I've not had a chance to upload lately, and my practicing of the piece took a backseat once the school year started up (I'm an educator) and I got a little cut on my left hand index finger that required me to hold off playing while it healed. So, this recording probably doesn't show a ton of progression, but it still felt good to play it again.
I am just back from an 18 day vacation with my wife. I was able to practice everyday but the setting was not great for recording.
The piece I choose is from the book - 10 Brazilian folk tunes - Arranged by Isaias Savio.
I took the no 2 - Two Lullabies because it sounded very good.
Here is my recording. This is still a work in progress. I still need to increase the tempo, eliminate the buzz and get everything more fluid but with time I am sure this will sound much better.
I took the time to listen to all the recordings of the postings for the period I was on vacation and I can just congratulate all of you for the amazing work you did during this challenge.
