Barrios Mangore, Augstin - Una Limosnita Por el Amor de Dios - Video

Helloooo! :D
I must say I truly love Barrios's music, and this piece is magnificent.
Theres still some small mistakes (unintentional golpe/ 3[?] small gaps in rhythm of the tremolo/ 2 forgotten bars) but this is the best take i got of this today.
I'm still polishing, so i figured now would be a good time to get outside opinions on this. I hope you enjoy, and please don't be shy with the constructive criticisim!

I too am struggling with this ultimate tremolo piece ..

Isn't the guitar Action rather high ?
( It appears that you need to press the strings too hard . )
Doesn't it make a difficult piece like this even more difficult .. ?

Despite the fact that you're still polishing it , there are moments of charm ..
even if not consistent .

I heard Ioana Gandrabur's version of it many times , which has been a great help .
( It's on Youtube , and has had the maximum views I guess . )

Thanks for sharing .

It's quite a difficult piece...

the guitars action is action at the most comfortable level that i could get it to without inducing fret buzz.
I don't think so the hardest part of this piece for me is the consistency, and dynamics of this piece.

then consistency is added to my list of things to listen for in this piece! :)

I'll check it out, I've always listened to John Williams playing this live and thats given me many ideas.

Thank you for the feedback! If you ever want me to return the favor, I'll be here.

Thanks for giving us an opportunity to hear you play this masterpiece. I never tire of hearing this piece and I enjoyed hearing your interpretation.
I'm sure that we have some members here on Delcamp who can give you some of their ideas on how to help you make it even better.
Thank you for all of the time and work that you have put into making this video for us.

I'm no expert, but I am trying to learn a tremolo piece right now so feel that I can comment. I'm ignoring good advice and learning to play tremolo on a piece that's too hard (Recuerdos de la Alhambra), and I suffer for it, but I never enjoyed learning to ski on the bunny hill either.

I'd say that your tremolo and mine have a similar feature....the tremolo "gallops" and is not even. This could be an inconsitent tremolo tempo, or the volume of one of the tremolo strings is lower than the others. I'm working on improving this by playing slowly with a metronome. This introduces a second problem that when I play slowly with a metronome, I lose the ebb-and-flow of the song, but I figure I can pick that up once I can play the tremolo smoothly.

BTW, I liked your Capricho Arabe video. Nice job.
