I love it. Bravo Alan.

I went up into the attic and found a Stradivarius and a Rembrandt.
Unfortunately Stradivarius was a terrible painter and Rembrandt made lousy violins.

Thanks guys !

Just to let you know, in this video I play a Castelluccia E1 (low-price guitar, 700€) and D'Addario Carbon normal tension strings (J45FF).

Tomorrow I'll take time to tell you what gear I'm using to record this... if you're interested. ;)

Nice playing. Your extremely long fingers help a lot on performing this.

The back-and-forth video edits are visually very annoying. Why not just stay in one camera position? It is not even two minutes long.

Excellent Alan, I enjoyed your playing very much. I agree with David's comment that your long fingers help a lot with the stretches for performing this Prelude.

I realise now too that it's a bit too much... Although, I have 2 cameras, and I still like the idea of filming two different perspectives. I will be careful on my next videos, thanks for your feedback on this !

Thanks astro64 :)

For those who are interested, I'm using a matched pair of Oktavas MK012-01 at ~35cm of the guitar top. At ~70cm I have a Zoom Q8 wich XY mics take the room reverb. I made a mix between the two (-3dB on the Oktavas and around -9dB for the Zoom XY) and finally, a light equalization.

I did, thank you Alan. :D

Out of interest, do you suffer from any pain in your right wrist when playing for prolonged periods? I only ask as it appears quite curved in order to be perpendicular to the strings. I wonder if you lowered the guitar a smidge if your wrist would straighten out...?
Negative, I am a meat popsicle.

Actually, my wrist is completely relaxed. This right-hand position is quite "old school", although there's still several guitarists who play that way in France, because a lot of guitarists and teachers were formed since the 1980's by Lagoya. The basic principle of this position is to let the hand fall, completely relaxed, and then turn lighlty the wrist in order that the fingers face the strings. This position is quite rare now, though I'm in quite good company :
