Here is my second attempt at the piece with the very long name.

Not as clean as I would like, but I think I have the awkward bit in bars 21 and 22 a little better now.

Very nice. And you managed to add variety to the repetitions, which makes it sound like a real concert piece. The melody flows so smoothly. There is logic in your performance and that is an entirely different level from merely struggling with the text. You really worked hard at it during all this time!

Thanks for the undeserved praise anyway. It gives me some confidence.

As for Lesson two, my only question is can this piece, Differencias, be played at all?

Thank you for your kind words Maria,

As far as Differencias is concerned, the first one is pretty straight forward, then they get progressively more impossible. I've a feeling I may have to listen to JF playing it a lot of times before it becomes clear, working on each section in turn. I think the main problem here is that it is music from a different era that is unfamiliar to us.

Good luck! :D

Beautiful music, and very nicely played, Dave.

Thank you for your comments Jeffrey, hope things are going well for you - good luck with the slightly more challenging pieces in lesson 2. :wink:

I have entries for Dave, Jeffery, and Maria thus far.
Hi, John.
Could you please add "Vaghe Belleze" to my qualifying entries? it's here viewtopic.php?f=41&t=106992&start=90, you must have missed it somehow. I am also uploading the exercises in my next post.

And the second question. Is it OK with my silent guitar and the recordings?
I added the link to your Vaghe Belleze in the exam tracker listing, thanks for the helpful reminder, I had not seen that post from September.
The silent guitar sounds OK, I can hear the notes played etc., but if you get a chance to acquire or rent a classical guitar there is some tone and timbre beauty that you will greatly enjoy.
