This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv).

This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed. However, we can say in our posts "you can hear a model interpretation by such and such a guitarist on such and such a site".

This forum serves as a place of mutual help if we are stuck on a technical or musical difficulty, whether the problem stems from the notes, the rhythm, the dynamics, or the fingering. We can post several successive versions of the extract, as our work on it progresses. This will serve to help not only the member who is presenting his work, but also indirectly the dozens of other members who are having the same issues with the same passage, but who don't have the equipment or the technical knowledge to post a recording.

As a rule there should be just one topic per work. If several discussions arise on the same work, the moderators will merge the threads together.

I have been working on this one for a while now. It's good to go in front of the microphone...all the weak areas are laid bare :oops:
Here is an initial recording of the various sections (extract), minus the introduction marked Andante Largo. It can only get better! :)

Hi Cary, thank you for showing us that even an unperfect take of this great work is worth hearing.
Most of us can learn out of it. And we might loose the fear of showing an audio file which is not perfect.

:bravo:

I'm inspired to go back and have another go at this tricky piece. Thanks, Cary.

Very well done so far! You should definitely upload a video of yourself playing the entire piece when you're ready. It can only be great :bravo:

Nice! I played that piece many years ago in music school. I'd all but forgotten how pretty it is. Thanks for posting are reminding me of a treasure. Keep at it, it's going to be great when you post the "video"!

The technique is there, but there are obvious spots to be improved. Slow down with the metronome and play the piece extremely slow for no less than one week DO NOT do less than one week. Once you do this, you will find that muscle memory is your best friend.

Hi,
I'm a new member so I'm unable to listen to the excerpts but I'm eager to hear them. (I know this thread is a few years old...)

I played this in school years ago and it's still my favorite piece I studied. I've thought about having a go at it again but making sure I do it right this time and don't gloss over the trickier sections.

When I do get this piece up and running I'd love to post excerpts as well and maybe get some feedback.
