Thank you Erik!

Just saw this played. beautiful piece. And hence why I registered tonight. Reminds me of another tune Wild Mountain Thyme.

Thank you, Erik.
I play this MP3 when I'm struggling with practice as it reminds me why I'm learning to play.
Some day I WILL play like this.
Thanks again.

Very nicely done. It seems we were both up late with Neil Gow last night :) Its interesting to me how this piece evokes different emotions at different tempos. Yours is very mournful, laden with sadness while Denian's version at a higher tempo has a feeling of release from the sadness of loss while still evoking the pain.

Best,

Ken


Indeed!
It was Denian's version on YouTube which brought me here.
I thoroughly enjoy both! :D
