Pujol, M. D. - Palermo - duo

Post by Sean » Sun Aug 01, 2010 2:32 pm

Alright Aryeh, you asked for it! Better have some earplugs ready!

Sorry for the imbalance in guitar parts - and the reverb; I record in what amounts to a lifeless basement corner (the story of my life!).

The theme to Palermo was the last piece my mother heard me play, so this recording means a lot to me despite its many flaws.

This piece, your playing, and what it means to you has touched my heart. Your love for this music certainly trumps any flaws. Just lovely ...... thank you.

Beautiful, Sean. I didn't notice flaws (if there were any). :bravo:

Sean, this is a fine example of how there is more to a piece of music than just the notes. Your love for your mother, and your passion for and understanding of Senor Pujol's work, comes shining through.

Beautifully done. It looks like Sunday is becoming Pujol day.

Oh please, stop with with the self-deprecation! :wink:

This is an absolutely gorgeous piece, I really love the melody throughout. You play this really musically and with a good feel for the Argentinian rhythm(s). Nice overdubbing, very together like one person with four hands! :D Nice guitar tone too. Thanks for sharing! :merci:
:bravo:

Best,

Aryeh

P.S. Glad I got you to contribute some MD Pujol

I agree. This is really good; great timing and tone but most important of all, real passion and feel.
Loved it :casque:

Absolutely beautiful playing Sean - and very moving. :bravo:

You're a really good player - just far too modest! :)

Thanks for introducing me to some more of M D Pujol's work.
