    Here is my new recording of Un Dia de Noviembre. Like the Montemayor (my last shared video here), I did the same: pressing REC, taking seat, breathing, and then playing, without several takes or even having the opportunity of repeating phrases in mind. Just focusing on the music, and playing as good as I can in that specific moment, as relaxed as possible, letting the fingers do what they had learned to do. ;-) .
    During the past days, I practiced a bit here and there, not necessarily both pieces but parts of them and also some finger exercises (I am not able to practice more than 15 minutes at the moment; for years now due to some health issues with arms and shoulders). Difficulties are always at the same spots, but I try to see them not as problems or obstacles and I try not to get nervous when reaching those spots. I try to focus on my experience of playing them well and fluidly, as best as possible.
    Thanks for listening.

      joosje Opps. Maybe it is the frustration of not going to Spain.  (or auto spell correction).😉
