Welcome James!

Why can't I seem to find a lute teacher in the San Francisco area? :?

James Edwards: Habanera from " -Carmen" - on youtube

The musical animation either fascinates people or bores them; there doesn't seem to be an in between. Regardless, it seems to have educational potential. This is the first one Mr. Malinowski has done using classical guitar as the source, if you like it check out his other "animation" scores on youtube.

Sincerely,

James

Hi James,

I'm in the "fascinated" group. I can imagine music teachers using something like this to show youngsters how the pitch and duration of sounds combine to make music—I enjoyed your playing too,

Best wishes, V :) :merci:

Hello James,

It is a beautiful piece, very well played and the sound quality is also good. I'm in the "fascinated" group too, although I've seen it a lot in sequencing programs.

:merci: Bert

James,
When did you arrange and record that piece and what guitar are you playing? My guess is the Traphagen? You should record some piano/guitar duets with Stephen (that guy is prolific) next time he is in town. Great playing by the way!!
Your humble student,
Tim

One guitar played by one guy, no overdubbing of parts. The guitar is a 1994 Ignacio Rojas, with spruce top/indian rosewood back and sides. My arrangement was published by Mel Bay in a book called "Arias for Guitar", and is currently available. I did the arrangement in the early 90's. The recording engineer was John O'Connor, of Santa Barbara, California.

Sincerely,

James

It is PD, available in my Mel Bay book "Arias for Guitar"; or where I got it originally, in a publication of a Tarrega manuscript book by Ariel pub. from 1980. I should post it to my website, I'm not adept at that yet, but I'll try to get my webmaster to do it. I'll post a message on the forum when that happens. Thanks for your appreciation.

Sincerely,

James
