Classical challenge no 11, this month it is traditional English ballad “Scarborough Fair” made famous by Simon & Garfunkel in the 60’s. I experimented again with the guitar neck angle, in this recording it is quite steep and somewhat challenging for longer sessions. I lowered it now to more comfortable angle.
New year, new challenges and new adventures. To begin with something cheerful, the main theme from a series of films about the most famous archaeologist, Indiana Jones :).
This year I would like to focus a little bit more on contemporary fingerstyle, apart from classical pieces and therefore this first recording.
Very nicely played Radek, it sounds really good…is this the first time I see you use an Ergoplay? I use it regularly on my Classical and it saves me a lot of unnecessary pain and tension! My acoustic is too heavy otherwise I would use it as well.
Yes, this is first recording with Ergoplay. I’ve seen you were using one and I decided to try it out . I got it for Christmas and used ever since. It is not without challenge but it looks like the pros outweigh the cons. My backpain simply disappeared but the neck is much higher and I need to take breaks more often due to the left hand fatigue. It was also interesting to see that with the support some songs got immediately easier and sounded better while some got worse and still require work to catch up.
