Very nice, very nice! The guitar sounds great and I love how you brought out the voices. The bass sounded fat and the trebles were bright. It was fun to listen to
Ciao bella! I lived a few years in Napoli (please don’t hold that against me! 😋) before I started playing classical guitar. I’m really excited to learn from you and hear an Italian influence on guitar. Welcome to the academy!
Another great interview Roger! I love that you’re keeping up with Simon and getting the inside edge on new things to come for the community.
Thank you Barbara for the insight into your journey! I’m just getting to the point where I have young children myself and I know that causes many people to put the guitar down, all of these stories are hel…[Read more]
Haha you made that look pretty easy! I loved all of the little musical devices you added in to all three pieces. You gave me some excellent motivation to get even more familiar with the music as I work with it and stop the mindless repetitions.
Thanks for the support everyone! I love our community and I’m sad I don’t have the time to give more back to it right now. But at least I can provide a cute video every now and again!
Scott and Barbara, I actually wrote a paper the other night with him passed out on my chest. Looks like I’ll be doing that most nights during my capst…[Read more]
Thank you Jusy, I’m hoping he felt those good vibrations!
Haha Kari, I’m hoping G3 happens in the second half of the year. I’ll be slow rolling for the next few years.
Donna, I heard that in your Rogcast interview. My first spent her first week in the nicu so were sadly well acquainted with that area. The nurses there were an absolute godse…[Read more]
She definitely has s lot of skills on her guitar! All of those bass lines in the Scarlatti piece were really well done. And she certainly has an interesting style! She’d fit in great at CGCA!
This is an amazing conversation to watch! I agree with Rick and his suggestion to only really work on finding a good EQ setting and a subtle reverb to add in that little extra. Beyond that I think mic placement will be the largest factor in all of this. Richard is right to point our all of the dynamics with picking an appropriate spot for your mic…[Read more]
My first thought when I heard Chinese folk music was “hell yes, time to rip off everything I can from Final Fantasy!” Yes I know that composer is Japanese, but that dude is stunningly talented.
Your composition sounded great as it is. I think you did well by that genre. If you wanted to flesh it out more you could use counterpoint and tho…[Read more]
I’d call that pretty damn successful right there! Go open a beer and celebrate. 🍻 I might be able to offer a few passing comments about minor details, but I don’t want to take anything away from the fact that just rocked out three quality pieces in one take.
If you keep attempting to play all three in one take then I’m sure it’ll get much ea…[Read more]
I was trying my best to hold my tongue on requesting you play some Sor on your new guitar, and then you come out with Op 44 No 12! It sounded wonderful to my ears and I loved the tempo you chose. I think I prefer that piece a touch slower rather than a touch faster. There are just so many spots for speeding up or really holding onto a moment. I…[Read more]
Great work Ian! That melody sounded very familiar and you really did give this piece the feel of a choir chanting. I don’t know the original, and I was going to say that I’d prefer a more legato line, but it sounds like that might not be appropriate for this one. I enjoyed listening to this one.
Between all of the new guitars, and Brian and Rick reviewing audio gear, there are going to be some happy online music companies! I had to put my phone down from looking up new Mocs just last night. 😇
Oh man you jumped right in and got down to business! I thoroughly enjoyed all of that. I wish I could offer something constructive but I think you could proudly submit this video and do very well in your feedback.
Haha Mark, I love it! In a few weeks our birth photographer is coming by to do some quality baby photos, I’ve already told her she needs to be looking on Pinterest to find good ideas for babies and guitars as her subjects!
