  • Dear Community,

    now we already have week three and just now comes my first post. I just don't have that much time at the moment - you will probably feel the same way ...
    But maybe this week it will be better. Unfortunately I didn't have time to practice completely new songs. Now it starts with "Lagrima".
    I wish you a nice week ! best regards

    • Olli Great to hear from you, Olli! That was beautiful! Such wonderful contrasts. (Is that a pepperoni pizza to your right?)

      Olli Thanks a lot for the video!!! I am currently working on Lagrima, and hearing the dynamics you put on the rhythm and the sound is amazing... it really helped me to understand the piece better. Great performance!

      Olli great submission, Olli! You set a beautiful tone and contrast the two sections beautifully!

      (and every videorecording gets better with a beautiful ribbon mic in hehe front, hehe)

      Olli You were really on recording run! Good job!  Especially with that darn b major 7, I was always struggling with that one!

  • Some guy named Francisco keeps popping up all over my house with these short little preludes. Any idea how I can get rid of him?

    • Eric Phillips Dear Eric, why do you need to do something against it ?

      Prelude is fine.

      My husband hates tremolo - that makes she nervous. I am not allowed to play tremolo when she is around 😂.

      So, perhaps you are a lucky boy playing in different places. 😉🎸🎶🎶🎶
