Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well.

I've been working on the entire suite for quite some time now, have the Sarabande down very well, the Prelude sounds decent, I think. This is the first half of the Allemande. I thought perhaps I was playing too fast, but, this is about the speed Yo-yo Ma plays at on the cello, (actually, he plays faster), so I think its okay...Also, I feel that despite the relative fastness compared to other guitar versions I've heard, my playing has more feeling than some of the slower ones. When I play it slowly, that feeling comes out even more, but, that's not what I'm posting :P

I made one big darn mistake right in the middle, kind of ruined that passage, but, one can only record so many times before going insane.

Comments and criticisms appreciated.

Nicely done. Pity we couldn't have had a look at your right hand too, that would have been fun.

I like Bach to listen to, but find it very difficult to play, so props to ya.

Enjoyed listening to that....and I agree, right hand video was wanted, I wanted to see you let loose on that side!

Great job!

I think what's most concerning is how oddly far behind the sound hole my picking hand was. I've only played that classical guitar for about 2 hours, so I guess I wasn't really comfortable with it (which is why some of the notes were buzzing too). When I add the second half of the allemande I'll re-record and make sure my picking hand is showing :)
