That is the link to the video.

Please, feel free to make constructive comments since I will use them to work on my playing. Thank you very much.

Great job Juan,

I would like for you to practice the piece with your eyes closed and hear it like you are singing it.

Welcome Juan! And that was a nice presentation.  You are keeping your fingers,except the pinky close to the fingerboards which I still can't do.  (Naska! your comments please.)  Please introduce yourself.

Juan, good choice of tune, and I like your playing. Your tone and intonation are good.

If I could just point out a few things : I think you need to work on your timing. In some places you slow down, others you speed up a little.

At 00'19 and 00'36, you are taking just a little bit too long executing those little ornaments, and as a you've effectively "stretched" the bar. At 00'42, you've done the opposite, and speeded up a little, and cut short the duration of that bar. You may not notice when playing by yourself, but an accompanist would.

Perhaps you could run through the tune along with a metronome to check your timing?

Once you have nailed that, then there's plenty room afterwards for expressive phrasing :)

I hope this helps. Keep up the good work!
