Ubik, that was a super performance. The thing about playing a normally fast piece slowly, is that there's no place to run, no place to hide. Every note has to be articulated cleanly, held for its proper duration, meaningfully expressed, rhythm maintained etc. So it's great to hear alternative successful versions of pieces which are played at a different tempo.

Much appreciated,
Moo.

I'm glad this recording has surfaced again, I didn't hear it when it was first posted. I think it's an excellent recording of the piece - very clean technique and a tonal palette that is quite reminiscent of the original instrument. Thank you very much :D

Very nicely done!

This is one of my favorite songs for the guitar - and also one that I have never worked up the nerve to try, until now. I only hope to do it half as much justice as you have done with your lucid and sensitive interpretation.

Many thanks,

Dave

I'm glad this was bumped up, Ubik, as I missed it first time round, and it's one of my favourite pieces. I very much enjoyed your playing and can't find anything to criticize. Well done and thank you!

I'm always surprised and very pleased when one of these surfaces; thanks to those who took the time to share your thoughts, and anyone else who just listened. :merci:

Ubik that was great! I finally got to hear you play and you are awesome! I've always loved that piece and started to learn it about two years ago but for some reason I got side-tracked. Now thanks to you I must finish it. You sounded really good, clear and precise and with such a good tone too. Thank-you!

You're right Summer aka Remmus... he did an awesome bit of playing. I love this piece and play it almost every day. Ubiktheschumk has also invited me to post my effort but after listening to him play it again, I'll pass aka I need to practice it more. :chaud:

Hans

PS Ubik, quite honestly, from someone who plays this piece and knows where the difficulties lie, you really did post an awesome performance ie I have absolutely no criticisms or suggestions on how to improve what you've played.

I've just started to revisit this piece. Very challenging. Unfortunately I don't have the posts up yet to listen :(

Amazing interpretation Ubik! :merci:

I think this is exactly how this piece is supposed to be played. :casque:

I think the mp3 recording has some glitch that did not allow you to have full justice on your interpretation BTW!
Abraços,
Maurizio
