Hi there,

I am finding some of your lessons very insperational, loving Spanish Romance & Gran Vals. I never thought i would have the skill and patience to tackle such pieces. I found once I start I cant stop hehe. Much to my girlfriends annoyance.
I find the first part of Spanish romance quite straight forward (ish) but the second part needs alot more practice and work.
Thing is it sounds fantastic when i get it right which in turn motivates me to keep going. SO a big thankyou for doing these lessons. As you can see I have been a member on here since the start member number is in the low figures. I have been away from the site for some time now due to family comitments but came back recently to find how much it has changed and for the better. I have a few electric guitars but love my acoustic and play it the most I just like the sound of an acoustic better i think.

Right I do have a little problem on Gran Vals. Its the pull off from bottom E on fret 4 to 2. (8th bar on tab) the pull off becomes a problem if I am trying to bar the second fret with my index finger so I can play the A sting and bottom E together. I end up muting the A string as I cant seem to bar the whole fret & pull off. Its slightly annoying and hopefully will be fixed by practicing. The only work round I have come up with is to not do the pull off, it sounds ok for now.Just need to get it right. Similarly in bar 26 top E 7th fret has to be played with my thumb as barring there with my wierd concave fingers always mutes the B string.

Hope this makes sense as its late at night here in England...

Either way just a thank you for these lessons as its given me a real interest in Classical guitar playing. :-)



I need more fingers!
