Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to listen and share your comments. I think the ornaments sound better on the recording than live when I play in my room. Maybe my webcam that I use for recording doesn´t pick up the string noise that I hear when I do the thrills. I am very pleased that you enjoyed it. I do love to play this little…[Read more]
I always enjoy your recordings, Bruce. You play beautifully and appear to be relaxed and really enjoying the moment. I read in one of your posts that you are interested in starting a thread on Wild Mountain Thyme – I just got the score and would very much like to join in on the project. Such a beautiful piece. As to the Prelude: I notice that you…[Read more]
Thanks for commenting, Julie and Scott. I agree, Scott, that some freedom is allowed in this prelude. It’s a prelude and from the French baroque and all. But I certainly hear that the phrases lack som forward motion here and there.
I think I might try to learn the whole suite, unless it proves to be too difficult technically. I have started on t…[Read more]
Thanks Michael, you have a good musical intuition. Your comments are very much appreciated. I think you are spot on regarding the first measures. I intentionally take a short breath between the first two short phrases, but after listening back now I see that it lacks a bit forward motion. The are also a couple of other spots where that happens.…[Read more]
I have started working on some of the grade 5 repertoire and first out is de Visee prelude from suite in d minor. I find the whole suite very beautiful and it would be great to learn a whole suite. While learning this piece I have been listening to many recordings, also of the Baroque guitar, and there are many and they vary a lot in…[Read more]
Thank you for sharing you concert, Rick! You play wonderfully. I was listening to it during a walk in the midnight sun in the Arctic Svalbard last night. CGC reaches out every where:)

Well done Mark, I enjoyed your performance of this piece!
I very much appreciate every comment. Thank you all.
Richard: Great that you are also working on this collection. The Debussy is very nice, and I guess it would pair well with the more rythmic Mangore, you should try them both. I also was a bit puzzled when I read that this collection is meant for children and beginners. I wonder if this was…[Read more]
thank you Richard, Kari, Julie, Derek and Bruce, for your inspirational comments. It is good to know that I look quite relaxed, that is not always the case!
Next up is Omaggio a Sor and Omaggio a Tarrega which I also hope to record soon. As to the comment about the recording quality, I use my webcam, no editing.
Hello fellow guitarists,
I am working on some of the Brouwer studies from the collection Nuevos Estudios Sencillos. This is study no 2 – Omaggio a Mangore. The tempo marking is Vivace and I try to bring it out with dynamics, accents, rythm etc as written in the score, but there are still work to be done. A very fun piece to work on. At first it…[Read more]
