Owl: :merci: :flowers:

I really do love this piece. I warm up with it slowly, then later on, I play it at about 2-3X tempo. What a workout. It really forces me to concentrate on the clarity of my playing :shock: , besides, it's just plain fun. I've slowly been working on the other 5 Caprices, but Giuliani's Melancholy currently has me in it's thrall :twisted: I think that that will be the next one.....

And really.........that was not one of my best recordings, all the others just had me screwing up near the end :nerveux: :grire:

I think you payed this very well. I have not heard this piece before actually, it sounds very nice. Take this from a dentist, grinding your teeth is bad! Try and keep your teeth apart if you can. :okok:
Great playing!

Keep em coming!

Hi APribilski,
thanks for sharing this instructional etude with us. You played it very nice.
it is one of those etudes that alows you to change the colors. it can be played with different tempos, slow tempo as a warm up and fast as a nice piece of music. the only suggestion is to play the bass lines stronger, it will make a difference.
hope to hear from you more and take care of those teeth!
Happy Guitar

So is this one: I can hear an odd sound... like a teeth grinding sound...

Just kidding :D It's good from A to Z, just plain nice music! :merci:

:merci: to everyone :flowers:

Owl..........I'm paitiently waiting for more mp3's from you....... :D

PS: I usually chew a piece of plastic stir-stick if I feel myself clenching my teeth too hard. I should know better, I'm going into that industry.

sweet al, nice playing! that piece sounds like total fun, i'm gonna have to grab me a copy of the notes.

It is sweet! You can just have fun with the tempos. It helps if you memorise it, makes it even more hellish :twisted:

very good done; clear and soft. I enjoyed the listeing, however.. I do not like Carcassi's music ;) .

Thanks for playing.

I thought you did a wonderful job on this one. It didn't sound stressed or strained in the least bit. Nice, even tempo too.

Hi Alana ~ looks like this post is over a year after you performed it and it's still giving great pleasure to us newbies who are hearing it for the first time !! So well done and it now lives in my computer in a special folder for pieces I have really enjoyed - Cheers, Mike
