Thanks RicDavalos and Quadir. That was my fault. I'll record it again. Specially now that i'm on vacation.RicDavalos wrote: Leonardo, Quadir is correct. The Carcassi has three sections so it goes AABBCCAB. Your playing is very smooth. If you get a chance to rerecord it, I'd love to hear you finsh it.
Hi Irene_T. Thanks for the comments. I started to play when i was 16. Now i'm 37 but i've been stopped for a very long time(about 15 years). Now i'm trying to come back.Irene_T wrote: Hi Leonardo, good job with the Carcassi! You play very fast and accurately. Been playing for long?
Leonardo, your story sounds like mine. I'm 38 and playing since I was 15. I've stopped several times with the longest "current" break being 9 years and I've gotten back into it for the past 2 years. These classes have really helped my playing overall.Leonardo Silva wrote:Hi Irene_T. Thanks for the comments. I started to play when i was 16.

I don't know if i can post it here but i'd like to so i can have some comments from you. The valse from Sor is the hardest piece among all we have already studied specially because of the damping stuff. I'm posting here to encourage you to do the same.Jean-François Delcamp wrote: I recommend that you read these two pieces, very similar to the one we've just been studying:
- page 48 Fernando SOR (1778-1839) VALSE n°1 opus 51
- page 64 Mattéo CARCASSI (1792-1853) ALLEGRETTO opus 59
Thanks for the comments Julio. I agree that Carcassi's op 59 should be played slower but about the Sor valse, i have a version played by Jeffrey McFadden. I based mine in this one and its played faster than what i tried to do. The Sor exercise is also another piece that i should had slowed down.Julio_Cesar_CancunMx wrote:Nice work Leonardo!
looks like your´re really enjoying your vacation!! I think is a really good thing you can play fast. However, these are valse pieces and in my opinion we need to be careful not to play them too fast. I try to picture a couple dancing to my playing. Another hint would be to compare your time with Mr. Delcamp´s piece. It shouldn´t be a perfect match maybe, but somewhere close.
It´s also great that you were able to post the other optional pieces given by Mr. Delcamp
