That was incredable! It sounded like butterflies dancing on the strings. Thank you.
Music touches the heart, but playing classical guitar can lift your heart and enrich your life.

Thanks you all a lot for your motivating comments !!!

I liked especially the phrase :.....butterflies dancing on the strings....


But frankly speaking I 've been working to get the opening section possibly fluent - very legato played. It does not work each time but sometimes it goes quite good.

A very nice interpretation, but a bit poor quality of record. As for me, I like it more than the way Barrios plays his pemarkable work. I also have a recording by Nikita Boldyrev, it's in better quality, but your interpretation is more interesting. By the way, a lack of tonal balance isn't just because of the poor instrument. Another reason is a bad microphone (I suppose :oops: )

wow! That was great thanks for sharing that with us. This is one of my favourite Barrios pieces and am learning it myself at the moment. If if sounds anywhere near as good as your recording when I've finished then I'll be more than happy.
I've only just discovered the forum. What a brilliant resource.I can't believe how many great players like yourself are out there.

Your playing here is absolutely superb and it shows that a poor guitar can be made to sound good. Is it really that bad...?

However, a good workman never blames his tools and you certainly are a good workman here.

I thought the recording was perfectly ok too.

I am late in catching up with this, but I am glad I did!

Great stuff Mark, and thank you for sharing it with us.

Yeah, what guitar are you using, cause it sounds amazing!!

Amazing work, are you professional?

Stunned! Wonderful recording and no faults. The bad guitar? I certainly didn't hear one.

Thanks you all for your great feedback.

According to the guitar- here a link to the recording of another Barrios's Valse ( no.1 ) recorded with the same equipment ( mic and so on ) but with my own guitar.


So, the difrence is remarkable, I think.

Chris A, I studied guitar and I am also a guitarteacher now so that would mean I am profesionall. However, as a performer ... there are such a people like Russel, Desiderio, Assads and many many others... so, I am far, far away from calling myself professional as a player.

goodtone, you are right- there is more and more really profesionall stuff in this forum ( Materazzo is one of great examples ). It is really amazing.
