Sor, Fernando - op.60/14 - D03

Post by Chadwell » Sat Jan 16, 2010 3:37 am

Hello,

Now that I finally got a decent piece of recording equipment, i can continue with my goal of learning and recording Sors opus 60 to better my nailess technique.
My nailess tone is slowly getting better I think, you can be the judge of my tone now; and as I post more. I'm using Sors technique on a parlor guitar strung with nylgut. :D

Good evening

Thanks Bentkey, and hopefull better as time goes on. Listening to it again, I flubbed a note, skipped one all together and played one that should have sustained from the previous bar. I had this memorized and hadn't looked at the sheet in awhile until tonight. Think I'll redo this one at A415.

Recording will only tell the truth.

Hello Chad,

Your nail-less approach sounds to be working well, and certainly suits the pieces of Sor. Very smooth.

Well done my friend
Paul :)

Thanks -nice - so good to hear these pieces played. Helps a lot.
I found this the other day and liked it. Some awkward stuff in it for me toward the end - but when the tune is as good as this one keeps at it !. I don't play with nails and do like slow stuff.

Very nice. is that study #14? I have the music for Opus 60, but I have only 12 Studies in all. I am trying to figure out which one you recorded.

" Listening to it again, I flubbed a note, skipped one all together and played one that should have sustained from the previous bar..."

I doubt that anyone who didn't play this (or certainly anyone who didn't play classical guitar) would have noticed. I don't think I did but I was reading your post while listening so something might have flashed by. Honestly I don't think that I'll ever be such a classical guitarist that a single minor flub will cause me to reject an otherwise fine recording.

Obviously, you've got the selection of op. 60 from the Icelandic Guitar School where the recorded piece is Study #3.
The full edition is here (linking to the Rischel-Birket-Smith Collection):

These studies bring back fond memories of long Sunday afternoons with my siblings and my Dad, listening to stereo LPs and practicing playing Sor.
