I still have to work on this wonderful piece. You will see some brum there, some bad slur, etc. Anyway it is the first time I record Capricho Arabe and I must tell it was the 3 th shoot :).
In my opinion it is still "unfinished bussines", but since we still don't have in this section this Capricho this is my try (I know Jamie already post in the mp3 section a beautiful interpretation, I think I should ask him the permision to mouve it here).
Your comments will be wellcome (even the unfair comments Homayoon :), just kidding :)).
Prepare the gun to shoot the player :war: :pirate:

:okok: :bravo: :okok: VERY NICE Gorobete!!!

I tell you what - I'm pretty sure I could actually smell the cammel dung burning in the fires while sand blew against the side oy my tent --- and I think I caught just a whiff of fajitas being cooked over those fires --- QUITE an accomplishment!!!

I'm just not sure what else to say, guy!!

You played very nice. Nice bass sound. I never played this piece, even though I have the music for it.

It is nice to listen to you play. Great work, friend. And oh, what a nice ascending scale, in the middle of the piece, at the turn-around.
Great work, Gorobete!

Thank you!

Luci, I'll tell you, you always come up with artistic solutions to technical problems and manage to pull it off. If that sounds like a left-handed compliment, it isn't my intention at all. There are guys on the web who have videos at their sites who play things note perfect and at the end it is boring as hell. You're never boring. Even down to the Picardy 3rd on the final chord, you're going to find the artistic juice. I love it. Very good indeed.

Thank you all for your patience (it takes some time to download almost 7 MB :) ).
Hav: You have a beautiful image of this Capricho :). Must be painted :).
Florentin and Tom: thank you, your comments are realy apreciated. I am happy you like it and I can see you have seen only the good parts.
Tom, I am glad you can find this a nice try.
I also can see very clearly the bad parts.
Tom I am not shure I correct understand the expression "left handed compliment". My english is poor some times :oops: . :)

"left-handed compliment" inseamna un compliment cu inteles dublu.

also, yes, I heard the good parts, and the little slips of the finger. I don't care much for the little slips of the finger. 2:59 kind of stands out to me a little bit, when you hit that low D... :)

well, it happens.

Good job!

That was really beautiful Luci. The scale runs are timed to perfection, especially the slow one which ends at about 2.50 and the little ones before it. Great feeling, legato, rubato, tomato - oops, scrub that last one.
Well done.

Thank you tenn!
The tomato is OK :). I will expect some more, maybe I will make a salat :).

I have to agree with Hav, and tomc. Very well done, and 'soulful'? does that work?

I haven't had the time to go over this one yet, even if I've had the sheets for quite some time.

owl and APribilski,
Thank you for your kind replays. It is a wonderful piece and it is a great feeling to play it.
I noticed I play this piece in a different way every time I play it.

Finaly I resized a litle the record, but still has 3 Mb.

I listened to this, again. Just wanted to tell you how much I like it. :)

Oooooh Gorobete that's wonderful!!!
I second every comment above: a wonderful playing, full of feeling and artistic, non-technical and very expressive interpretation!!!

A very very nice gift for all of us! I love the strong basses, the scales and the tempo of every passage.
Thank you and :bravo: :okok: :applauso:!!!

Hi dear Gorobete,

I just paid a visit to this section by chance and I found out about your Capricho Arabe.
My friend, did you think that I was lying in wait for a moment to criticize you with unfair comments!!!!!!! Well, if that was on your mind, maybe you should post another mp3, because this one is wonderful and I enjoyed listening to your interpretation a lot.
It was expressive and played with a touch of oriental feelings.
I sincerely congratulate you and hope you give me some good reason to return some unfair comment (just kidding). :kap: But I guess you are not. We are all learning from each other and this is a great place for international friendship.

Happy Guitar
