I recorded this in a church to test out the guitar in more resonant setting - I have added no audio processing at all.

Impressive - think it will be a while before I tackle those pieces!

:bravo: Well played Adrian!! :casque:

Those are not easy pieces, are they!

The tapping of your foot was a bit like an optional cajon! :)

Your guitar sounded lovely in that church.

thank, both of you for listening

Yes, after seeing myself tapping, I have consciously tried to limit that bad habit!

Hey, some years back, I saw John Williams tapping his foot on TV, when playing Vivaldi. I think it was the RV93 concerto. But, I suppose it wasn't audible!

But isn't foot tapping ok if it's helping with the pulse? As long as it's not too loud to obscure the music?

By the way, was I right in thinking that you'd warmed up a bit by the time you'd got to Sevilla? It seemed a bit more fluid but then again, I don't know the relative complexity of the pieces. I just know that I'm not ready to tackle them yet!

Maybe - Mallorca is a lot easier, but needs to be played very smoothly and legato - so thanks for pointing that out. I'm always learning, it never stops.

I would say that Sevilla is one of the hardest pieces that is also very popular for the guitar.
