You nailed this one. The choice of tempo really brings out the poignant beauty of the piece. And you are getting me interested in playing without nails.. Wonderful sound. Thank you very much.

Thanks, Tate. Yes, it is. If truth be told, I was trying to record his Estudio en forma de Minuetto (or whatever it is called) but kept making stupid mistakes. It just wasn't happening. So, to calm myself down I started playing Marietta, and it came out beautifully first take, so I abandoned the minuet! Glad you like it!

Haha - yes that happens to me at times too. I think playing a piece over and over and failing helps make the very next piece you play somehow...easier or more fresh or something. Anyways - great sound!

Haunting indeed! :bravo:

Love the sound you make, Rob. :casque:

And the contrast in the middle section is amazing! :)

You "played" with the notes beautifully. :D
