    A cool bay mist (classical guitar)

    I was trying to write a barcarolle for guitar, but it morphed into something else. It still has a 6/8 feel but it kind of took on a life of its own. Anyway, this uses Ilya Efimov guitar. I would appreciate a listen. Jay

    Hi Jay,


    First of all, I like the Efimov guitar a lot. It sounds so natural, so real...

    But that's not all. You wrote a very nice 'guitaristic' piece with the feel of a live performance. The plucking techniques (soft, aggressive, sweet, hard) they're all there, just like the rubato playing and the chord vibrato, even the damped attacks. The whole piece breathes like a live recording.

    Very well done, absolutely recommendable!

    To me, it has the feel of a real nice waltz, Mister Jay, and well done too.

    Fine work! Thanks for sharing.

    Best,

    You are amazing. From Gerswin-ish to Bach-Vivaldi flavored beautiful guitar piece..?
    Truly a nice piece, thanks

    Max! Thank you very much for the nice words. I have said before, but the Efimov library is the best out there for nylon string guitar. I try to get a realistic sound with the library.

    Larry! Thanks for the listen. The piece does still have waltz or 6/8 feel to it but I lost the barcarolle characteristic along the way. I am glad that you enjoyed it.

    Ted! I think that you are probably right about this piece having a mix of flavors to it. I thank you for the kind words.

    Thanks to you all for taking time to listen and comment. It is much appreciated. Jay

    With my face still nicely moistened by the cool bay mist I just walked through, I'm here to applaud you on your very pretty new piece, Jay, rendered nicely on your magical guitar.

    Thanks a bunch for the listen Randy! My wife said that the piece reminded her of mist on a lake so I went with that. It's always good to hear from you. Jay
