Thanks for the guitar info Gary. I've just taken a look at the sale section, it does look a fine guitar. Someone is going to be very happy with that purchase. It's a shame you're selling the guitar as you make a great partnership.

Well let's just say I'm not rushing to sell it, if it doesn't sell I'll be quite happy. Compared it to a £4K luthier made lattice double top and it certainly held its own.

Wow!!! Bravo, Maestro! What a performance!

From the cheap seats, I wonder how in the world you or anyone memorizes this.
Thanks, I memorise 2-4 bars at a time, I find it much easier to look at the fretboard rather than read and play at the same time.
High Gary, beautifully played!

That's how I learn a piece also since I can't sight read and rely on my ears and memory. Love this piece! I've been playing bits of it by ear from listening to recordings for a long time. I'll have to find the score and try to learn it. What's a good one (ideally free online) to get?

As for technical difficulty, how would you rate this piece compared to the Chaconne?

I personally find this harder than the Chaconne, most of the chaconne isn't that technically demanding.
I used the Willard edition just for the notes and copied the fingerings from John Williams.
