Carcassi, Matteo - op.59 Andante in A minor - D02

Post by mike_hudson » Sun Feb 05, 2006 12:09 am

Well - time to get my feet wet. Just finishing a review of my Grade 1 stuff after 30 years of not playing. Everyone should try to get an MP3 ready for upload - gives you a great appreciation of all those who have posted ! I didn't have a Mike so I duct taped my headset to the guitar and stuck the mic in the sound hole. Had to boost the bass a little - the mic is terrible - guess Im gonna have spring for a good one :oops: Mike

Way to go Mike... amazing first mp3, especially after a 30 year "gap."

You are already an asset to all of us, so thanks for posting this -- I enjoyed your playing. Power to the "old guys" if you know what I mean.

Wow! Very nice :casque: . Thanks from a fellow Virginian :merci: . And you're right, it would be great if everyone could get over their fear and do a posting. It really does give you an appreciation for how far advanced the Delcamp players are, but it also gives you and idea of how you're coming along. It'll be fun to listen to these in a few years. Sometimes slow and steady progress and you don't realize how far you've gone.

Hey Mike! :okok: Great guy!! thanks for joing in!! heh heh - that recording stuff is a PITB - no? just wait till you get in front of the webcam to make a vid of the playing!! I tried hanging an old headset mic inside the sound hole but the mic is old and pretty bad - it causes an even worse sound than I get with the webcam's builtin mic - go figure.

Anyway - I liked the playing - really moving along - and I liked the feeling which still came through (despite the mic) -- thanks!! :okok:

:applauso: :chitarrista: Ya, good one Mike,
What is the guitar you are using for the recording? Very mellow I thought, nice tone.

Russ :)

The sound would be fantastic if you can just get the slight buzz out. The piece was expertly played, and I look forward to your future posts.


Very nice Mike ..

The recording came out really well ... bright and clear... taped headphones and all! That's a very nice piece and you played it very well. :bravo:

Now that Your playing has been praised ad gloriae, I'm gonna be the bad guy and suggest a slower tempi until you feel a greater control over the piece. The most rewarding (in all meanings) way of practicing is study melody, melody, melody, and then some melody, and then some technique.
This way you're automagically keeping a more steady beat and natural phrasings, letting your hands get dictated while your head and heart is concerned with the music. Often we get wound up in making for the best technique while just concentrating on the music would do a great part of that job for us.

Even though Mike is not active any more .. at least under this account ...

I like this recording very much! :casque:
For me as a beginner it's so important to hear the recording of a piece so that one knows how it eventually should sound like.

This interpretation encouraged me to attack this piece by Carcassi.

Thank you!
Best wishes from magie!

Very nice Mike, from another Old Guy. I haven't posted yet as like you I am going through the lessons to catch up after 30+ years. You've inspired me. Thanks!
