Rick, thank you for comment! I find it a little soft, I would like it to be more aggressive but don't what makes it sound soft and what to change.. Is it my playing, the strings, the recording?

Marko, thank you for comment, I think you wrote exactly what I was looking for (of course it is not the first time! :) )! I guess the answer to what I wrote to Rick is your post. I will follow your advice and make a new recording.

I agree, Marko's' suggestions are right on! I don't think in general it is too soft. But you could vary the dynamics a bit. I think you did do that in places but it may not have come across in the recording as much. The dynamics of the guitar are so limited. Sometimes we can trick the ear and enhance the dynamics by shading the tempo, by rubato. Those 16th notes in measures 25 and 29 that Marko refers to could be more punchy or louder, as well as waiting for that full quarter note, as Marko says.

But one thing I admire about your recordings: you get the notes right and tempo too. I have a hard time getting a piece down in one take all the way through perfectly like you do.

Hi Haris
Your Ejercicio was very nice. :bravo:
I'm working on this piece right now and it's quite hard.

Marko, your comment on Haris' recording is very useful. :merci:

Hi Duang, very good recordings with the exercises and the Valse. My suggestion for the Valse is the same thing I gotta improve which is to achieve fluency.
Haris I love the fluency in playing the chords and the Valse. I like this quote from Rick and not that it would apply to only one of us but to all of us,
Rick Beauregard wrote: The only thing I can suggest is adding a little more feeling in the Vals (and even Accords) now that you've mastered getting the dots right. As I heard Segovia say in 1981, "Rhythm should be like a road lined with trees, not telephone poles."
After watching all of us playing the Valse I go back and watch Delcamp playing the Valse and what a difference when he plays it, it sounds so beautiful, melodic, inspiring!

Actually that WAS the great Andres Segovia who said that.

Here is my interpretation of Ferrer's Ejercicio No.9, which I learned means exercise. Again, I didn't get all the notes right, and there are a couple unintended "rubato" moments as I scramble for fingering. Others are there on purpose. Thanks for listening! :guitare:

Rick, you are in the right way. I guess in 1-2 days it will be perfect!

Yes, I tried at the up tempo and couldn't get it perfect, so I went with the slower tempo. I'll keep this one in my repertoire though and keep working on it, because I like the piece. Thanks for listening Duang.

Thanks Bea. Its a lovely little piece. I sometimes like the once not assigned for recording better than the others.
