I think you two are looking at it the wrong way. The goal is to make the best way the easiest one by means of practicing :D

I think we both know that. We just concluded that it's never the easy way sounding better :D

Just to clarify one more time, we're free to add in a bit of our own artistic touch to the pieces right? Without simplifying difficult passages of course.

I suppose that's ok Stefan, if you feel like doing some ornamentation go ahead, I'll look forward to your playing.
What I could try at the moment is giving some coloration and echo effect as JDC explained in the Sor piece.

I'll look into that. Don't you just get bored of the same old monotone, mono-tempo, mono-articulation piece playing? Heck, if I were to play all these pieces like that I think I would've given up on CG altogether :war:

I'm not into Sor all that much. But this one is the kind of a piece you would play for your kids on a Christmas eve.

Good that the Sor piece didn't get more boring this time :)

How's your progress coming along Bea? I'd say these are some moderately challenging pieces. Not too challenging, but polishing up takes some time, at least in my case. Are you working on anything else apart from JFD lessons?

Hi Stefan, not ready to post yet, I will on the new year, I gotta party tomorrow night on new years's eve, food, drinking and dancing :D
I am only playing the pieces for this lessons for 15-30 min a day, it gets boring to play them for a longer period.
Every day I practise scales a bit. Then, I keep on doing the Sagreras lessons. I have been on lesson 65 for about 5 days, it is a hard one. Sagreras is entertaining but my left hand is not progressing much.
Today I started to study a method for left hand technique Abel Carlevaro, Serie Didactita para Guitarra, Cuaderno 3. Several people at the Spanish forum recommend this book, are you familiar with it? I did the first exercises, there were new to me, seem very helpful. You can find the book online if you are interested, I can give you the link.

I'm not familiar with it the book you mentioned, toss me a link in PM please. Although I do recall this one piece composed by Abel that I really liked, it's called Cancion. I've been trying to find sheet music for it but no success.
Here it is.

If you do manage to find it PLEASE send it over to me, I'd be very grateful.

edit: happy new year Bea!

It looks like everybody is preparing something really good, I guess pieces will be perfect since they are not hard and nobody has posted them yet. I haven't posted because I haven't had time to record the videos, it has been too noisy at home this week. Tomorrow I have a party so I might not be able to record either. I want to post before Monday though.

They're getting somewhat exhausting, to me anyway.

I don't know about you guys, but not getting notification of new posts in this forum really has led to a decline in the frequency with which I check the latest lesson thread. Out of sight, out of mind. Not much peace and quiet around here either ... both kids home, spouse off from work a good bit, some travel, etc., just gradually cutting down the mistakes. [mine won't be perfect, I can guarantee! But I can also guarantee that I like them well enough, and I'm glad to be playing guitar.]
