Bach, J. S. - BWV 1005 Allegro assai - Video

Listen, then read below! Hope you enjoy.

(Recorded with my 1999 Traphagen)












So, it's 6 months since I first posted a recording of this piece, and I'm still struggling with it. It's like whack-a-mole; every time I run through it, I correct what went wrong last time but a new mistake pops up. Trying to force myself to keep recording and posting and hope that progress is being made. Frustrating, though. :nerveux:

Oh well, certainly not the first time Bach has made a fool of me! Thanks for listening!

Amateurs practice until we get it right; professionals practice until they no longer get it wrong.

Very nice. I see inter alia the sound quality has been improved without getting too hi-midrangy compared to the previous recording (which is also great btw). Kudos!

very difficult piece but a good effort. dont understand why you make the mistakes? you have a fantastic technique - if i were you i would spend more time thinking through piece without the guitar. until you can play through mentally without hesitation an error is more thanlikely to occur. i didd play these, not very well, i used to listen to grumiaux whilst playing through mentally without the guitar...if that makes sense.
anywasys nice to a video without the edits....one of my big dislikes - video editing. :D

Ding ding ding ding ding. Yes, you're 100% correct. I spend very little time visualizing these days, and my ability to focus through a piece suffers as a result. So, everything I play has glitches, no matter how simple or how hard. Thanks for the reminder, the encouragement, and for your inspirational playing and videos! :okok:

Thanks much! Yes, always tweaking the mic placement, relative levels, etc. A fun and never-ending process! I find I struggle to keep the mid-ranges down on my Pace guitar when close mic'ing. Traphagens are a bit more balanced across the tonal range.
