Here is another early dance piece by Abel Carlevaro entitled El Oriental - Malambo. This piece was written in the early 1960s under the pseudonym, J.A, Piendibene, who was a famous footballer (soccer player) in Uruguay. While this piece was never published in his lifetime, Carlevaro did record a version of it in the mid 1960s under the pseudonym, Vincente Vallegos. BTW, this is an amazing album (available on Youtube) in which Carlevaro plays folkloric music from the Rio de la Plata. The malambo is gaucho dance popular in the Rio de la Plata region. The title El Oriental (the Eastern) is derived from Uruguay's official name, República Oriental del Uruguay (Eastern Republic of Uruguay).

was experimenting playing tasto for a different tone. Its is actually much difficult than i thought playing in this position. I think largely succeed in getting the tone i want, there are still mistakes here and there especially in section B. But is close to getting how i like it to sound.
will try post an update if i have time.
