Again, pardon for the novella I just wrote…it really looked modest until I hit submit and it appeared looking almost epic and twice the size. While I am here, the chromatic triplet business should have read “c” it is. Any further questions about the horn can be gladly addressed to me as a personal message. Cheers, Joseph
I really like to hear lots of versions! I am not bringing this piece quickly to a presentation standard, but I discovered the QuickTime player today and had a lot of fun recording and getting an outside impression of myself playing the Romanze. I’m hoping an intuitive choosing of right hand fingerings will come more naturally in the future.…[Read more]
Thank you Richard for all the good input. I had a blast working on the piece this evening and feel somewhat heartened. There is really so much one could do in such a short piece. I was a tad thrilled to just read it is marked Adagio ….more time for the fingers to get around and more time for soulful longing, etc. May the Romanzefest…[Read more]
Thank you Scott and Roger, Nice performances that make me wish I could join the challenge. After trying the piece this morning I know I will need some weeks to get fluent, but it is a real gem to work on. Looking forward to making it part of my repertoire. Great discussion of details, Scott. Thought provoking and useful. I just ordered the…[Read more]
Hi Cindy, Thanks for the beautiful Largo, great sound. I am gleaning so much good stuff every day thanks to you all sharing. Thank you for sharing your goals….it helps this beginner to learn the process of advancing. I love the exchange with Robert about practicing and thanks to Donna for sharing about flying fingers. The Brian Bowersox…[Read more]
Really nice, Narayan. What a great piece to already have memorized. You will have great fun playing and replaying….I envy you. Great harmonies and progressions in that gem and lovely to see it coming from Ronda, Spain. Ronda is magical.
Welcome Bob. CGC is a wonderful resource and place to be. I spend the summers in Santa Fe and have visited Silver City several times….a great place. Happy guitar journey in the Land of Enchantment. Joseph
Thank you Richard, Well played. It inspires me to try this. It is nice to see pieces originally for guitar written by good composers that might be appropriate for my level and that would give my captive audiences pleasure because I am able to concentrate more on the music and less on technical challenges. I am enjoying this Merz month a lot.…[Read more]
Thanks for sharing. These are lovely and will be great fun to play with my teacher. Good work and a big hello to the cat as well. The Bach minuet duet is especially charming.
Hi Ned, Good for you. I toyed with the idea of joining for nearly 11 months thinking I wasn’t advanced enough. I think you’ll find the program perfect for you needs and I liked what Roger said about nothing to fear here…….except some frightfully good guitarists!
Hi Dave, I feel a bit odd having been a drop in guest at the Wrap Up. That was my first time ever in a Zoom meeting in a group, got there too late, didn’t know the etiquette, and felt a bit odd being off screen the whole time changing strings and listening. That was not meant to be rude, I just didn’t know how to pipe up and say hey as a…[Read more]
Dear Members, as a Newbie I am still finding my way about the site. Would I be allowed to witness this evenings Member Challenge Live Wrap Up on Zoom in order to get a feel for things here? If so, how would I do that? Thank you.
