Yes really nice both ways. Who played the nails versions?
How about the third way... gut with nails as Tarrega would have played in his earlier years. Segovia too, come to think of it.

Exactly - or basically any classical guitarist before nylon was developed in the 1940's.

I played the nail versions as well. Thanks for checking it out!

The only silk/gut set I see at stringsbymail.com is Pyramid's at $99 per set. How long do they last?

Fantastic! Very warm and thick tone. Phrasing was beautiful, very well done.

Thanks for the recording! This was very beautifully played. I love that no-nails sound.
