Hello Havard,

How nice to see what you've been doing during the summer! Progress goes on and on, as it seems. :bravo: Just like you I've been studying already some pieces of D06. And I played through all the Sor and Tarrega stuff from D04, D05 and D06. So I knew Tarrega's Chopin arrangement and was wondering what would happen at the first beat of bar 13. :D No problem though! I enjoyed listening.
We can count the days now untill the start of D06 :bye:

The exact date is not known to me yet. Last year the lessons started on 10th of September, and I can only assume that the timetable will be similar this year. We'll probably know more in a week or two.

Bravo Goran, in this new version is you played more fluidly, especially on the second part. On your first video it was at a slower pace as if you were learning, but on this new video it is as if you were performing.

I very much agree with Bea. This recording is played with both more confidence and finesse! Good work, Goran :bravo:

:bravo: Goran. I really enjoyed it. :casque: I think it would be well received if you decided to post it in the Our recordings of Early music section of the forum. One suggestion I have for improvement is that you get even more confident on the triplets (bar 3, and 19) in the Entree. I think you are a tiny bit too slow there. Try to practice those sections at a slightly (increasingly) faster tempo.

Did you scroll down a bit, samljer? All of the texts are in four different languages, including English.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I have a short question regarding the courses (I'm also not sure if this is the right thread for those kind of questions, correct me if I'm wrong):

If I were to take part this year I'd somehow need to get my hands on a classical guitar since I only own a steel-string one.
Buying one is out of the question at the moment, I could afford a cheap one but I'd have to replace that one anyways sooner or later.
Renting a guitar would amount to the same thing: I'd spend a couple hundred bucks on something thats not a permanent solution anyways.
It would be much more comfortable if I could practice with my steel string guitar and then invest in a more sophisticated nylon when I'm sure I'll really stick to playing CG AND I actually have the ressources to buy one.

So, has anybody here made the transition from steel-string to nylon? Would I encounter a lot of technical problems when switching guitars or is it more or less just a matter of easy readjustment?

Also: I've never recorded anything before, how much would I approximately need to spend on equipment for decent audio quality?


:merci: in advance
