Week 3: Waltzes and Whirls
Welcome to the Main Thread for the third week of "Song and Dance" practice challenge!
Choose a piece that is inspired or transcribed from a song or a dance. It could be a lively south-american danza, a passionate tango, a serene romantic lied, or a poignant aria transcribed for the guitar. You're welcome to explore pieces from unfamiliar composers or challenge yourself with a complex work.
Commit to daily practice and share your journey with the community. Aim to practice every day and upload at least two videos each week to illustrate your progress. This will not only help you stay committed and encouraged but will also allow you to share your musical voyage with our tonebase family.
Share your favorite piece or recording that embodies the theme of "Song and Dance." Your submission will serve as an inspiration to others and create a vibrant pool of potential pieces for other members to delve into.

Here is my latest take on Minuet in A minor - Johan Krieger.
Since the last recording I was able to speed up a bit the tempo.
I also bought IRIG audio interface and used it to connect my guitar directly to the phone for the recording. This eliminates all the background noise including metronome.
I still need to play around with the adjustments of the fishman preamp on the guitar to improve the sound but this is a good start.
Mompou Canción 10A
This is, perhaps, my final on this piece. I've started working on the corresponding dance. I think this version came out pretty well. I keep having little memory glitches but they only registered as pauses - so not too bad. I also noticed my guitar is slightly out of tune - probably from all the takes I have done today.
