  • 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 why get rid of Tarrega preludes? There are some more to go. And they are all such wonderful miniatures , so please continue Eric!

    • One thing you found easy: nothing
    • One thing you found difficult: it needs much practice time to bring up to speed - there are some parts feel to me as a brake .... ( bar 4 and 8 and all repetitions of them 🤪 )

    • One thing you found easy: 😂 🤣 😭 
    • One thing you found difficult: I practice tremolo for years and it is very hard to let it flow. After last virtual-Masterclass with Mircea I spend much much much time on practicing tremolo. The main thing I changed was the articulation : I always played P a m I  for years and now changed ( for most of the piece 😉 ) to p A m I ..... that was, I hope, the key to a better tremolo... If I let my fingers become too fast, I always fall back to P a m I . Because of that I need more time to reset the old articulation and let the "new" become my intuition version. For my feeling I need another 6 month time to speed up another 20bpm .... that would be my goal - a real killer tremolo 👹

       (If you put the Playback speed to 1.25 .....that would be my dream-tempo) 🥰

    • Olli To be honest, I like it better at the tempo you played. Putting it at 1.25 sounded too fast to me. I wish I could pull off tremolo like you!

      Eric Phillips Dear Eric, maybe 1.25 is sometimes way too fast - but I think when the beat is over or at least 150 BPM - that becomes a nice flow .....

      Olli Nice work on this difficult piece!!  It is so hard to play this well with even, legato, balanced flowing notes, dynamics and good tone ( and not hitting adjacent strings, ha ha).  Everything in both hands  have to work and coordinate perfectly to achieve it, and that's why it's so challenging.  You're doing a great job, so keep it up, and thanks for sharing it with us!

      Olli great tremolo Olli. I have actually gone through the same process with tremolo articulation as you and you’re right that pAmi makes it smoother. I warm up with pima too.  I practice it a bit every day although I’ve never tried Recuerdos. Not sure my left hand could pull it off as it’s a bit compromised.
