I wanted to have a song to post at the new forum, but I didn't have a new song, so I posted an old one of mine.  I've lost a little weight since then, but I'm still plenty ugly. ;)

Wow, short but sweet!  I envy your finger picking skills; I've never been adept at that.  I've enjoyed you other videos, too.  Keep inspiring.

Lovely song, well played. The recording captures it perfectly. Do you play this kind of music live anywhere as you have a real talent for it?

Oops, sorry about that, lol.

I had St James Infirmary Blues open in one browser window on the old site and this open in another. Got my wires crossed. Nothing to do with this glass of wine I'm drinking at all. 😊

This is a great piece to combine with other of tarrega stuff to open a program.  This is when nerves can be their highest.  Like they say keep it simple..end the program with the hard stuff.  You zeroed in on the feeling of the song, your phrasing is excellent.

Really nice playing and sound. Can  you describe how you recorded this? Mic, placement, signal chain? Inquiring minds want to know!

I used a pair of Oktava MK 012 mics in a simple X pattern aimed at the neck-body joint. I just went through a cheap Behringer mixer and into my ancient Echo MIA sound card. The reverb was added at the mixer during recording using an old Alesis Microverb. I never use compression on nylon string guitars. They just don't benefit from it. I may have done some EQ'ing. If I did, it wasn't very much. These old Yamaha classical guitars from the 70's just record great no matter what mic you use. I read somewhere that James Burton, despite having tons of guitars, still uses an old 70's Yamaha steel string in the studio because it records so darn well. I can believe it.
