Hi Lucy and all Others,
I have recently detected this thread and read the cross communication
and heard your both versions. It is quite amazing, in fact, what such an
inspirational conversation can accomplish. Your second version is such
an improvement. Lots of recommendation and different comments have
been communicated with you. Therefore no further by me.
In the meanwhile I expect that you are working with this wonderfull piece
of Tarrega and have similar "problems" with other parts, Or ?
Well I had them also, so say thirty years ago. And I worked same hard way
and I was lucky to have a great friend to advise me how to master this
piece. Meanwhile this friend is a Prof. of guitar musik and resident in Spain.
I think, nothing is better than to internalize such a melody.
Have a look at the following link and listen to him in the time window 0:40 - 0:50.
It is one of the best interpretations of Capricho arabe:
Best wishes for your further impovement
