English Dance

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.

Sounds very nicely played - can you improve your recording set up?

Thank you pogmoor. :) I wasn't sure if it was my headphones with some slight distortion if that's what you mean. I have a Yamaha Pocketrak recorder and also the Sony Sound Forge program.

It is by Carulli, there are several versions on YT of the same piece.

I'd rather say it is by Carcassi.

I've got Harmon Kardon Soundstick speakers which are reasonably good quality. Your recording sounds very distorted - as if you've set the level too high.

I must apologize. It is by Carulli. In some editions it is called "Anglaise".

I've figured it out: It's Carulli's Op. 121 no. 6. In Carulli Breviary it is called "Anglaise" :D .

:bravo: :bravo: :bravo: You played this piece very well. It's a fairly simple tune, but one thing I have learned is that simple tunes invite opportunities to perfect counting and articulation. I find myself revisiting tunes that I thought to be too simple as I became a more advanced player.

My opinion is that no matter how advanced you become, you should return to these basic tunes-You will be amazed how they will sound two or three years from now.

Excellent! Your interpretation is very sensitive. Keep up the good work!

When I first started studying, that first high note (G, I think?) and then the descending melody fills in the second portion of the piece killed me. Despite the technical recording difficulty, it sounds very good. Keep plugging away!
