What you've posted here is just beautiful Olarte and I thank you and as you know, this piece strikes a special part in heart just now.
I normally don't do this but in your case I will because you have the piece under your fingers and I think you would a appreciate a comment that would make it a bit better..... well, in my opinion anyway.
When I play this piece, I want the bass to come through. What I missed in your interpretation was hearing the bass. Olarte, that's just how I play it.
My personal preferences aside,
Hans, thank you so much for your opinion. Along with praise I always welcome constructive criticism, and I absolutely agree with you about the bass notes.
Aside from the anxiety of recording, I'm also trying to develop a stronger bass. While I got the fingering down with the AMI fingers pretty well including playing with flesh & nails etc, I still have not found the sweet spot to play as strong with the flesh\nail of my thumb. So I either play bass notes too soft, or too loud enough to create a buzzing type of sound.
My thumbnail is longer than the other fingers yet, I still don't seem to have the right angle where it can make the same type of contact with the string as I can with ami.
Anyway, thanks again for your opinion. Posting here at Delcamp feels like I'm making my own little "world" debut. And I suppose I am, considering that Delcamp is such an international Community.
