This is a perfect example of a piece that is easy to play, but takes a lot of interpretation to really make it sing - which you did very well.

BTW, I found that Paganini's Ghiribizzi really helped be learn the higher positions, so don't shy away form them at all!

Very pretty piece - and well played too. I love the way it gathers pace in the second section! :casque: :merci:

Thanks for the comments :)

I do really enjoy some Paganini. I've been obsessed lately with hearing these romantic period composers played on period instruments with period technique. For Paganini there's a great album of Rosario Conte on the Carpe Diem label.

Here's a sample:

Paganinis Ghiribizzi are beautiful pieces I did not know exist until recently. When guitar players mention Paganini, mostly his Capprici were cited and how hard and challenging they were. So I did not even look closer at Paganinis works in decades of my playing.

When I watched your video today I noticed your right hand in particular. It looks like you are playing "without" nails or with very short nails, though your tone occasionally sounds brillant and clear like with modern "nail technique". After all, your decision to care for good tone put together with Emilio Pujol's citation
"Speed is the enemy of emotion." - Emilio Pujol
... yields fruit: For my taste your playing is smooth, relaxed, melodic and heartfelt.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi too - thanks for the feedback. The man playing in the video is Rosario Conte, not me :) But you are right, he's playing without nails and a period appropriate technique. My recording is the original post of this thread and it was done with nylong strings and nails. Since then, I've been playing without nails on gut strings so I'll have to re-record this one for a comparison.

You get a nice tone in your original recording, and thanks for the Rosario Conte video, I enjoyed it.

Sweet thanks! I love Paganini and Conte :)

I just did an updated recording of this one using my gut strings and no-nails approach that I've been working on for a couple of years: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=117691
