Prelude BWV 998. As I don't Have a lot of free time it should make me busy a long time...
Good luck and have fun! That is such a beautiful piece that's definitely on my distant future to-do list.

Quando la guitarra baila by Fréderick Mesnier, bought from his website. A lively piece, enjoyable to play (and quite cool, according to my son...).
I did bought this “cool” piece way back (3 years ago, maybe) but have not the courage to start playing it. I’m afraid that it could be a tough piece to learn. What is your opinion – easy, medium, difficult? I have played guitar for 10 years, almost daily.

HI Archibal

I would say it is of (upper) medium difficulty. The (annoying) lack of fingering for the left hand in the score does not make it any easier so I had to check the tab version. But the main stumbling block is probably speed (and sometimes the rhythm). Just start very slowly, don't give up and you will get there. It really is a cool piece.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated. I will have it a go. The piece sure sounds like fun to play! I guess that the video will help with some fingering issues, I hope :roll:
