This beautiful piece is No.5 from John Hall's book of etudes, "Influences".

That's lovely Lucy! Well played too! There's a lot of stretches and very quick chordal changes that would be beyond me. Thanks!

Beautiful playing as always Lucy. Seems to really suit the tone of your guitar. A tune for your next album perhaps?

Thanks for sharing,
Paul

Thanks for your lovely comments everyone! :)

Thanks for those observations. Quite right. The first two lines are particularly tricky. Bit disappointed I slightly flubbed that huge stretch between the C (5th string) and B (1st string). It's the following D# that complicates it! Quite difficult for me, anyway, but playing with a camera rolling doesn't exactly help. Not my favourite thing to do! :wink: I appreciate your warm comments.

Thanks Paul. Funny you should say that. It's certainly under consideration, as well as some of the other etudes.

I'm planning to do a more classically orientated CD next time, (not sure when though), but I am conscious to not record a whole album of pieces that have been recorded by almost everyone already! However, I have to admit, I do have some favourites, that I might like to play too. I think I'm going to try and mix it up a bit.

Beautiful job Nina! Don't worry about slight imperfections, remember perfection is boring. You got a great sound in that room and your playing and interpretation are excellent! Thank you so much for taking the time to learn it and record it. It's a rare treat for a composer to actually hear one of his pieces performed by such a fine player. I hope you do more Nina.

Hi! Lucy. You did yourself proud. I loved it. You didn't look to shook up on camera, I have a hard enough time recording myself without a camera, so thanks for your bravery and your sharing your gift.....joe
