I really enjoyed this. I have been watching many of the videos on this forum as I develop a broader knowledge of the canon. As a beginner, it can be overwhelming at points. Yet, this piece encapsulates what I love about classical guitar - the melody, feeling, movement, pace. Your playing on Odeon was more technical, but this piece demonstrates that you can play with deep emotion as well. Thanks for posting this and introducing me to the work.

I have to admit that it's a bit jarring to have video in your latest recordings.

I have long envisioned a sort of White Flowing Beard Zeus of Guitar character behind the recordings.

It is nice to know that you at least appear to be a normal human being.

As always, thanks for sharing with us. Your recordings have inspired me, from the beginning of the leyenda days.

That's actually more encouraging to me.

I love everything you submit. The biggest downside to your name change is that I can no longer easily find old posts by you. Your Sor 'Variations on a Theme...' is one of the best I've heard.

Maybe someday I'll collect all of your old recordings into one thread for the new folks.

P.S. Don't quit again!

"I have long envisioned a sort of White Flowing Beard Zeus of Guitar character behind the recordings."

But Feynman...that would describe your own avatar. When it's plain as day the Desperado looks exactly like MY avatar. sheesh.
