Wow, this is an awesome piece, I have never heard it before. It sounds very difficult, a good challenge though. Your playing is extremely fluid and precise, I enjoyed listening to this very much! Can you point me to the transcription of this piece? The guitar sound you have here is superb as well by the way!

Thanks, Charles, BFG, Jamie, onur, and Alana! Now I have to go out and buy bigger hats to fit my growing head! :D

Hi Jeff,

I can only say: I'm speechless. This is said to be Albeniz' most difficult piece, and I've heard it only very rarely played so well! You play it with great emotion, and you convey this tipical "dark" Albeniz feeling very well! I like your tempo, and even the extremely difficult fast passage is almost perfect! If ou don't mind asking me: may we expect to hear some more Albeniz from you?

Wonderfully played! This is indeed an extremely hard piece to play well - and you managed to do it. Brilliantly done! :D

Thank you, Løød and Mark. I'm glad you guys liked it.

Mark, I've still got some work to do on this one, but after that, I'm thinking of tackling Sevilla.

That's not an easy one, either... II presonally find it even more tricky than Cataluña, but keeping this performance of yours in mind, I'm very sure you can do it. I'm indeed looking forward to your interpretation of it! :D

Speechless is the best word I can find to describe my impressions :shock:

I can't even think of the number of hours you probably spent on it, but the result is worth it, grandiose, so don't worry if your head is growing, it's a normal side effect :lol:

Hi Jeff,

great job !!!!

I tried to play this piece once but I did not menaged it :-(

Not only the middle part is terribly difficult- also some chords changes in the beginning.
it needs some polish as you said, but genarally you are on the right way to play it very well.

thanks for playing
