Okay, I declare it a tie !

In trying to decide which of you is the most gifted musician, you or Tortora. It is definitely a tie!
Tortora, for writing such an inspiring piece and you for playing with so much inspiration and gentleness.
I thank both of you for this making it possible to hear you play for us. You have no idea how much I truly enjoyed listening to to you play
:merci:

Summer,
I don't know whether it is the technical knowledge of CG gleaned from threads or the opportunity to hear something as nice as what you recorded with a 'new' song to learn that creates my addiction to Delcamp.
THANK YOU

Evelyn

Thanks everyone for all the kind, positive responses to my first mp3. I really do appreciate it. :merci: However, my ego is running up and down the streets right now hollering, "THEY LIKE IT!!! THEY LIKE IT!!!" (How obnoxious! :oops: )

I just happened to see a reference to this recording in another post -- but it took me a while to find it!

Summer, I know the name of this area is misleading, and this is indeed your "first MP3." But -- I believe this section is more for beginners and those who have only been playing a short period of time. It's clear from your performance -- that doesn't apply to you! :shock:

Truly a lovely piece, beautifully performed. I will keep an eye out for any more of your recordings.

I also intend to keep an eye out for Mr. Tortora's printed guitar music (I found him on a few Italian websites but haven't checked the US distributors.)

Anyway, MODs, what do you think? Shouldn't this be moved to the main "Our Interpretations" area? It should get even more attention over there...

Yes, you are right Chris. I realize that now and I have been playing for longer than 3 years. So, I'm fine with it getting moved to a better place. I will PM a moderator and ask them to move this thread to a more appropriate location. Thanks for bringing this to my attention! :)

Summer... most first timers do post here... and it is OK to do that
However I think you belong in the 'Play pen' too... you really are too good to languish over here :roll:

This is the sort of languish that I meant! :mouton:

Owl - your definition is gosh-darn depressing! After reading them I fear I can never use "languish" again as before! This won't do! I must change it! I think I feel a "languish" episode coming on.........oh dearie me! Hep me before I fall! :P Wait, here....hold my mint julep for me first......o.k.......THUMP! :P :P

PS. Maybe you mean 'languid'

With their strength, grace, and endurance, [they] move about naturally, freely, at a tempo determined by climate and tradition, somewhat languid, unhurried, knowing one can never achieve everything in life anyway, and besides, if one did, what would be left over for others?
