Description
This is a piece by Giacomo Puccini, I installed a bunch of extra stuff in there :) I always loved the way Jackie Evancho sung it at Americas Got Talent. The closest i've ever got to Americas Got Talent was a few years ago when my wife and I bought a house up in the Nashville area, one of the segment producers called me up when I sent them a video doing an instrumental Johnny Comes Marching Home (it is on MJ). But maybe they thought I was too old I don't know. There is still hope, a harmonica player got in the top 10 and he was 70 and I am not near that age :) Anyway this piece is dedicated to Jackie. I believe she was actually discovered on YouTube. Amazing talent she is, I just love her singing and voted for her 10 times (that is the limit). She actually came in second, she is a big success at such a young age! She sung with Sarah Brightman on AGT.

Really nice track. Be sure and tell them you make your own guitars. That's an America's Talent in and of itself. Wonderful tribute. Thanks for sharing this.

Lovely Touch
Warm, mellow and played with a wonderful feel for the piece, Bill.

Even if AGT doesn't realize it, many of us here do... you have a lovely touch and some authentic talent. ;)

Thanks
reminds me of when I lost my Andre Segovia 1a classical guitar out of my truck going over a bridge. When I went back to were I thought it flew out, it was gone. It was a great, great sounding guitar and expensive.

Thanks for the history of your guitar and the post!

Bill's got Talent
I'm just repeating what others have already said, but yes, it is certainly a nice feeling to get an E-mail alert about a new Tiler submission, and it's a treat to hear you play your classical guitar. As you so often do, you take a familiar classical tune and make it your own; very creative arrangement here, and lovely playing.

Your mention of losing a great guitar off the back of a truck made me wince, because I can relate... I had my first guitar, a classical instrument bought in Brazil for me by my dad, stolen when I was travelling many, many years ago, and I've always wondered how good that guitar was. I didn't know anything about guitars back then, but I really liked that one. I had another classical guitar destroyed by the airlines a few years later... ah well, that's just part of the territory if you travel with guitars, I guess.

Anyway, really enjoyed this track, Bill, and glad to see you back at MJ's!

Good to have you back
Always a pleasure to hear your picking. I don't know the original but I enjoy your melodic playing very much.

Really nice interpretation
I love it when classic 'hits' are covered by other instruments than what the original was written for. You bring in some unusual and lovely ideas that are not possible for a vocalist but really 'sing' when you play them on the guitar.

Your playing's exquisite. Gotta work on your dance moves....

This is very nicely arranged and played. You keep the beauty of the melody front and center....
