This was on while my son was being born last Tuesday. The doctor said, "this is good music." It's my wife's favorite.

Your son couldn't have been born under better music. A good omen indeed. Congratulations!

I'm trying to get into these...after my recent allergy to romantic music BUT I'm making an exception for guitar and Carter is a genius. There's an added feature here: Carter playing on his finger tips instead of nails (which is some issue I don't really understand but seems worth noting).

The difference will be in the tone and dynamics produced.

One cannot go far wrong with Sor.

Congratulations to you both on the birth of your son.

The Great Etudes for Guitar [played by Oscar Caceres]


   


All of the big guitar composer names are represented here. The music is very engaging and is well played with a good range of tones from the instrument in a good recording. There is nothing boring or academic about this album.

If he is playing on a period instrument, fingertips was the standard technique, as it was with the lute and vihuela - nails came in with modern guitars.  Even Francisco Tarrega played with fingertips

La Guitare est Mon Maitre





Layoga is a fine instrumentalist and plays music by JS Bach, Handel, Weiss, Scarlatti and Vanhal very well in a very good recording. This is a very engaging and enjoyable listen.

This is one of my favorite recordings. His playing and musicality are staggering--great sound, too. (I often use it to demo gear or to show the realism of my system.)
