Description
I had a dream - vision when in bed, while sleeping of Andre Segovia a few years ago and will never forget it. I would really and truly love to dedicate this piece to Andre Segovia. Not sure if I'll ever receive another visit, but with all my heart I want to dedicate this piece to him. The true father of the classical guitar Andre Segovia !

This is the Prelude

Cello Suite No. 1 by J.S. Bach with a bit of variation on the finale !

Well done!!
Nice coda! Very musical rendition, as always. Did you work this out by ear, or did you use music? Just curious.

Thanks
This was a combination of both !

Sometimes I think I might get myself in hot water with the classical purists because I am a bit too liberal with my sprinklings of originality :) )

Well Bill
If Segovia was listening, and I'm pretty sure he was, then I'm also sure he was very pleased with you offering. You are such a fine plater that I'm not usually surprised by one of your pieces Bill, this this time you've outdone yourself. This is beautifully played my friend and very well recorded as well.

Excellent work Maestro, Bravo

How dare you...
Steal a cello piece!!! Just kidding. Segovia, Parkening, Romaro, Bream all do this piece as it translates so well to guitar. Bach's cello suites are very spiritual and meditative to me.... so I really appreciated this version. Maybe I'll post a cello version soon.

Amazing...
...I am not a guitarist, but I play a little. I can completely appreciate the skill it takes to play a number like this little Bach piece. You have done quite a beautiful job on this one. What a beautiful dedication to the master player of the 20th century! Very uplifting to hear you play. Thank for sharing this wonderful number with all of us.
Peace.

Just when I think you couldn't outdo yourself, you play something else stunning. Your local radio station needs to hear you play.

In Awe
I'm in awe of your playing ability. I got my guitar out for the first time in quite awhile just a while ago and after this I'm putting it back. Smiles. Truly inspiring my friend, and the sound is crystal clear. Very good recording quality from all that I heard. Bravo.
