Rick and Marko
Rick, I enjoyed listening to both your recordings; Both looked relaxed performances compared to mine, perhaps more so for the first, non-capo version. That might be why I preferred it. I liked the look of your alternate fingerings in the last difference, I should probably look at trying those.
Marko, I wasn't sure about the reverb on the Tarrega. It's a piece where the lower strings tend to resonate at times, and I found I was a bit more conscious of that because of the reverb. If you used any in the differences
then it was very subtle - it sounded great whatever! On the Tarrega 3030 trill (bar 10 for example) I thought you were playing it differently to M. Delcamp and was going to ask why. [Perhaps hoping for once, I could point something useful out!] Needless to say, after checking, I realised I had been playing it differently, perhaps wrongly!
I think 'tired' is about right. The frustration of recording what seemed my best versions, only to hear them sound distorted and 'phased' was very disheartening. You are right about the discussions around lowering the action. Thanks for the idea about the strings though, I will try that first. I have gone from D'addario hard to normal tension, but other than that have not tried any other strings.
Spot on about my first two differences, listening to your version and Rick's emphasised that.
