Michael, great Carcassi Valse, beautiful tone, flowing, and I really like how you made the "B" section stand out from "A" section both in volume and texture!

Giuseppi, Fantastic! I am impressed by your talent.

Here are a couple of my attempts.

They are all still rough and need work. I almost don't want to post these but I'm afraid I won't get all the videos finished in time, so if I get a perfect video before the end of the week, I may upload another try.

Jack, I thought your last pieces were quite good, the Carcassi was flawless and at a good tempo, and on the Sick Tune I could hear the improvement in how you play the quick chord changes in tempo. The only thing I would say is on the Carcassi to maybe focus more on interpretation now, since you have it technically mastered.

Jack, your pieces are very good. I like very much "The sick tune". Unfortunately I couldn't study because I lost many time with Giuliani (not easy to play for me)... Your Carcassi is good from a technical point of view. A suggestion: you could try to play it by following the sugstions of the sheet: the first part could be done "piano", the second "forte" and so on. :bravo:
Here two last pieces by me: Giuliani and a 2nd (better than the 1st, I hope) version of the Andantino.

Claudio,
NIce job on Giulliani piece.You really are able to hit the upper notes smoothly and keep a good tempo throughout. Having worked on this one for a week now I know how hard that is, as is the Tarrega piece bar 15. I have been working on that a long time now and can sometimes keep a smooth tempo through this section. I have started mentally focusing on being light with my fingers, and not pushing down too heavily,as I seem to be able to hold my hand at the angle needed to get those two highest notes easier. I'm sure you already know, but that is your only weak point in that one, so I would suggest playing that part over about 450 times! :)
And thanks for your suggestions.
Good work.
Jack

Jack, thank you very much for your comments. Really I am not so happy of mine Giuliani. Probably I need more time for playing it well. It is a very nice piece and it is very challenging to play. Thus I am thinking not to leave it... Yes, you are right about Tarrega piece, I agree.

Jack, I am almost sure that you can play this piece well. Why don't you try to play, record and post it?

Eh Eh, Jack, thank you but unfortunately this is not my ONLY weak point. I have much more than one :chaud:. You're very kind. I am planning to follow your suggestion: playing that part over about 450 times :lol: :lol: :lol: !!!
Thank you again!!!
