Giuliani opus 83, number 4 andantino con espressione - not very difficult, but hard to play beautifully like Lucio Matarazzo does it. . .

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.
:)
Well, by way of an update - I played this piece at the Christmas concert our lovely guitar teacher organises for us students. As someone new to performing, I am always beset by nerves, but it went okay - far from perfect (how do you stop your fingers from trembling?) but no major errors.

Right now I am learning Daria Semikina's arrangement of Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton.
It's not a classical music but I like her version of the song and I wanted to pick up some easy sheets to remind myself how to read music as I came back to CG last thursday. ;) Now I am working on articulation, expression..
I love this arrangement, I have just picked it up and am enjoying it.

I've thought about using this piece in an imagined performance debut. It's really a great piece and not too hard. but then I think that I'll have an attack of shaking fingers and....so bravo for taking it on!

Dear Scott
My fingers were shaking- it happens every time I play in front of an audience. Does anyone have any tips for overcoming nerves?
