Carcassi, Matteo - Andantino Grazioso - 1/50 exercises

Post by Steve Kutzer » Sat Dec 31, 2005 10:30 pm

Well, I realize I pretty much have no business posting this. I started in September, so I don't even meet the guidelines for this section ("If you have been playing for 1, 2 or 3 years"), but one of my presents this year was a pocket recorder, and I found the exercise of trying to play a decent recorded version to be a good one.

So here it is. This is this week's assignment, and I've only been playing it for 2 days. OK, enough excuses!

Of course you do... you are a classical guitarist... it's just that most players don't feel confident enough to post after such a short time.

Congratulations Steve... very well done :okok:
Your teacher should be pleased with your efforts :bravo:
Let's have more from you.
:merci: for playing for us

Joy in the music

PS. What is the recorder? It sounded really good.
Never, ever give up!... I leave my songprint on your heart.

come on Steve !! that was terrific! I think you sell yourself short - and, as owl said - many folks here never post anything.

I always found the best way to improve was peer review and the give and take that naturally happend when several of us played the same piece and compared notes (ppardon). PLEASE post more when you're ready! This is one of the main reasons delcamp works so well for us all!!

Thanks for the feedback. The CG is so nice in that you can make music (or at least musical sounds) at an early stage and there's plenty of repetoire at all levels. I don't imagine any of us ever "running out".

As for the recording device, it is an M-Audio Microtrack. About the size of a pack of cards. You can attach good mikes to it, but I just used the included T-mic. It writes WAV files to compact flash, which you can upload to the PC any time you want. This might be a good device for someone who doesn't want to have to do a lot on the PC. I am looking forward to using it to record practice sessions and lessons.

Nice job Steve! I like the way you play it.

(I was listening through my headphones and it only seems to be recorded on the left channel... You might want to check your connections and/or how you save the file. )

Hey Steve ! thanks for keeping Virginia on the CG map :lol: and I really like what you're doing with the exercises - I have often wondered if it would be OK to post them and the concensus seems to be that it most definately is - keep'em coming man- they're very nice and for those of us working on the same stuff, it gives us a model to listen to. CU on the forum, Mike

Thanks Mike! And yes, I treat the "Your First MP3" section as our beginner's playground. I'll try to post the Segovia 3 I'm working on this sometime this long weekend.

You played this piece well Steve. And that's one mean pocket recorder you got for Christmas. It sounded pretty good. Keep them coming.
