    Here’s Etude in Em. There are so many areas of improvement here for me. Looking forward to the feedback 😊
    Thanks in advance!

    This Etude is beautiful and haunting. For me, mastering this piece is a challenge and I will continue to work on it. For the purposes of your generous contest, here is the link to my video.

    I will be trying the alternate fingering recommended by Andrew and others.

    Thank you for this learning opportunity.

    Hi everybody!
    Here’s my November entry with Etude in E minor.
    I was experiencing some technical difficulties with filming this video.
    But I still hope you enjoy it as I tried my best.

    Hello everyone!
    My best attempt at the moment to record this beautiful piece. I absolutely love Tarrega and I am grateful for opportunity to perform this arrangement.

    Hi all!

    Had a busy month, but I’m glad I managed to record Etude in E minor today.
    So here it is.

    (I am not happy with my right hand position. I try to control it, but when I get into playing and stop thinking about it, it always goes back to that “wrong” position (way too close to the bridge, fingers not as curled). I can’t concentrate on the notes I’m playing while thinking on the right hand position.)

    I started off with Valse Venezolano but quickly realised it was too much of an ambitious goal, especially within a month. So here is Tarrega’s beautiful Etude in E minor, still room for improvement (bar 3 I particular) and I’ll keep working on it. However, an achievement for me is that I was able to memorise it and play without the music. Andrew has always advised trying to memorise songs, and this has been something I have been struggling with. So even though this etude is short it is a small step in the right direction!

    Well done everyone on all the awesome work this might. I’ve so enjoyed watching and listening to you all.

    Here’s my attempt at the James Bond theme. Unfortunately, I ran out of time… and talent… and ability this month. Here’s recording four number million and seven; the one where I juuuust about got away with it.

    I haven’t been able to play as much as I would have liked and I’ve missed a few challenges. So I’m pretty rusty, sorry for the sub par submission of Valse Venezolano. Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

    Hi,

    Another great challenge!
    Really happy I was able to learn the piece by F. Tárrega. I am still practicing it to learn to be more subtle in interpretation.

    Hi,

    I tried “Valse Venezolano no. 2” – Antonio Lauro this month. I got it to 80% speed.

    Here is my attempt at Valse Venezolano. I have to say, this was one of the hardest pieces I’ve ever attempted. Right up there with Moonlight Sonata. I really struggle with speed. With that in mind, I only managed it at 75% speed even though I was originally aiming for 100%.

    I really admire everyone who managed to do this faster than 75%.
