Beautiful Rick, thank you. Congratulations, too, on your success with technology and using that page turner :)
It must have been chilly indeed but I like your concert dress with the wool scarf!
The suction cups on the GuitarLift haven’t come off once. And if one should, there are 3 more holding on so I don’t think it would be a problem. The one drawback to this support might be its size. But I am going to purchase one for use at home.
Thank you. I usually leave out the last repeats of the A and B sections unless I need extra time. That would be for example when I play this in the silver mine as a background to my husband telling a story. Then I need the music to last until the the end of his story and that requires those extra repeats.
Yes, tuning down to 415 is…[Read more]
Thank you to all for listening and for your comments.
I am grateful to have had the chance to try the GuitarLift. I think I will buy one for myself, the medium plate. Bruce – I once tried a cushion, the Dynarette cushion, but didn’t like it very well. It seems too wobbly somehow for me. Good though if a cushion works for you.
Here a short update as to my student’s wedding – all went well. Of course, they were a lovely couple and appreciated my music but also many guests afterwards said the same. I was to play as the bride came in and after the ceremony. There was some waiting time, however, while the guests were seating and the bride had not yet arrived to the Town…[Read more]
Lovely Drew! The little guitar is beautiful, too.
Do you remember the guitar I bought from Rob MacKillop? I recorded 3 Tárrega pieces with it for the Composer of the Month thread yesterday. It’s fun to have different instruments to play. Each has its own unique sound and feel.
Whoever might recognize the new guitar support “GuitarLift” – yes, that is new for me. Beat Pfluger, a CGC member from Switzerland, was kind enough to let me borrow his to try it out for a few weeks. Since I cannot use my Sageworks supprt here (I have no magnets mounted in the Ambridge guitar), I have been using the GuitarLift and like it very much indeed.
With these wonderful presentations of Tárrega’s work, I wondered how can I add something unique? My favorite Tárrega repertoire includes Lágrima, Adelita and Recuerdos de l’Alhambra. I am still very much at the learning stages with the Prelude Scott played for us.
I thought to string my three pieces together to a mini concert of about 8 mi…[Read more]
Bravo Mark! Wonderfully played – both musically and technically…and you say something about “it was time to bring the general musicality level down a bit to encourage others to participate”…what nonsense ;) of course many should participate but your level is pretty high!
Thanks for listening to my speed challenge video. If Scott and I are right in thinking we need to be playing this scale at 80 bpm for our Grade 7 submission, then I’ve still got some work to do :)
Thank you. Yes, someone has said that before about my metronome being so loud. It’s an old fashion wind-up kind. Maybe I should try putting it behind the camera/mic.
For the Grade 7 submission, I thought we had to play the scale with 16th notes on the beat at 80. That is what I’m working towards. Perhaps Dave or Niki can clarify for…[Read more]

Here is a video of my Giuliani for Sunday:
Thank you to Niki for her practice suggestions. I am trying that with the metronome but find it not easy to accent against the beat of the metrome, but I will keep at it.
Here is my latest progress video (although I think I’m a day late)
I have actually reached my goal, playing again at 66 bpm as in the status video but now with four 16th notes…[Read more]
