One of my favorites by Sor. You play it beautifully, sounds like the sweetest music box I've ever heard. The minor section had the appropriate melancholic feel. Nice sound on your recording, almost Segovia-like in places with a similar spacious reverb. Thank you.

:bravo: :merci:

Regards, Ray

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.

Leyenda, that was a fantastic performance. It's largely how I hear the piece in my head, and how I'd play it, if I could. Please forgive me, but the recording isn't up to your standard of playing . . . the breathing is too loud (for me,) and there's some harshness that I suspect you didn't play. Pardon my opinionated ways but I'd use a good (ie $200) directional mic, aimed just behind the bridge, with minimal added reverb. May I ask, what guitar do you play?
