Ken,

Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. I totally overlooked these points in my rush to get the videos out within a week.

I'm on the road again, but I'll revisit the slurs and La Tarentela when I return on Monday. Looking forward to the exams!

btw - I have a new guitar (Elias Monet Bonne, traditional cedar top/green ebony back and sides) coming soon from the Guitar Salon International. Can't wait to start playing it! I'm hoping to be a good musician when I grow up!

Wow Mike. I've been looking on that website. I thought if I were going to buy another guitar, that would be the place I'd get it from. They're guitars always look mint, no matter how old. Congratulations on your purchase!

Congratulations, Mike. :okok:
It should be french polished top. You will play much easier with new guitar. :ouioui:

It is time for you to buy new microphone(stereo) set, Mike. Your guitars deserve better mics. :)
I am waiting for Neumann TLM103 stereo set. I have enough guitars and better recording gear will catch much better Bass. I was debating between a pair of Neumann KM184 and a pair of Neumann TLM103. Decided to go with large diaphragm condenser. :bye:

Wow, Ken. I remember last summer when I just joined the Delcamp board, I asked you what microphone you were using, and you informed me that it was a very basic USB-microphone - I think you said it was attached to your iphone.

Ken, your playing absolutely deserves high-end microphones. Good for you. But even now with your present set-up, your tones are so clear. Holy smokes - the sound you are producing with your excellent playing is going to get even better. I look forward to watching and listening to your future submissions.

Ken, (or anyone), how did you go about understanding how to play the rythym and timing in La Tarentela?
Linda K
Linda, I'm glad I can help you. :discussion:
When you watch La Tarantela from YouTube, click setting and change play speed to 0.5 to make half slower or you can even go 0.25 also. :ouioui:
You will hear rhythm clearly. :wink:

This is my final version of La Tarantela and I believe I got it. :D

I think you nailed it Ken. And thanks for the advice on slowing down playback with YouTube. I didn’t know that could be done! I’m trying it now, have some video up soon I hope.

..... tried counting out the written notation,
I assume you have counted 3 beats to the bar, each quaver (1/8 note) taking 1 beat and each crotchet (1/4 note) taking 2 beats. Try counting and tapping without playing anything.
Colin, you assume correctly. I very much like your suggestion of counting and tapping w/o playing anything. That would free up some desperately needed brain capacity. Thank you. Been a while since I’ve heard anyone use “quaver” and “crochet” for eighth and quarter notes. :casque:

I think possibly I have at last figured this out. At least I’ve got the count and rhythm in my head. My hands still think I’m crazy though. Tarentella. Much thanks to Ken and Colin for your advice on tackling this piece.
