'm going to work on some pieces by Datue, but they look tough. Where would you suggest a person start? I'm an intermediate player.

At the moment I memorize the three Barrios pieces Danza Paraguay, Maxixe and Julia Florida. I already memorized La Catedral, Una Limosna Por el Amor de Dios and Preludio en Do menor, and my goal is to memorize all Barrios pieces from the book "selected works" until mid of the year (including Choro da Saudade and the two Vals op 8 ).
