O Come Emmanuel Variations

Get Flash to see this player.

I placed the capo on the 4th fret for this, thus the higher sound:)

Yet again
you produce something beautiful with your excellent, precise playing and perfect micing.

Sounds great Bill - I've missed a few of yours, but will try to catch up some time.

Best wishes to you and yours this Christmas, and have a wonderful 2009.

thoughtful, haunting, inspiring, beautiful
wonderful variations, beautifully played. A downloader for sure.
PS: how on earth do you slur so fast and so clean? You'll probably tell me practice... right?

I think is a mad
passion for certain folk music to be considered true classical. I know there is a radio station that won't play my music because it is not straight classical. So I continue doing it cause I love it. But mainly when it hits a melodic vein. Thus it becomes addictive to me, cause I crave it and want to be immersed in it. It like smoking, I get so addicted to it, I keep wanting to hit that recording nirvana. So in that process, I get more confident in my playing, thus the ornamentation continues to grow. But no so much just straight leads like Paco de Lucia. But trying to import more beautiful styles.. Thus my music won't be just a cavalcade constant single string leads.

So I don't qualify for being the worlds greatest slur player, but mixed in with addictive chordal sequences the slurs get more fun in a way. Thus the addiction to slurs grows.

Now I am confusing myself :^)

thanks for sharing a bit of what
goes on in your head. We can tell when nirvana's close and the immersion's complete then the inversions flow. I think this addiction's okay.

Classical music by definition
is music written in a particular period between 1750 and 1820. While this piece of music is not technically "Classical: music, it is Classic music, which is another thing altogether.

You do Classic music Bill, which I define as music that will stand the test of time. Your recordings, in whatever genre, will stand that test and survive because they are so well played and recorded my friend.

So while this may not, by definition, be Classical music, it is wonderful and Classic in it's own right. Thanks for sharing Bill, and may you have a wonderful and joyous Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Good point
but you see there are so many alterations to even classical music . . . Look at Mozart!

Here is a wiki on musical time periods:
Even Mozart didn't follow the so called classical rules!
The major time divisions of classical music are the early period (which includes Medieval (476 – 1400) and Renaissance (1400 – 1600)); the Common practice period (which includes Baroque (1600 – 1750); the Classical (1730 – 1820) and Romantic periods (1815 – 1910)) periods; and the modern and contemporary period which includes 20th century classical (1900 – 2000) and contemporary classical (1975 – current).
The dates are generalizations, since the periods overlapped and the categories are somewhat arbitrary. For example, the use of counterpoint and fugue, which is considered characteristic of the Baroque era, was continued by Mozart, who is generally classified as typical of the classical period. Beethoven, who is often described as a founder of the romantic period, and Brahms, who is classified as romantic, also used counterpoint and fugue, but it is other characteristics of their music that define their period.

I think of the word classical as being so numerous in definitions. I think our English language is sorely in need of more accurate words to convey their meanings. We earthlings fall victim I think to the english language and it's very limited interpretations!
Thanks so much though from stopping by. i always enjoy your take on things.

Classical, contemporary, it's all good
Whatever the genre the orchestration belongs in, all I know is it's good listening, and it's going into my Xmas playlist. Bravo and thank you!
