Amazing!
Another very nice job by you, Bill. I've never heard Bolero on guitar
before, but it seems like a great idea, now that I've heard your version!
Works really well. Like the harmonics.

I'm curious to know you recorded the guitar in two takes, with the
repeating bass figure on one, and the melody part on the other? I suspect
you didn't, in which case I don't know how you managed to play the two
parts together! Pretty amazing.

So, if you're going to produce...
...distinctly Tilerish fingerstyle versions of standards from all genres,
then you have to check out the music of Rick Ruskin. I used to have the
recording he did with Lewis Ross called 'Sounds Familiar'...much of
which seems to be on one of his compilation CD's...

Because, you see, I can easily imagine a Tiler "covers" CD in the
offing... whether it be classical, folk, spiritual or pop repertoire, you
seem to be able to make tunes your own, Bill...

Rick Ruskin is great. I have several albums and CD's of his that I have
treasured for years. Tiler does remind me of him on some of his tunes. They
both have a lot of originality and passion in their playing.

a favorite, Tilerized!
Very nicely performed unique take on this classic... definitely has that
signature Tiler-style in it, which makes it very delectable... different
enough from Ravel's original to showcase your great ability to add your
own touches to just about anything. Funny you should put the camels
in... they fit! The things you did to this gave it even more of the
middle-eastern (Moorish) flair that exists in Spanish music, and we'll
forget that Maurice Ravel was French :-) As always, an amazingly
beautiful re-setting of this powerful tune. In some ways I wanted it to
build as the original did, with you doing full strums at the end, but
your soft touch worked well too.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Wow
Your guitar playing is simply amazing. This is a favorite piece and I didn't
want your version to stop. Thanks.

Took me back
One of my favourites Bill, and I really like the way you've arranged this.
This seems to be the best use of orchestral sounds you've done so far
- lots of empathy for the guitar part in the string arrangement. You
get a lazy North African feel here - very Moorish as Eduard said. I
think this is as much the strings as your playing. Took me back to 76
camping outside Zagora on the edge of the Moroccan Sahara.
Very well done!

Peaceful
I enjoyed listening to this. I like the exotic flavor and the thoughtful, unhurried feel. I was reminded of enjoying the quiet, rural twilight.
