Well done, Lagartija! I learned JF a few years ago. My teacher at the time described it as the most perfectly composed piece he knew. I just love playing it, and I can tell from your recording that you do, too.

Thank you for listening, Oski! Yes, it is such a beautiful piece. A love song... a lullaby... and the soothing motion of the boat on the water.
:mrgreen:

I find that I like a lot of Barrios' work. Someday.... La Cathedral.

Thank you, CardMaker, that is very kind of you to say. :D

Thank you, Razz. :merci: It helps to have a lovely sounding guitar!


I looked at my practice log to see when I started to work on this piece. It was a year and 8 months ago that I began and I've put in about 188 hours on it over that time period. It takes me a while to get to this point in a piece. :|
A labor of love, as they say!

That's incredibly scientific of you to record your practice like that! I wouldn't worry about the time it takes, it's definitely a labour of love. :casque: Wasn't it Julian Bream who said he never performed anything, unless he'd played it for a year, and never recorded a piece until he'd had two years of playing it.

:lol: Well... I *was* trained as a scientist and spent my career doing engineering type tasks, so I suppose it is not really a surprise. :wink:
I'm not really worried about the time it takes. I have noticed that it takes me about 75 hours of work on a piece like Julia Florida before it starts to sound like "music" and I am playing it fluently. I need to play something for at least a year for it to settle in and hold up under the pressure of performance....so in that, it appears that I am in good company!
:merci: for listening.

hi Lagartija

Nicely played! You are an inspiration - I also started playing guitar only close to my fifties. So, I admire your perseverance!
Best regards,
Malan

Lovely sound Largertija. :) It's a beautiful piece and one I never learned. I see so many people play it, perhaps I should.
