If by "shades" you mean tone color. I personally do not enjoy awkward and distracting changes in color in performance. It's my esthetic. As for it being "bass heavy". Certainly the bass is pronounced, dare I say balanced? In the C section of the piece the bass certainly becomes more pronounced and dynamically is louder then the fingers, but that is due to the fact that the melody is in the bass in the C section (the E minor section). Certainly on the several systems that I've played this recording on, I am able to hear a clear balance between the fingers and the thumb, and hearing the melody sing out over the bassisabelle wrote: This is probably an effect of recording, but I find that there are very few shades.
Technically, it is well. but the bass is too heavy.
It also lacks nuances in sentences.
that is just my opinion.

The publishers present it to us under the title: "Country Dance", and it is so taken back everywhere.
Yet, this piece is extracted from the opus 120 ("Recueil de différents morceaux faciles et progressifs pour Guitare seule et deux guitares") of Carulli.
Its real name: "Contre-Danse, N°2". Especially, look at the basses. The note Ré/D (for the quavers) is systematically cut. What changes completely the character of this piece. Try, you will see!
Shame to the arrangers who do not supply their sources!
