Bathing in Bach… out of Bruce’s Prelude and into Scott’s Allemande. Great playing as usual, Scott. Your fingers are moving as in a dream. Lovely to watch. Can’t wait to listen to the whole thing.
Lovely playing, Bruce! I love that piece and you play it with such joy and energy. Sound is also good. Reaper is a good, cheap DAW. Does whatever anything else does, it’s easy to use. It has very many instruction videos laid out in order by one of the finest recording/mixing engineers Kenny Gioia who is also a great, no-nonsense, show-and-tell…[Read more]
Hey, thanks Richard! In your wide ranging travels across the seas, you may have missed out on the cousins being dismissed for a far abler and cleverer musician and a very talented doctor from Cleveland.
I’ve noted your earlier mentions of Kageyama’s methods over the weeks and I’m glad to hear you are reaping some real benefits. And like Bruce says, you are truly making and keeping time commitments for guitar practice during lengthy travel periods. Laudable. Power to you!
It is so fantastic to hear your thoughts, Pat. From starting out thinking how I’ll manage to say anything of relevance to an international audience to ending it thinking why did I have to talk so much, it has now been fabulously disorienting to discover a lot of us ‘connecting’ in unexpected ways. That thing you say about those books is so true…[Read more]
A few hours ago, when I read Donna’s post at work, my mind was swirling with the same thoughts that Glenn has articulated. That’s a heck of a post, Donna and I was thinking I should remember it when my turn comes, as it inevitably will, for the spirit to droop. Since Glenn has basically said all I wanted to say, I will say just this:
A Major,…[Read more]
Thanks Deb and Steve.
Steve, you’re right about the headphones – if you’re doing audio duets or audio-cum-video duets/multi-parts with yourself. It’s impossible to do them otherwise. All my duets with myself (as videos) have me wearing headphones, although I ‘hide’ in the shadows so you can’t always clearly tell if I’m wearing them (but I am,…[Read more]
Hey Roger. I much agree with what Pat is saying (hey, hi, Pat!). I too love reading your diligent and periodic updates to your Journal where you tell all from that amazing multi-faceted musical life of yours. That Sor piece is not an easy one to play well at all but your fingers are getting into the groove, I can tell. The Kinkachoo is marvellous.…[Read more]
Hey Dave and Scott, when superb and skilled players like yourselves say these wonderful things, it is so heartening. Thanks so much. We hope to continue the spirit of innovation and fun.
Thanks Bruce, Thane, Julie, Jose and Bruce again.
Jose, my partner already plays like a beast on that imitation Hauser. Imagine if he had the real thing! My guitar is an Amalio Burguet Concert 1A.
Bruce, anything for you, my friend. MC2 and me have been experimenting with some audio settings and stuff, so if you want to get across something over…[Read more]
Thanks all for your quick responses. Now it’s a matter of me trying to keep up with the energetic skill set of Whammy Bar Hendrix the Doc, aka MC2. Something good should ensue.
Good show, Richard. Congratulations and welcome to the next level! And Dave hits it out of the park as usual by way of his detailed and extensive suggestions for improvement. Brouwer is always a good one to focus on. Cheers.
