Thank you Scott, Joseph, Bruce.
Scott, really great job for only 1 day working on it. I agree with you on the rests. I tried to honor them in my playing. The one that was the biggest pain for me was in measure 8 on the first beat. By the time this beat comes around the D half note from beat 3 in measure 7 is still rising, and of course the G…[Read more]
Thank you Michael, Janie, Richard.
Michael, we talked a little bit about this piece in VA. But I don’t think I went into that much detail about how I feel about the piece. I played this piece regularly a couple of years ago. I even played it during my lesson at the first Summer School in 2017. It is interesting to think about this piece…[Read more]

Jeffery McFadden is a really great player, audio engineer and arranger. He has several pieces in the RCM books that I really like. I don’t have this book but it looks interesting. Do share what you thought of the book after you’ve gone through a bit of it. I’d be curious to know how you like it.
Hopefully other folks take up your challenge to play Romanze (No 9 from Schule für die Guitare). You and Richard both did wonderful jobs on it. Here is my entry into the challenge.
I have been practicing composition for the last couple of years. Last year another member and I had a composition challenge, where each month we would work on composing a piece based on an idea. We went for 8 months before we started running out of ideas and energy. I haven’t composed anything since then but have done some arranging and…[Read more]
Really beautiful playing Donna. I was so impressed with this when I received it for the podcast and was so happy to include it. The video is really well done. Oh and that pinky is looking really good in this video.
This week the Holiday episode of the Member’s podcast was released. It seems it was a big hit and I’m already looking forward to doing it again next year. If you haven’t checked it out yet please do. It includes contributions from 16 different members. You can leave a message on the podcast page congratulating all those that playe…[Read more]
I love how Narayan sparkles! Is he a vampire? I thought you guys did really great on this piece. The snow was a nice touch. I would have started your own thread with this so you can get more eyeballs and earholes on your wonderful video.

Hi Rob! Welcome to CGC. I’m not from around there, I’m in New Hamsphire in the US, but I just wanted to say hi an welcome you to this community.
As the planning for the Virginia Meetup in November were getting started, Michael mentioned wanting to have the members perform another of my compositions. Since I had already been thinking about the Holiday episode of member’s podcast, I thought it would be wonderful to have Auld Lang Syne as the closing piece. What would be even more wonderful…[Read more]
