Tárrega, Francisco - Pavana, en mi mayor - D07

Recorded yesterday. Needs a lot more practice. I learned this piece just recently. My fingers will never be the same like before.

Hello Tom,

I can see you're a man who enjoys a challenge! This is a very tough piece to play effectively and I think you did a pretty good job—well done!

I have two versions of this that I really adore, David Russell plays it beautifully and so does José Miguel Moreno. If you get the chance to hear those, I am sure you will enjoy them,

All the best, V :) :merci:

Well done, Tom,
I really enjoyed listening to you play. I noticed that you play much of Tarrega's music. Great choice!
Thank you for recording this for us and giving us this opportunity to listen to you play.

Music touches the heart, but playing classical guitar can lift your heart and enrich your life.

Hi Tom,

As it happens, I was just looking at the score of this piece this morning, picking out the notes and wondering how long it would be before I dared to attempt it. A long time yet, I decided! Your playing of it is very nice indeed. I especially like the tone and the assuredness of the slides and ornaments. If you say this needs a lot more practice, it is going to be absolutely fantastic when you think it's ready!

I really enjoyed your interpretation of this, TomServo!

Yes, it is hard on the fingers! It demands a level of strength and dexterity I wasn't prepared for when I launched into learning it. But mine will never be the same either.

I like your style, TS, and thanks for posting it; I really like to hear others' interpretations.

Thank you. It was a good training for the fingers and showed me how helpful checking out other recordings can be. I just read >this text< and remembered how I tried to learn this piece just from score (never ever heard it) and gave up.

In the meantime I heard a David Russel recording (thanks Vesuvio) and was much surprised in what he can do with it. Did not heard Moreno yet.

Thank you all for the comments. My recording sounds better to me after some time has passed. It seems that I even did play at the same overall tempo like David Russel without knowing. Just 6 seconds difference.

David Russell was a new name to me and I think will become a favourite. My fascination with this piece came from Andy Lee`s youtube recording .It`s played on a tiny 1/4 size Cordoba . Musically it`s outstanding and so is the little guitar .

Very nice! Not an easy piece and you've given it some spirit. It's enjoyable music and not just a plod through the notes. An odd recording though. I hear lots of glitches and they can't all be clumsy edits.
