Tamacun Rodrigo & Gabriela
Yea, brill aren't they?
You can't really play in that style using a plectrum. It sounds stilted, sorry.This is how it should be done-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFlnk50FXEY&feature=related
JD, I bow to your superior knowledge but still seems brill.I'll listen to your link a few times and see what happens. Thanks.
Now did and do I like the piece de Luca played more, however JD:(Even) When it sounds stilted to (for?) your ears/taste, saying You can't really play in that style using a plectrum. is plainly wrong. After all, they can, can't they? :)Reading this articleStan recently posted on Sentence First (plus the comments) you will know, at least get a glimpse of what I mean. :)
JD, I have listened to your link to Paco and the settled view of the Carr jury is this.If I were listening to solo guitar I'd prefer to listen to Paco - if Rodrigo plays in his plectrum style. Definitely. No doubt.But with Gabriela I think the plectrum gives the music focus. If G and R wer both to finger-play I think we might have a piece that was too loose.I hope this makes sense. I know what I mean. Thanks, JD, I think Paco may feature somewhere sometime.

It's unfair...It's been done to me by someone who was very dear at the time. It paralysed me.Calum, I'm enjoying this presentation very much. I love the youthful enthusiasm, the vibrancy, the energy, the dancing fingers. May they both keep loving their instrument, use it always with confidence, and get the clapping they deserve. I wish the same to the other Masters.
