Thanks Fingerboard, Piper and Pierre! I have to confess that I am a bit overwhelmed by all your positive comments which I did not expect at all. All your kindness makes me work harder and practice more to be able to provide my next recordings soon!!!

Thank you all!

Wolfgang

wow!, I love that C# instead of the D. Your guitar sounds amazing that low. I wonder if that's one of the reasons the tempo is slower though? I feel like I slow things down the more my strings go flat. Anyway, congratulations, it takes a lot of nerve to take the time you did between some of those phrases.

Wow I've never heard it played this way, but it sounds very nice. It's a really fun piece to learn.

Congratulations! Wollfang, you've done a great job in a very short time. I have to say your interpretation inspires me a lot. Thank you!

A late thank you to reidev275, Gus and ron4145!!!

@reidev275: When I hear it now again, I also feel that it is too slow. I think the time for an update has come :) The tuning is mostly a matter of string tension. I just love the Savarez Carbon strings, but for my taste (as a beginner) they are too hard to play cleanly when tuned to 440. And, yes, I also love the deeper, darker sound.

greetings

Wolfgang - That is one of the most beautiful, soulful interpretations of Julia Florida that I've heard.

Hey, I wish my guitar was that easy to play. Mine doesn't seem to want to cooperate! :lol: You are way too modest, my friend. Thanks for sharing and I can't wait to hear more.

thankyou Wolfgang, I know you made it some time ago now but I've just got around to listening. I really enjoyed your interpretation - very musical and a warm tone.

My dear Wolfgang,
You never cease to amaze me with your ability and the emotion that you are able to put into your playing.

Your playing this song makes my day.
I don't know how I could have missed finding this before now.
But, today I really needed it.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to hear you play. :P
Music touches the heart, but playing classical guitar can lift your heart and enrich your life.

Hello Wolfgang, this recording is very nice and I like enough to keep it on my desktop. You say that's it's an easy piece, but what piece by Barrios is actually easy?

Thanks
Paul

hi wolfgang,
the recording sounds nice, however, IMHO you should practice to speed it up a little bit, (really, only a little!) cause some notes sounds like they are "out of the melody" , cause of the too much space between them.... maybe i'm wrong.... :?
otherwise its really nice

*haha* Thanks all for listening and your PATIENCE :lol: Thanks V for digging it out

And also ayad, thanks for listening. But that's really from the dark days, I've only been playing for a year back then :mrgreen: So I can easily agree with your remarks! So now that you are officially part of the forum, introduced and everything, go check out the real virtuosos in the forum, maybe get started with owl, Denian Arcoleo, jounis, carysavage etc. etc. (this can only be incomplete) or get inspired by the creativity of our members in the "our own creations" section!!

Best wishes
Wolfgang
