Great to see you here my summer school friend! I hope all is well with the move to Boulder. Are you building guitars? Looking forward to your interaction on CGC.
I enjoyed the non submission video. Each of the works interest me. Your tone is rich, the guitar sounds resonant.
The vision of your playing, as illustrated in the goals, gives room for pleasure and creativity for me. I too like the “D Major time of year” thought.
Or should I say, 55 year old cranky man…haha.
Thanks for the video tour of the project. Way cool on the new guitar neck! I get it about your brother and Dad. Innovation is a way of staying alive.
The goals on level 6 all sound great. Your focus is admirable.
Looking forward to more,
I started to listen to the interview. Haha Narayan—-we may need a list. This subject interests me. I have held a contention that some of learning is figuring out what to unlearn.

Sounding great, I will be interested in the conversation with Simon today about the ornamentation. I am enjoying Dave’s masterclass as well.
See you later,

I would like to play Minuet in G.
See you soon,
You and I both have a romantic bone—-I guess CGC as whole is in the same camp. Early this morning the sky and stars were amazing. I think of your photographs. I am continually surprised at how challenged I am with the pieces. Fun though.
Happy playing my friend,
Thank you so much! I had not worked on this piece in a couple of years. It bothers me that my third and fourth finger are wimpy when shifting in measure 7. I am meeting with Simon today. How long should we struggle? I have some new ideas on how to finger the passage.
Good morning, thank you. Sometimes I want the fresh air, even if a bit cold. Haha about the three layers. I hope all is well your way. Looking forward to more if your duets!
My friend Mark,
Always a joy to hear from you. I am laughing now at the angle of the guitar—-I see it, thanks. The trouble I have is finding the strings. I am working on always knowing what position I am in. I happened to find the Un Dia page and noticed Simon placed the video there. I do not think I can watch it! I look forward to seeing your n…[Read more]
Thank you, I will report the hat compliment! It is early in the morning here, still raining, and I have the hat on. I want to practice some with the windy sounds and general quiet.
Thank you, I have a lesson with Simon today. I want to do a submission for a certificate sometime—-getting closer. I read about your B string ringing. I hope it is working now.
I practiced this week each day with a goal of improving my shifts, rhythm and legato. I am revisiting Minuet in G with the intention of improving aspects of my technique. I am having a lesson with Simon on Saturday.
My wife Rebecca knitted the hat for me. Tonight is special as I finished with my lectures for…[Read more]
