Father Bless. Very beautiful . I have the joy of being able to listen at work in my office... excellent recording too... i assume it is not in a recording booth. What are you using? In my youth i played Spanish guitar and advanced to Classical, but life got in the way, and i turned to Merle Travis style... my hero is Chet Atkins. There is a a great Tab site " Classical Guitar Tablature" that has printible tabs. I know, I know, not the textbook way, but i can really dig in and start with a tab ( as long as it is correct.) You'll be an internet sensation soon no doubt...

Haha! That is wonderful picking Father! Perhaps you can help us lead the way into getting the guitar into the Orthodox Church Smiley

Myself, I can't get into classical guitar playing, I am a jazz/blues improv player, I simply can't be confined by so much structure, I need the freedom to just jam

stay blessed,

Thank you norm1145!  The recording was done on a little digital hand-held recorder called the Tascam DR-07. The unit has some built-in effects but all I added was a bit of reverb. I am still getting used to the unit and hopefully I can continue to improve the recording quality from it.

In high school I was exclusively a rock guitarist and then really got into jazz but more specifically, fusion. Alan Holdsworth, Frank Gambale, Scott Henderson...that kinda stuff. Once in college I walked away from it altogether and then several years back just focused on classical. What I really enjoy and appreciate about classical guitar is that it is truly a solo instrument. So its perfect for late night playing when the family is asleep.

It really works well - amazingly well... I am working on bach's Cello Suite No.1 Prelude written for guitar... the tone and progression is going to be hard to master , but it is coming along nicely...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6yuR8efotI&feature=share. here is the Cello master... By the way, do you just set up your recorder on a music stand? i should google it...

I mess around with a little classical guitar sometimes. I'm more of a jazz player though, and love to play rock and metal stuff as well. I do also play cello, and happen to know that movement.
