Espanoleta, Gaspar Sanz (with ornamentation). Still playing without a "m"nail. Seems to be taking forever to grow.

Here's my updated version of Maria Luisa. Still some mistakes, but I hope better than the first one. I am trying to learn to play through mistakes instead of stopping and starting again.

Rick - nicely done ... on Maria Luisa, how do you get the sound at 0:22 and 0:52? It sounds like a mini strum with the RH but it's not clear to me that it's in the sheet music. It's a nice touch though - I'm not complaining. Just wonder what the technique is. It looks like you're playing the notes in quick succession like I-M-A, rather than a strum down with P.

Also funny that you seem to make many of the same facial expressions I do when concentrating hard on the performance! :)

Thanks Carl. The chords you refer to are just arrpeggiated with the right hand, p-I-m-a. I do it a lot, sometimes too much. Still working on the Carcassi Valse. I just cant seem to get a clean pull off on M12. I'm just gonna record it and put it out there and move on. I probably won't keep this one I on my play list.

Here is my Carcassi Valse. Lots of mistakes. Very difficult to get a clean take with all the repeats. Done on this for now. :kap:

Bravo, Rick! A tough piece, a long piece, but you soldiered through it and your tone is excellent as always. No need to go further, you know the trouble spots and that it'll take more practice to get just right.

Well done, Haris! I didn't want to ask (since people often have personal reasons they have to put CG aside) but be assured, we missed you. Not that Rick wasn't good company ... but soon, his ship will sail ... literally, right Rick?

Thank you Carl, I am not proud of these recordings but after I did not play guitar for some months, now I have to hurry...

Good effort Haris. Of course we know with more time you can play these much better. But you have the essence down, rhythm, the correct notes, and good interpretations, good tempo, except like me you had to slow down in the challenging parts of the Carcassi Valse.
