Joining in late here, been travelling a lot on work. Lovely playing by Nels and Bruce as ever. Paul, I’ve been eyeing that 1007 too, and just realised you’ve posted it in its own thread. Well played without a score in front of you, well done! Hope there’s no rule against sharing a Bach curriculum piece already shared here? While I gain some time…[Read more]
Both pieces are sounding great, Robert. Liked the Aguado one specifically, it feels like you could play that in your sleep, something easy-looking there, hard to say it any other way ;) I heard something thin and phase-y now and then (in the technical, recording sense) in the Giuliani and was wondering if you used TWO mics to record that one,…[Read more]
Hi Janie. While Mark may have more to say on the key issues you raise, I can tell you the band mate’s is just Cousin. The Nigerian bank he works for doesn’t allow him to disclose his real name. Hey, thanks!;)

It is now merely a matter of proving it and the doc is now full on doing the paperwork, the very…[Read more]
Great and detailed report on your shenanigans, Bruce. Love to keep in touch. I liked the weird performance bit, since I got reminded of similar times many years ago, when I took my nylon guitar to general evenings with an assorted group (of certified non-Adelitans) and on gauging the mood and nature of the situation, I swiftly shifted allegiances…[Read more]

Lovely, intro could not be better. Looking forward to this month.
Your suggestions on memorisation and the use of a metronome are truly helpful. Thanks very much, Simon. And that grand room with close mics and room mics is such a luxurious set up. Great to see.
