      Stefanie Mosburger-Dalz NIce Stefanie. I've just bought the music for this and the Cancion de Cuna - not tried it yet but I will do!

    • Derek Thank you. I love that music, love other peaces of Brower too, for example dia de novembre or danza charakteristika or the estudios sencillios. But I have to work a lot on it. I wish you joy with that- he knows a lot about the behaviour of the guitar

      Stefanie Mosburger-Dalz This is beautiful as well, Stefanie. I just realized they are in the Eschig edition of Brouwer's Guitar Works (which I recently acquired). This is a good collection of his works.

  • I started to work on these peaces in December and it still is clumsy but I try to improve during the challenge. I made these movies on saturday and I was disturbed by the camera, I hope it is getting better  while repeating the procedere. It is a lot of work and love in it...

  • I have a short pinky, so I had to find a way to do the B in bar6....

    • Stefanie Mosburger-Dalz you're right, the extension is not easy to do there. You can use alternate fingerings like an open B and the D on the third string or eventually a finger extender 😄

    • Blaise Laflamme yes, I take the b and d with 3 and 4, I could try out to take 1and 2 and take the a on 2.string

  • Dilermando Reis - Uma Valse e Dois Amores

    This is a fun piece. The title means "A Waltz and Two Loves" and I take that to mean that there are two "voices" carrying an alternating melody, one high and one low. I'm not sure if I pulled that off, but that's what I was trying to do.

    I think this one might need a bit more work, as there are still several trouble spots. I got through it, though.

      Eric Phillips You play this beautifully, Eric. It kind of reminds of early twentieth Century american popular music. (No I wasn't around then- just heard recordings).

    • Jack Stewart Thanks, Jack. I can hear that similarity too. The many secondary dominant chords definitely give it that feel. Also, the chromatically descending dominant chords at 0:40 sound like popular music as well.

      Eric Phillips Both this one and the "Nostalgia Op 19 No 3" were so beautiful! Latin American music sounds so romantic and is always a pleasure to listen to.

      Eric Phillips Are you sure you haven't been born in Brasil? It's sounding great, man, you're a "seresteiro" (serenader) by birth! Thank you for sharing!

    • Moyses Lopes Close. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA). This city is not exactly known for its great seresteiros! More like steel workers and American football players.
