  • Yradier's La Paloma (arr. Tarrega)

    This one is a bit of a standard in the repertoire I think. Playing it, you would think it was written for the guitar. Sorry my intonation is not too good.

    • Eric Phillips Beautiful Eric….thank you for the score

    • Eric Phillips Oh La Paloma! Good job, one of my student just bought an arrangement for guitar trio and voice. A little bit easier.  But it's such a nice piece.

    • @Blaise Laflamme  Thanks Blaise. I do like his transcriptions, but I'm playing a lot of them mostly because he did so many, and they are easy to find and free!

  • I had a bit of a break as I traveled to Florida for a couple days so I have not played since last Tuesday…but I am back and still working on the Gershwin as well as a couple other transcriptions.  I hope to post another video tomorrow.  I was also unable to attend the Dress Rehearsal but look forward to the community Concert in another week or so.

  • Lob der Tränen week 3. I need to memorize it now. It is a recording from Sunday night, my internet was too slow for uploading it. I printed a few more songs to work on, but I don't think I will record them this week, we will see.

    • Hélène Beaulieu That was excellent, Helene! What a special performance. I particularly enjoyed the first half. Your dynamics and rubato made it so expressive. Well done!

    • Hélène Beaulieu absolutely love this. Wonderful, Helene! I see that your camera also can’t follow your sound. I have that as well. Great submission.

    • joosje Thank you. Yes I suspect that this is because I recorded with my MacBook built-in camera and that the computer went on sleep mode while I was recording? That, or maybe just a lack of light source. I watched Martin workshop yesterday, I will try to apply some of those principles. (I filmed before the workshop)

    • Hélène Beaulieu Very Nice!  It is great to hear you playing on an early instrument.  I may have missed an earlier post if you spoke of your instrument, but am I correct that you are playing a replica or an early romantic guitar?  It sounds great!
