Meanwhile, here's Torrisi playing his own arrangement...
(see earlier post)

I enjoyed this. Seems faithful to Santana's version. Only thing that's missing is the flurry of bongos and/or congas intermittently. Maybe Torrisi needs to add a few golpe-style additions to his piece 8) :wink:

Or would we ask Torrisi for permission since it's his arrangement?
It might be a while before I've mastered this enough to record. :)

Actually, I replied to your post quite quickly and was wondering afterward who wrote Oye Coma Va. I thought you were going to say we'd need a different author's permission. But yes, I missed the 'arrangement' part of your post. But I've always wondered if and how arrangers get permission from the original authors of a piece. The answer's probably in one of the delcamp FAQs.
But the arrangers must need to get permission too, musn't they?
Yes and assuming they did, then my guess is we'd need the arrangers permission.
Wouldn't you need the permissions of both the original author AND the arranger?

Sounds like you are correct, I emailed Mr Torrisi and his response was

"unfortunately in the Delcamp Forum they are very strict about copyright ...
My permission is insufficient because the real authorization should come from the author of the song ... if you do not have that permission you can not publish your video in that forum. You can instead publish it on YouTube."

At the moment I am working on evocacion (Jose Luis Merlin). It is lovely, melancholy, haunting - but (for me) quite tricky in the second section. Slowly, slowly I am persuading my fingers to do my bidding.

still working on BWV 1009, Gigue. What a lovely and lively piece. Not easy, but practicing in sections helps a lot. After having repeated the tricky passages over and over again I am about to put everything together.

I'm learning Carcassi op. 60 no. 19. I like the piece, it has a beautiful melody line.

I stumbled upon the nocturne op.19 by Regondi and decided to give it a go. When researching this guitarist I discovered that matanya orphee published 10 etudes by Regondi. They just came in and I absolutely love them. Well the first 5 anyways, that’s all I had time for today.

Have a nice day!

Berg-Rhapsody by Konstantin Vassiliev. It's based on Berg's Piano Sonata and directly quotes it at times, but it's not a literal transcription. It's quite beautiful but very challenging. He wrote it for Carlo Marchione. There's a YT video, but it's too new to post directly.

This is a perfect example of how this message board is going to be the death of me - there's already so much that I want to learn and then hearing this instantly becomes added.

I couldn't agree more. What a beautiful piece. Well I just need to live to 500 to be able to play all these pieces...
