I've really liked it (and the recording quality too :) ). I'm really astonished!12 weeks :shock: tooo short.

I thought this piece was by Mauro Giuliani - i may be mistaken.
I think you meant Giuliani's Op 50 , Study No 6 in Am, Allegro (The Butterfly).

Thanks again, everyone.

I needed the support, because when I played it for my teacher, he said "ok, pretty good... but now let's concentrate on bringing out the melody with rest strokes." So, it was back to Tai Chi speed and feeling like my first day! Especially challenging: freestroking with the thumb while simultaneously rest stroking with the ring finger! And then trying to increase the pressure with the the ring finger but keep the thumb soft.

But I was glad we got back to rest strokes. We covered those early on, but not so much lately.

LOL!!! You have a good teacher my friend! But those good ones are sometimes really hard to take aren't they? You are doing a fabulous job in your studies and your teacher will move this piece up a notch for you even if it kills you. Keep recording and sharing!

Oh BTW Steve it didn't seem like you used much finger nail on this piece?
