Hi Jeff,
looks and sounds great at 720p!
Is it natural reverb?
The music seems to unfold effortlessly, great playing!

Thanks, smahood, Classitar, and Grant. Yep, totally dry recording, no effects. I guess that's water closet reverb. :)

Something happened in either the camera/computer transfer or the upload to youtube, because the audio's off a hair. I'm going to try and fix it and repost it.

A lovely performance of this piece. :bravo:
You seem so relaxed in front of the camera and you also appear to play with so little effort.
Wish I could do that! :mrgreen:

Beautiful performance, Jeff.
This is a lovely Renaissance piece that brings to my mind 2 young maidens dancing together about the parlor as you play this piece for them. They are so delighted as they hold their skirts, dancing on their toes to the rhythm of the music.
Thank you for giving us this gift of your music, I really enjoyed watching you play.
:merci:

Hi!

Thanks for the video! It's marvelous!

But I wonder why is the bass a bit... thin? It's a bit sharp and doesn't sound rich to me. May i know why?

Thanks a lot!

With regards,
Di hang

Thanks, Vesuvio,Santhell, lucy, Kay, Di hang and Albert! Di hang, I would assume the capo 2nd fret had that effect on the basses.
