Thanks, Pierre, for replying to Xavi - yes - it was *me* chatting to Javi / Xavier that suggested he post in the forum - just in case an experienced player might take it on board.... Xavi did suggest in the chatango mailing you directly - it was me that asked him to post it as an open question in the forum rather than contacting you directly - I know you are a busy man ! LOL
I also referred Xavi to Thaxted - your next FM project in case that might be of interest to him -
It's all good....
Now - both of you - excuse my broken Spanish to Xavi - it is as bad as my broken playing -
y tambien @Xavier amigo mio de habla espanol - espero que tenga éxito en sus estudios musicales
Bill / o sea Guille, mi nombre espanol !
LOL / jejeje
.... there really is no hope for me, is there ? ( and I won't even try to formulate that idiom in Spanish, Xavi - that's for a different chat room somewhere! )
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
Dear Pierre and Bill,
Pierre, thank you so much for your reply, pity though as I think you would have made a great tutorial to teach people how to play this fantastic tune.
Anyway, thank you Pierre for inspiring me!
Bill, thanks for the advice and your good wishes, hopefully many will see this post and will be willing to play this piece and maybe help others to do so as well!
And don't worry about your Spanish, it's great! my advice to you though is to go to Latin America!
All the best!
Thank you so much Pierre for taking the time to reply
No worries if you don't have the time, I am sure you must be very busy and I won't be asking 100 times LOL, I totally understand you can't spend your days answering everybody's requests!
I have started to look at it, and changed some stuff from the sheet comparing to the actual tune, and I am doing pretty OK but your expertise would make things much easier for sure
I am glad to be part of Fiddlerman's community thank you again for sharing so much experience
Here is my progress with the Yann Tiersen's piece. As you can see, it is far from being perfect and I experience some problems at some specific points...2 mainly. I attached a jpg file with the two parts I have difficulty with, basically the transitions stressed out with the red arrows.
If you, or someone else, could help me with that I would be very grateful!
Thanks Pierre for your help. Understood for the fingering, I was already doing it that way actually but wanted your opinion...I need to practice more basically because I find it hard sometimes not to touch the other chords.
By the way, I have just started playing Thaxted, will it be too late if I submit the video next week?
All the best
