Hi,

This is a little waltz from the Iceland guitar school collection by Eythor Thorlaksson. Recorded with Edirol R09HR & Colin Morrison guitar.

A little pic of my guitar.

You have such a knack for finding and recording small gems. As always your playing is smooth and beautiful. Other than the Carcassi I have enjoyed everything you have posted recently. (BTW, its Carcassi, not your playing of him. I don't know what it is but I just don't care for his compositions).

I swear I am going to download all of your recordings (except Carcassi) and group them into a David McHarg playlist on my iPod!

Thanks. Its a catchy little melody.

Kenbobpdx good to hear you enjoy these little pieces. About 2 years ago when i started back playing i decided it was time to address my sight reading and the only way to really improve is to read lots so i spend a little time each day and sight read pieces from various collections including the delcamp collections, iceland guitar school and many many others, along the way you come across some great little pieces that are a joy to play. I also find you can learn a lot about melody, phrasing etc etc by playing these little pieces.

That is a great idea. I am a little over a year back to playing CG regularly. I know what you mean about the sight reading. My skills keep getting better and better but your approach is a worthy one. The idea of playing small pieces well and bringing so much out of them is a very good idea that more of us should probably emulate. Thanks so much for the idea and great recordings.

One of joys of this website is finding these gems I never would have heard otherwise.
