Uplifting guitar music - for the guitarists out there

    Having played classical guitar for some years now, with a relentless practice routine and a masterful teacher, I commend the piece 'Se ela Perguntar' written in 1954 by Dilermando Reis. It is grade 7 (Trinity) and in places quite tricky fingering as well as taking the player fully over all positions on the fretboard. Here it is performed exceptionally well by acclaimed American guitarist, Matt Palmer.

    Observations welcome - especially from other classical guitarists who've played this composition.

    That is nice. I didn't know Matt Palmer. Thanks for sharing.

    Ah, it's lovely.
    I like the way he is able to give presence and invisibility to the right thumb notes at the same time- there is plenty of scope for over-sounding them
    (sorry not very technical)
    I play guitar, but I don't know this piece-a couple of times it led me to recall Satie's 3rd Gnossienne (not guitar...)

    Yes indeed - a fine guitarist. A very relaxed look too.

    Fine observations from you - and I must reacquaint myself with the this piece to see if I can hear the similarity.
