Prelude BWV 998. As I don't Have a lot of free time it should make me busy a long time...
Good luck and have fun! That is such a beautiful piece that's definitely on my distant future to-do list.
Thank you! As expected, it will be a long learning curve!
Good Luck to you too !

I try to learn how to sell guitars. The separation from your treasured lovely instruments is hard. I try to think that the guitar will come to a “better” home, and it will be taken care of …..damn it’s hard to sell….
Is it only me who is “grumpy” or …

I'm working on Sor and Carcassi etudes, returning after a bit of time away from guitar.

This thread is very inspiring!

Tarrega Sueno (mazurka) for grade 6 (ABRSM). Not the tremolo 'sueno' that I battled with a while back before realising it was the wrong one!

After memorizing the two Danzas Españolas (No. 5 and 10) by Granados I memorize now the first set of the moonlight sonata by Beethoven, both, the guitar and the piano version.

I'm re-learning a Praetorius Ballet from a very old transcription done by my college guitar teacher, Dennis Schuck (I have no idea where he is now: I wish I did), the only guitar teacher I've had who was worth a damn.

What I'm working from is what we all tended to work from 45 years ago: a photocopy of a photocopy of a handwritten score larded with penciled in corrections, smudged notes, and ambiguous notation (is that a natural sign? a C#? or just a smudge?).
