Here is a recording I just did of this piece, I know it is already posted here, but my version is a bit slower.
Hope you all enjoy!

You have a very good performance here!
I like it, even I prefer to play it a little faster.The sound is very good, but it seems sometime I cannot hear the bass presence.

Anyway great Jamie! I still expect to see one file for all 3 parts :).

Would you believe this is the first time I've heard this piece? Isn't that disgraceful?
Very enjoyable Jamie. The melody comes out very nicely. Thank you.

I've really enjoyed your lovely interpretation, congratulations¡¡¡

did you record this piece with a spruce guitar?

Well if others are playing it faster (it's marked lento) I don't know if the music is being well served by those faster tempos. Your tempo seems right to me giving the proper flow. Great stuff Jamie. I enjoyed it!

Yes it is very clear marked as LENTO, but i think it is only something about taste :).
I am shure Barrios wanted to be lento, but another face of this work is shown when it is played faster (just my opinion). Can be an experiment, just try it tomc and you will see...

great job

Yes, this was quite soulful with lovely tonal variation. Well done.

I loved the speed and sound of your interpretation. Maybe one day I will be able to play as well as you. Keep your beautiful interpretations coming.

wow, thanks guys for the replies! I was expecting some negative replies actually, listening to it after listening to john williams version, i realised i played it a little bit too straight with the tempo. Anyone trying to learn this piece shold listen to JW's version.
I actually am playing this on a cedar top guitar that is double backed with spanish walnut and i think cedar. The melody came out really nice especially when i added a bit of reverb using cool edit. Its amazing how much a bit of reverb can improve things!
The guitar i recorded it with is lacking bass tone, but my spruce guitar is just so hard to play!
