I turn 58 this year and while I mostly play Carcassi studies I hope to tackle this someday (or one like it--doesn't really matter). Another Delcamp member signs his posts "Keep climbing--forever", which sums it up nicely. Thx for posting.

Someday will come, Smith, if you keep at it. :-)
I found that working with a teacher led to faster progress than if I had been working on my own.
Thanks for listening!

Thanks immensely for posting your interpretation of Julia Florida. This piece is one of my favorites and am currently working on it. I am finding it is right at the cusp of what I am able to play. So far have been working only on the first section (have not gone beyond the section that is included in the first repeat) There are some chord transitions in this first section that I was finding difficult and I noticed that you slowed the tempo, whereas I had been practicing at tempo. A light went on, that this would make it a bit easier and now that I look at the score, I see that there actually is a retard indicated.

So thanks again for posting as you have given me another "slant" on how to possibly learn to play this lovely piece.

This piece is in Jason's curriculum at Artistworks, so I might get around to it.

Thank you for listening, Kent and Instanes. :-D
I'll try to work up a few more pieces, Kent. I am enjoying every minute with this guitar. I find it hard to walk by it and not pick it up!

Funny you should mention Jason...I was influenced by his interpretation of this piece and in two months will be playing it for him. :shock: :chaud:
So I have some more work to do, as you can imagine.

Thank you for listening, Bacsidoan!
Maybe my decades of time on sailing vessels has made the barcarole a more natural rhythm for me than some others. ;-) :lol:

The guitar does have a lovely voice...I've noticed that it has more sustain and overtones than my other guitar. This presents a challenge in that I have to damp more things than previously with my other guitar.
My other guitar has very good sustain as well, but I usually just needed to damp the same note I had played elsewhere when the full value was complete. With this guitar, playing the open B string will noticeably excite the D string and in dropped D, that means both D strings need to be damped when I play D or B, when the note should end. So many more things are ringing and need to be controlled. I'll get the hang of it, I'm sure! :-)

Thank you St. George, (bows low, sweeping the ground with a short little foreleg)...I hope this has pleased you sufficiently to spare me a jab from your spear...
I promise to play other soothing things if given the opportunity, Sir. :-)

Of course. That is why I hoped to be spared....I'm just a cute, very small, non-dangerous lizard. ;-)
