This forum is for our discussions on any classical guitar works. Regardless of whether these works are still under copyright, we can illustrate our discussions with extracts to a maximum length of 8 bars or 30 seconds, using attached audio files (mp3, wav or wma) or video files (mov or wmv). Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed.

Only attached files are permitted. Links to audio and video files are not allowed. However, we can say in our posts "you can hear a model interpretation by such and such a guitarist on such and such a site".
This forum serves as a place of mutual help if we are stuck on a technical or musical difficulty, whether the problem stems from the notes, the rhythm, the dynamics, or the fingering. We can post several successive versions of the extract, as our work on it progresses. This will serve to help not only the member who is presenting his work, but also indirectly the dozens of other members who are having the same issues with the same passage, but who don't have the equipment or the technical knowledge to post a recording.
As a rule there should be just one topic per work. If several discussions arise on the same work, the moderators will merge the threads together.

I'm tossing up between two different musical ideas at the moment; specifically, the bar preceding the pedal A in the bass at the very end of the excerpt. I played the bars preceding this to give a better musical context.
Let me know if you guys prefer one or two (I added in an E in the bass to tie the phrases together in the first one -- it's absent from the original edition).

I prefer the 2nd version without the E. To me the first version sounds a little 'cheapish' ...

The second one definitely sounds better to me, as the repeated A bass notes that follow, then have more impact. If I remember correctly, Julian Bream plays the first of those bass notes with a slight accent.
