Powell, Baden - Acalanto das nonas - Video

Here's one from Baden Powell. A bit mediocre playing, but I don't get as much practice as I want recently. Hope some will still enjoy watching and listening.

Very nice one. I love Baden Powell's music, perhaps I should try to play some ?
Thanks,

Hi Wolfgang,

I have not heard this one before—thank you very much, I have enjoyed hearing you play it,

Best wishes, V :D :merci:

:bravo: Wolfgang, you're too modest, I really enjoyed your playing. This is a new piece for me too, I can't believe that Baden Powell's music had escaped me for so long. The title means mumble mumble Lullaby.

Thanks Flamey :lol: I don't know why I'm drawn so much to lullabies. Maybe I should start thinking about breeding and trying the effect of all guitar lulabies I know on really interested subjects.

Wolfgang , you are a great musician: even it was not perfect, it sounds wonderful. :casque:
In your playing is allways such a tranquility ("Ruhe") I like very much.

And you have really great sounding guitars! What guitar are you playing in this video?

:bravo: :merci:

Thanks so much, Stefan! The guitar is my 1997 spruce Masaki Sakurai. The different sound is not only the guitars but my permanent experiments with changes in the way I record and post process.

I love the mood you create here Wolfgang, so gentle and, well, like a lullaby. I don't think the playing is mediocre at all.

Bravo!

Beautiful performance, Wolfgang.
I always enjoy watching you play, you just make it all look so easy.
This is a lovely piece and you played it so gently.
Thank you for giving us another opportunity to enjoy your music.

Because I'm always playing easy pieces. I can make difficult pieces look very, very difficult :lol:

That was a beautiful piece of music! :casque: I had never heard of Baden Powell before I joined the forum, either (at least as related to music).
:merci:

You have a great tone as a player, the guitar is nice and the recording is well done, but the sound comes from your fingers. A very beautifull piece well played.

Thanks both for listening and taking the time to comment.

What you do mean by that? Are you refering to a technical weakness in my playing or do you mean my sound should rather come from my heart? :shock: Sorry for the dumb question, but I really didn't understand what you are saying.

Best wishes
Wolfgang
