Hey Glassy - I loved it. Really sensitive, great tone color - for me...perfect tempo.
I'm a slow-tempo junkie, though haha.
I remember seeing a thread by you asking if you were a mediocre guitarist. I guess that depends on your definition, that word usually has a negative connotation. If you mean amateur, then yes. But I consider myself the same. And that doesn't mean throwing in the towel and stopping improvement. Just like any professional, we continue to improve.
I think this recording stands out from the others in terms of playing, but maybe that's just me.
Here are a few easy things you can do to improve your recordings and recitals:
1.) make sure your guitar is always in tune (and it sounds great on this recording but a little off sometimes on others) and if it's tuned up perfectly but sounds off as you start fretting notes, maybe the intonation needs adjusting. You can check this with your tuner. Check each note up the fretboard on every string with your tuner and see if the notes tend to get sharp as you go up. If they do from frets 6-12, you can adjust intonation at the saddle. If they do at frets 1-5, you can adjust at the nut. The nut is more difficult but not impossible to adjust.
2.) if you're playing with nails, make sure you have no jagged edges and that they are as smooth as possible. Polishing with all of the grits of micromesh up to 12,000 does wonders for tone
3.) Try to eliminate as much string noise from the left hand as possible. I think a little is ok and maybe even desirable, but we want to keep it at a minimum. There are a number of exercises that can be done to accomplish this.
Anyways, keep up the progress - I think this recording represents a new milestone in your playing. Great job!
