Fernando Sor Lessons Op 31 No 11

Posted as a reponse to Kevin Gallagher, because his lovely rendition got me fired up to record again. I have ignored the first repeat and inserted another in the first part of the second section. it seems interesting :-)

I don't know how this will appear because I haven't recorded for a while and have ended up with 320 x 210 pixel count. So, good luck. Additionally (grr!) I have to use the on-camera mike because my pickup is weak after a change of strings.

Matteo Carcassi Etudes Op 60 No 16

Posted as a response to Per-Olov. My Tecla edition states that the accompaniment should be staccato, so that's what I did.

I confess to a slight cheat: just after the first repeat, I edited out a bloop. You can see my fingers move when the notes don't :-)

Matteo Carcassi Etudes Op. 60 No. 3

I've been working on this for a week or so now and decided to post because I don't want to slide away from YouTube. I found myself worrying about getting it perfect, but there's no point in that, it's better to just get stuff out.

Fernando Sor Exercises Op 35 No. 22

This was my first post to YouTube. Apart from being astonished at how difficult it all is, I wasn't happy with the video (the light was too dim) and the sound quality (clipping on the mid tones) but as a first post it's OK.
