Carulli, Ferdinando - Andantino

Postby Tubbers » Fri Apr 24, 2009 10:11 am

Well guys, here is my ‘long awaited’ (by me, anyway ) post of ‘Andantino’ by Ferdinando Carulli.
It’s one of the very first studies I fell in love with when I took up classical.
The song is from the Frederick Noad’s book ‘The Idiots Guide To The Guitar’ and I also heard it from Jerry Willard’s book ’50 Easy Guitar Pieces and it’s his version that I play here.
The difference being that I used a capo on the 2nd fret and I added a chord at the end.
It took quite a while to memorize but I plugged away and I’m fairly happy with it though there are some buzzes here and there.
It’s also a favourite of friends and family when I play it for them.
My Father played guitar most of his life and he passed away in 1991 at age 83.
Sadly, I never showed any interest in the guitar while he was alive (I messed around with drums) and now I think I will always regret not letting myself be taken under his wing.
But I feel now he would be happy to see me playing today and putting the effort in as he was also a fan of Segovia.

So I hope you like it and comments/critique are welcome.
My guitar is a Montalvo ‘Concert’ series with La Bella medium/hard tension strings
The guitar was given to me by a great friend in California

Nicely played tubbers, sorry to hear about your father but I guess that was a while ago now. My kids are also not interested in anything I do, I hope one of my boys will find some interest someday. AO.

:bravo:
Great job, Tubbers!!!
I love this piece of music because it has such a cheerful melody.
When I was listening to you play this piece I could just see you sitting in a living room playing for a very delighted little 4 or 5 year old girl. As she listens for a bit, she begins to dance, turning and bowing, making dainty little steps on her tippy toes.
The two of you are having a wonderful time and give each other a big hug right after that last chord.
Thank you for this beautiful scene and thank you for sharing your music with us . As you might notice, I really have enjoyed listening to your performance tonight.
:merci:

Music touches the heart, but playing classical guitar can lift your heart and enrich your life.

Thanks AO. :)
Just keep your guitar always in sight and hopefully one of them will just happen to pick it up and say: 'Show me!'

Thanks Danny. Yes, it was one of those 'late in life' things I decided to try. I had first wanted to play a Dobro but as I listened to more and more styles of guitar music the classical really hit me the hardest. :lol: I've had my ups and downs with it but I feel now that I will be playing for the rest of my life and not too many days go by when I don't play. :)

I tend to agree and I will be posting more soon.
