You show the reason for every note. Great!

I'll try your fingering of this piece--I play it mostly all in the first position. Easier pieces played well are still beautiful!

Hi friends, thank you all for having a listen and your compliments.

Exactly! This is the reason why I like to go back to my childhood pieces and enjoy them once again.

Beautiful, that blows my playing of this piece out of the water! Maybe if I keep playing this for another ten years I can sound a fraction as good :)

And I really love that guitar. Is it gut string and do you use no-nails technique for it?

Hi powderedtoastman! I recommend not to stick to a study for extended periods of time. Rather move away from it and pick some more or go one by one. If you'd return to it some months or even years later, you may be surprised how much better it most probably will sound.

No, the strings are Aquila 19C and I do play using nails, although relatively short ones.

I like your playing, guitar and this type of sound man!!
Beside your guitar, any another guitar sound like this? Or skill matter?

Hi keithwwk. Any romantic guitar https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romantic_guitar would sound somewhat similar, as they are generally of lower size/volume compared to modern classical. Tone of each player changes over time, so the overall skill definitely matters too.

I really enjoyed your playing, you played with expression and feeling.
Can you recommend a particular model of this guitar to purchase? I want one.
Thanks for sharing your music,

Hi David, it was made by this guy http://okenicaguitars.com/contact.php?lang=en - his pages show some instruments which I'd say differ only slightly, in decorations (veneers, fingerboard cutoff...), but are all the same inside (bracing patterns) - anyway, the best you could do is to ask him.

Thank you for the information...I'm having a problem getting an e-mail to him (need to adjust my address info). Would you know a close approximate price he's asking for his romantic guitars?
Thanks again,
David V.
