Ouch! That's what I thought you would say . . . But you wouldn't have been so capricious if I had remembered to mention that it is signed on the lower bout by Esteban. It seems he saw Picasso do that on a guitar owned by Manitas de Plata.riffmeister wrote:Martin, Robert, thanks for your kind words! I have a bunch of recordings posted here. You should be able to find them by searching on 'meister', 'riffmeister', and 'williams'. (I can't seem to figure out what my name is)
Ramon......ha, ha.....this is what I think of your trade offer!
Riff - Have you tried this at 80 or 85? I'm curious to know what you think. You said you would re-record it at a slower tempo. How about doing that, and maybe even play it first at the original tempo followed by the slower tempo back to back. Should be interesting.riffmeister wrote:Ramon, on my metronome it's played at about 108 bpm. What tempo would you like to hear it at? I can make another recording easily enough.....
I just noticed that. One of my students just did a test of 12 sets of strings, one set per week, on his guitar (a Traphagen) and the J45s were the perfect compliment. Mellow, as you said. Yet clear and balanced. Guitars are so finicky.I just put a set of D'Addario EJ45 normal tension nylon strings on the guitar for a little bit more mellow sound.
I'll admit I'm not "feeling it" at the slower tempo. Although when I listen to the first recording it does sound a wee bit fast. Maybe something in the mid 90s bpm would be the "sweet spot".......Lawler wrote:I like the slower tempo for the piece though your playing in the original recording hits me as more expressive.
I'm emailing you a bowl of porridge.petermc61 wrote:Sounds like Goldilocks and the three bears. The first tempo is a bit fast, the second a bit slow, and the upcoming one will be JUST RIGHT!
