Very well done. Congratulations.
Thanks. Dave did an awesome review of my playing that will be very helpful moving forward. The two most notable things to incorporate into my practice will be moving my RH position a little to the left, and not to overdo the rubato.
Thanks Dave B,
Wow! Very nice. I really enjoy listening to you play. Your technique is solid and is only surpassed by your musicianship. I loved the cross-string trills and articulation in the Bach. The Walton Bagatelles are among my favorite pieces and you I loved your performance. You also looked very relaxed and very much in command of every piece…[Read more]

Awesome playing. I enjoyed it very much.
Congratulations on such a wonderful submission. I really enjoyed listening to your entire performance. You are very musical and you play with a lot of grace and sensitivity.
I will try that. I need to make it a lot more musical without putting too much rubato in it. I may try and slow the outer sections down a bit and add just a little rubato and phasing. I tried to to keep it mostly in time. Thanks for your suggestions.
I have been working on Villa Lobos Prelude No. 4 for a while now. The middle arpeggio section is certainly a challenge. For some reason I can’t help rushing it and then mistakes happen. Here is a practice recording, Any and all comments, critiques, and suggestions are welcome. Thanks
Thanks for listening. I will let you know when I schedule a recital. Probably be next summer. Although, it probably won’t be worth the five hour drive from St. Louis. Maybe I will schedule it around a Maytag Concert. That would be well worth the drive.

Congratulations on a fine submission. Your repertoire pieces were very nicely played. I especially enjoyed Birds Flew Over the Spire. Your performance has inspired me to want to learn it.
I really, really appreciate all of your compliments and comments. It is so rewarding to be part of a community where there are so many people that are passionate about music and the guitar. This is not simply a virtual guitar site for guitar lessons, it is a legitimate course for quality music education and structured guitar instruction for real…[Read more]
Thank you Kari and Nels for your kind comments. As you are aware, the exam submissions are a lot of work, but very rewarding when done. As for celebration…my wife made Mojitos yesterday!
