Hi Summer,
After listening this piece for the twentieth time: it's really growing on me! I keep listening to it and love it more every time I hear it. This piece will forever be your piece. Keep playing it! Explore every nuance possible.
Love,
Erik

Thanks Erik! I had my first guitar lesson in over 4 years today and we went over that song. He has really opened my eyes to some great possibilities with it and I'm anxious to get started on it. He found a few spots where it should be re-fingered which will allow me to do some interesting effects. He also showed me where I could use rubato, tonal changes, some serious vibrato spots, and other goodies! I just hope I can remember them all until tomorrow. Giorgio! You're gonna get a surprise soon!

A very enchanting piece of music. I am sure it will be a real hit on this forum, both owing to the author and you, Summer.
Bravo!!!

I have been listening to this piece over and over again - it is so very sweet. You play it beautifully! I would really love a copy as well, if your friend is willing. Please let me know!

Thank you for starting my day off on a beautiful note!

Thank you so very much mozarteusz and matoyamni. It's always good to hear such such nice comments! Matoyamni - I'll check to see if the sheet music is available.

Thank-you all again! :D

As Giorgio Tortoro's music is going to have a boost in the near future, I thought: let's give this recording a boost as well! Italian guitarist and composer Giorgio Tortora has graciously offered 24 etudes for members of this forum to study and record. You will be hearing of it in a later stage. Summer's fine rendition of 'Dulcea and Sophia Song' will give you an idea about his work.

Thank you so much for bumping this up, Erik! I missed it the first time around. :oops:

What a beautiful piece! And beautifully played, Summer!

I love it the way it is, but do you plan to resubmit it since you've made some changes after your lesson? It would be interesting to hear the difference.

Thank you for sharing,

Alan

I don't know if I will resubmit it or not. I guess I could if I feel it's significantly better. I've started noodling around with it again so we'll see! And thank-you for the kind comment Tarbaby! :D
