I recall playing this piece many years ago, maybe 22 years ago, and don’t think I’ve played it since, certainly not in the last 10 or 15 years,yet somehow it was still in the memory banks. Some tunes just get you that way. I used it to demonstrate the Ambra string set by Aquila which is meant to be the nylgut version of their Gut and Silk set, specially created for guitars from the time of Tarrega to Pujol, about 1880 – 1950, and I think it does that admirably. The feel of gut or nylgut is great for a no-nail, flesh technique, and I hope you like the sound. I can’t believe it is a cheap student guitar, but I’m looking forward to the upgrade arriving from Rodriguez in three weeks or so time.
