My most recent video of Capricho Árabe. Performed on a guitar by Andreas Kirmse (2012).

Hi Rick,
excellent performance! As allways, I also love your Reis recording and the Weiss. :bravo:
Smooth and not to fast, as a lot of folks do it out there... Warm tone with some ritardandy, where they make sense. :casque:
As you see I am also an Andreas Kirmse fan. I met him in person this summer and had a very fruity day in Leipzig with him, taking my guitar from his workshop home to Hamburg. His guitars are incredible strong, deep and have a warm sound wile have their main focus on the base tone and not on the overtones. He recently moved the body shape to Simplicio! I am also following Sanel Redzic and in particular Tal Hurwitz. Both play a Kirmse, for Sanel it's his main instrument. Tal recently changed to a Daniel Friedrich. Do you have further plans? :guitare:
BTW: what strings do you use? I am playing d'addario exp 46 on it.
Looking foreward to your next recording.
Greeting from Hamburg :bye:

Very much like the calm and laid-back approach, lovely sound and the confident control. Very envious. Perhaps I missed a bit of drama.

Nice! I like the way you articulated some of the parts that get glossed over when folks play above their level.

Well done, Rick, and thanks for posting the video. It's always interesting to see which positions people play certain phrases in.
