Regondi, Giulio - Etude No.3 from Ten Etudes for Guitar

I hope you enjoy this etude. I have embarked on a quest to learn a hard etude a month; this is my first one. I have the next few months planned out, but feel free to make repertoire suggestions.
Thanks,
M

Well played, isn't this quite easy for you compared to say the Piazzolla tango suite which you play really well. ?
How does the Hill hold up to the Smallman out of interest?
Oh, try Villa Lobos 2.

Hi Gary,
Thanks. I found this remarkably tricky to play to be honest. I think difficulty can come in many guises; with the Piazzolla (and with my Legnani recordings) the main difficulties are co-ordination and velocity, both of which are hard to achieve, but you can see a very obvious path towards them (for me anyway). With rep like the Regondi, I find getting everything clean and reliable whilst also musical to be seriously challenging. The Regondi is also a little relentless, so one needs to develop either a very light touch or some huge guns.
Funnily enough, this months' etude in Etude Quest is the VL Etude 2, so great recommendation!
The Hill stands up ok, but like anything, it can't compare to the strengths of the Smallman, specifically the shear volume and clarity. The Hill however can achieve some great subtlety, timbrel (?) verity and dynamic range. Both S and H are great instruments but they are the type of guitar to kick your proverbial if you are a micrometer out of place.

Excellent music and playing, not a bad recording either. Regondi too easy, seriously? This video shows an incredible amount of technical skill and musicality.

Stephen: Regondi 2 is also lovely and tricky, I'll definitely try it at some point down the line. Yeah I played it at the slower end of Allegro, I will definitely ramp up the tempo once it's under my fingers more. For the most part I approached this not as a slur speed study, but as a complex LH, chord, twisty, buzzy piece with the aim to focus on creating a musical performance with minimal buzzes, squeaks and pops. Any thoughts on LH cleanliness are very welcome. Speed and slurs are this months' focus :chaud:

Please do! It looks like you are recording in mono and I have to say it's refreshing if you are, the guitar is not really big enough to make a massive difference in stereo in my opinion, but then I am a bit of a lo-fi guy :)
