This sounds a lot better than my last attempt. I got nervous near the end and flubbed one bar of it though. I took some of the previous criticism which I think made it sound alot better. Thanks for the advice, any more would be appreciated!

Great job!
I would like to hear more fire at certain parts but I think the way you played was very nice. And dont worry, its not as messy as when I play it :P.

A few tips
1) At 1:50, take a break! Its an end of a phrase so show that.
2) Use more slurs, it will make it alot easier on the right hand
3) More right hand movement (different textures). This can wait if your trying to get it technically perfect.
4) I personally prefer a thrashing loud ending to this piece. Going soft doesnt sound bad but I like to go out with a bang on this piece.

When I post this piece I better have some constructive comments from yourself :p

Excellent. I was mesmerized watching you play. Barrios has got to be one of the top composers for the guitar.

Well, I certainly didn't hear or see any mistakes. It flowed very smoothly and naturally. You also did a great job on the tech stuff, the picture and sound were terrific. You made it look really easy, and that is the most difficult thing of all. Super job!

Thanks for the messages! I am playing a Tamakine TC132SC electro-classical. I used my Macbook webcam and internal mic. I spent loads of money on a mic and M-Audio firewire box, and the internal mic on the Macbook sounds better! I used Quicktime pro to record the video.
Barrios is definitely an amazing composer, this piece is probably my favorite. Lots of work went into it!

Congratulations on this video! I know how much time this piece takes to prepare and you should be proud. The only advice I might have would be to relax a little bit. By relax I mean your right hand, body, and overall feel of the piece. That's what I have been working on lately so maybe it's just the only thing I can think of these days!
Anyway, very nice job. I enjoyed your performance very much and I thank you for the post.
