    I really enjoyed Spanish Romance. I’m not happy with my video but I really want to get on to the newer lessons.

    @mark1256 – IDK, Mark. That smile at the end says otherwise. I think you aced the rubato feel on the second A Melody. That’s one of the big hallmarks of this piece and your performance had a very natural feel and flow. Well done!

    Hi Everyone,

    Quick question about Spanish Romance. Im going to try to work it up enough to record it but it is very challenging so we’ll see:)

    I watched both videos but didn’t see how to do the harmonics at the end. Is there a tutorial for that?

    Thanks!

    Joel, check out the Harmonics Course. Module 2 teaches that type of Harmonics and unit 2 covers the exact one that’s used at the end of that tune. But start at unit 1, module 2.

    Theme of Love. Measures 9 and 10 definitely do not love me.

    Same! Im struggling with that section too. My fingers seem to be the wrong size for those measures. I can play it but it sounds very thin and muted. I’m hoping with more practice it will sound better. I have similar issues with measures 21-23.

    Hello. This is the third month I have participated. The part after the slide up, is difficult for me because I am a big guy with big fingers and as Steve says in the lesson, the frets are narrow, anyway, sometimes it sounds better than others. I do not know how to do rubato with a metronome, it’s impossible for me and I have had to do it looking at the wonderful tool you have to play with the tablature, but it always sounds slower or faster than it should. I find Vibrato difficult because I have to move my finger up and down instead of sideways (sorry for my english).Anyway, I’m happy and I thank you for helping me improve with these challenges. Thanks a lot. I am a premium member

    Wow love seeing all the Spanish Romance videos — will need to try that.

    I am enjoying learning L-O-V-E and still working on memorization and speed. It’s such a pretty song.

    The melody already stands out / sings on the top of the chords. Well done.
    I’m also experimenting with L-O-V-E.
    May I ask what you did for the fingering of Caug (x445) at the beginning of Melody B?
    The video lesson shows barred 1 & then 2 on the G string. But Christopher is doing something different (something superhuman with 2-3-4 😅) Thanks
    At the moment I’m simplifying by only playing the 2x 4s…

    Here’s my version of Spanish Romance. Was lots of fun to learn, thanks for the beautiful arrangement.

    Also, I just happen to have learned the James Hill version of L-O-V-E a little while ago, so I thought since this song is part of the challenge, albeit in a different arrangement, I post it as well just for good measure (pun intended). Hope that’s ok, otherwise please go ahead and delete or move to a different part of the forum.
