I've also come across Sagreras' "Lecciones" here and they look really vast and "nutritious". I haven't really dug into them yet though. So much music and learning to do, so little time.

My rendition of Fernando Sor Opus 60 nr. 11 was posted last Sunday, May 8th, as part of the Project Let’s learn Sor’s Opus 60 together, shall we?. I'm now studying the next piece in the Opus 60, the nr. 12. I've almost got it memorized, I may be able to post it towards the end of next week.

I would be remiss if I didn't point out that I downloaded Prof. Delcamp's team's edition of the Sagreras "Lecciones" here (well, Delcamp.net I believe). This site is an amazing resource and I thank Prof. Delcamp and his team for putting so much effort into creating something that is a tremendous benefit for anyone who wants to learn about classical guitar. I also downloaded the edition of Bach's lute pieces but they're a little beyond my capabilities at this point. :) I'll get there (I hope :D )

Still chipping away at un dia de noviembre by Brouwer (for grade 6 - UK LCM exams) - got some technical questions about fingerings for the forum which I'll post at some point in the technique section...
Distractions include my 14 month boy (who likes to strum the guitar!) and grade 5 pieces I wanted to try but never got the chance before (El negrito by lauro, Brescianello_Menuet and Trio etc)

I just finished transcribing the variation of Adelitta that Rob Mackillop posted about a week ago... Now I'm busy learning to play it properly

Barrios La Catedral. I pleased with the way its coming along, especially the Allegro which is slowly building up to an acceptable tempo.

Brouwer's Un Dia de Noviembre and Folias Gallegas by Santiago de Murcia. I'm hoping to make a recording of the Murcia soon. Maybe if I say it, I'll do it.
