I'm REALLY not sure why anyone would want this, but for those that have asked for it, I've added both an RSS Feed and an mRSS Feed for the "Best of a Bad Lot" entries.
Practice Session from 05-15-06

Agustín Barrios Mangoré:
Julia Florida

Just another practice passs - no better than the previous pass but different - was dinking around with tempo and volume etc.

I used the cedar on this one - I really don't care for how it records- too bad - it really sounds better in person that on recordings from sime silly webcam - dern it!! Also - the DAMN video cut out again right at the end - so the last couple of seconds of video don't show -- GRRRrrrr.

Anyway - as background for the piece - written, as I understand it, in December 1938 when he was Professor of Guitar at the National Conservatory in San Salvador. It's a barcarola dedicated to the niece of Francisco Salazar, one of Barrios' friends and admirers. Apparently he liked to do this... dedicate pieces to his friends and acquaintances.

"Julia Florida" means "Julia Blossoming" - which makes sense, I guess, if it was for a girl becoming a young lady.

Note 5-17: I clipped off the first 15 seconds or so from these videos - that was just silliness - not part of the piece - and just made the video files larger.

Just as an FYI: I was sort of getting bored with this piece so I made one more pass at this on 06-03-06 - and I'll call that the final pass for now. Better in some ways - maybe worse in others - so what else is now...
