Hello again

Just wanted to share this recording.

It's still a bit of a work-in-progress, so I'd be interested in any feedback.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Lucy!

Say, I realize that a word of encouragement coming from a newbie to this forum doesn't carry the same clout as those you've gotten to build a rapport with but nevertheless ....

I listened to your recording and thought you sounded awesome!! I really look forward to hearing more & interacting with aspiring Classical Guitarist's like yourself.

Kindest Regards,

Scott

Always a pleasure to hear you play, Lucy. I think you have it about right...perhaps bring out the bass a little more. I think you and I are on the same page when it comes to tremolo...a well articulated, perhaps slower triplet is more effective than a quickly played, but uneven triplet.
Thanks for sharing your progress with us. :)

Yes, but it's also my view that some very quick and even tremolos can spoil the magical sound world that the tremolo is supposed to create.

I heard Recuerdos de la Alhambra played in a concert recently and was spell-bound. The performer, Fiona Harrison, played the tremolo a bit slower than many players, and of course it was very even too, but as far as I could see the real "trick" was in her delicate articulation. Unfortunately, there are no examples online to show you this though. :(
