Krieger, J. P. - Minuet

While this isn't the first song I have posted on Delcamp, I put this song in the "Our First MP3" forum because I think it is such a great tune for beginners. There is a version of this in the Delcamp PDFs but I think it sounds prettier played much slower than indicated. The recording is done with an Audio Technica AT2020 USB mic and Audacity. Thanks for listening!

Nice! I agree it's better slowed down a bit. Could you give a link to the sheet music for this? :merci:

Great performance!
You've done a really fine job on this piece, you have a nice clean tone and good command of your guitar.
I like it a bit slower, too. This is one of those that you can play with the phrasing a bit and give it more or less emotion.
Thank you for giving us this opportunity to hear you play.

:merci: I will give it a twist myself. Now the challenge would be to make it sound different than yours :) Hopefully I will manage within a week, before I take vacation from my guitar for another 3 weeks.

About 15-20 inches. The placement was in front of the 12th fret, maybe just a little below. The mic I am using has a warm sound, and placing it more in line with the soundhole produced too much bass for my taste. Thanks all for your kind comments and for listening.
