My duo friend and I played it through this afternoon. The Largo has it’s obvious challenges in the latter part. The Rondo is the most famous but it’s hard for me as guitar 1 in a few measures. Love the Minore! So dark and minor! Then it resolves to the Rondo! Our kind group who listened was enthusiastic. We need a bit more practice to be able to…[Read more]

So beautiful! You and Berta both!
Yeah, Kari, keep the tempo slow for as long as it takes. Scott, I’m like you. I want to play up to speed right now! But this is the way to go esp with a really challenging piece. I’m working on the trills and my guitar teacher puts in another 4242 trill on the 3rd beat of the 15th measure. I’m glossing over the trills right now but I’m getting…[Read more]
Hey Kari. You’re making great progress! I was wondering why you were playing it in a higher position but I see you were having fun sight reading! Nice. Great idea! I like to sight read every day too. And its helpful getting a little reminder in my inbox that tells me to practice the Bourree. Thanks for posting!
Thank you Chris for working on your compositions. It’s so important in our guitar world to get to read new stuff. It’s super hard to compose for guitar so to have you doing so is really great! BTW Citizen Snips is very readable. It’s difficult but not impossible. Unless you demand weirdo positions. Which you prob do. 🤪Anyway keep it up. I love it!
I loved this entire episode Roger. My yellow Visesnut guitar case twin Richard was very entertaining and I so enjoyed the Reginald Smith Brindle episode. But my new friend , Marion and her husband Bruce are stellar in my world.Thank you so much for recording my duet with Jacques.
Jeff! Great work! Dave is amazing! Right? I think I told you this, but I loved hearing your’s and Tom’a duet! The Carulli! I am working on the same piece with my duo friend. You guys were awesome! I hope we can rock it some day they way you guys did! Such a great piece!
Thanks Bill, for finding and posting this Ted Talk. I agree. I can feel those fireworks going off in my brain when I play my guitar. Today I have already shared this video with some key musicians in my life.
Martha, that is so profound. “If it doesn’t mean something to you, it won’t mean anything to your audience.”
We can learn from other instrumentalists. I love sitting in on my daughter’s piano masterclasses each month. Huge instruction that I feel translates to guitar. I’ve learned a lot from piano class.
