    I love the sound of a Viola played well, not so much when a violinist uses it to practice his violinistic tone in public and certainly not when a group of them disrespect the downbeats, that did not happen though in that clip.

    D.
    But VIOLAS.

    Not to be encouraged. (My wife is cellist, she has me brainwashed.)

    BTW a Viola de Gamba is not a viola in the modern sense, it comes from a completely different family of instruments being viols, and is a good instrument.

    Definitely take up the chance to borrow one, the bowing is hard though.

    It is common fault amongst classical guitarists, so common in fact that many cannot hear it. It is the central trouble that they have playing with others and in particular playing rhythmic styles like flamenco and swing.
    I tried to move you to understanding that she actually DOES NOT make any tenuto or drag on beat 2. Alas..
    This is just irrespective to form and contents of this music.

    It is so difficult to explain to musicians that there is no technique and no articulation at all without contents.

    You cannot say to an actor: this vowel is too long or this syllable is stressed too much if you do not understand the text he says and its meaning.

    I will concede that man is very good on the guitar, also the Goldberg sounds great... I think keyboard music sounds good on guitar as it has that harpsichord like quality in some respects, but with a lot more expressive possibilities.

    Obviously it is very hard to play, much harder than the solo string music.

    I wonder if it would be playable on a lute....

    I’ve started using the cello suites to work on picking and reading as it’s more interesting than most guitar exercises. I know nothing about the music or context, it’s just for fun (even though I’ve been taught one does not play Bach for fun ).

    Bach through stereo Katanas! Nice. Of course, I would get tangled up in all the cords and gear and my wife would have to come in with wire cutters to get me out.

    Under no circumstances is anyone allowed to have fun playing music.

    Haha, that’s a funny image, Roberoo. Actually, after hooking everything up, ready to go I could not understand why there was no sound. I had forgotten to plug my guitar into the whole mess.

    You’re are right Christian77, I feel ashamed now.
