    I just bought a guitar arrangement of Vivaldi's Violin Concerto in D major, Op.3, No.9, RV 230 first arranged by Bach for keyboard. It's quite challenging, so I'll see how it goes. It will never sound this good, though!!

    I'm also working Manuel Ponce's La Folia Variations and Fugue.

    This is what I hope it sound like someday...

    I'm working on a transcription of the Sinfonia from Bach's keyboard Partita No.2. It's a beast, especially the fugue, which begins at 3:35.

    Arranged the WC Handy song St Louis Blues - tried for a more pianistic, fast harmonic rhythm

    Since I also play piano, I think I'll learn it on that instrument instead--it's actually easier in some respects. The guitar is not really equipped to handle keyboard works, at least not without a lot of modifications/simplifications.

    Trying to get the hang of Tullochgorum - based on arpeggio techniques but with Scottish snap coming out of its ears.
    Not the Scott Skinner variations featured here - just the basic tune, in C.

    My fiddle my joy.

    Some Irish tunes - they're so beautiful. I can't play them to speed, but I can luxuriate in the melodies.

    My fiddle my joy.

    At the moment I'm learning the choral "O dass ich tausend Zungen hätte" (O That I Had a Thousand Voices) written by Johann Mentzer (German text) and Johann Balthasar König (melody) on the tenor viol.

    I'm currently working on Fernando Sor's Guitar Sonata Op.14 and Leo Brouwer's La Gran Sarabanda.

    Next choral: "Meinen Jesum lass ich nicht" (english: "Jesus I will never leave"), namely the melody of the Hymnary of Darmstadt from 1699. The composer of this melody seems to be unkown; the text was written by Christian Keymann.

    Here the melody of this choral played on the organ



    I learn it on the tenor viol, naturally.

    Brahms Cello Sonata No. 2, learning this has definitely helped whip me into shape!

    Rachmaninov prelude in G minor for piano, my lockdown assignment - barring unforeseen developments I'm due for my first lesson back in 3 days' time with one or two passages still taking me to the outer edge of my technique!

    Nice to see guitar players here Have been very lazy with my guitar lately, but started over again with Llobet's Cordoba (Albeniz) transcription. Since my fingers feel stiff, I got a bit excited to really practice again. I have a ton of music I want to play and none of it is easy. I don't want to sound any worse than a CD...
