A while ago I was subscribed to “Stand Partners for Life”, but there did not seem to be new episodes coming out. I’ll have to check back
I know exactly what you mean. I live quite a bit farther from work than many of my colleagues, but wouldn’t have it any other way. The Sticky Notes podcasts tend to be about 50 minutes, but the…[Read more]
Glad you enjoyed it, Janie. Just in case the vibrato didn’t work, I wore my running shoes (despite the snow). I suppose you know the rest of the joke, but just in case:
Narayan: “you don’t seriously think that you can out run a polar bear just by wearing running shoes”
Mark: “I don’t have to out run a polar bear; I only have to out run you”
I think it would be difficult to find many of us posting that open mics went as well as we wanted them to. Seems to me that you did just fine. I also have to admit that I did enjoy the cinematography.

Despite searching diligently, I have been unable to find a photograph in which the 2 of them appear together..
As we end this month of Thanksgiving & Tarrega, and enter the holiday season of Mertz & merriment, I wanted to once again express my gratitude to all who have moderated and contributed to the Composer of the Month Club discussions. Specifically, a million thanks to Scott for this fabulous exploration of Tarrega, @gshell51 for his spectacular Sor…[Read more]
These are all open string RH studies
Nice work on the admittedly overplayed, but lovely, Lagrima.
Ciao for now,
My memory isn’t what it used to be (and it was never all that great), but I believe the first Tarrega piece I ever heard was David Russell playing La alborada (which apparently means “morning”) as an encore many many years ago. It’s at about 11 minutes into this video, although I think that the entire 13 minutes is worth listening…[Read more]
