Duo Françaix - Isabella Selder and Eliška Lenhartová playing from Danzas Españolas Op. 37 - No. II Oriental by Granados. Isabella plays on a 1981 Dominique Field and Eliška on a 2015 Ennio Giovanetti guitar.
This is a crazy piece. It's meant for beginners - well, it's all in first position, no bar chords, no double sounds, no tricks. I am not a complete beginner, but the rythmic structure of this piece was making my mind crack. I think you should see some steam coming off my head. Enjoy learning in on your own ;)
I don't pretend on cleanness in play with this one, just happened to have perfect mood to play this piece today. Maybe you will enjoy it, too.
This is one of my favorite pieces, love it.
I really want to play it significantly faster, but today this tempo is already pushing my abilities (including a necessary slowdown for the second part - just because it's too hard otherwise, but if I make the first part slower it will be just incredibly boring)
I am playing 's arrangement which has 3rd string tuned to F#, and I think it makes this piece easier. Also Noad's arrangement increases harp-like effect in the first part, which is part of the beauty of this piece.
Nice right-hand etude by Ferdinando Carulli (1770-1841) from Frederick M. Noad's book "Solo Guitar Playing".
I now I am rushing a bit (and it needs more work for the last two bars of the first and second parts), and I am maybe pounding too hard, but I couldn't help posting it today. A very addictive piece. Once you start parsing notes for the first time, you just can't stop and will get it learned =)

Was arguing with my friend that expresiveness is orthogonal to speed. He claims its not, and each piece has certain speed which is good for it (depends on taste, but, regardless, the point is for each listener*piece there's a constant value of "the right" speed); I claim you can play expressively at any speed, it's a free choice.
Recording a very slow version of greensleeves to support my argument.
A beatiful and very easy piece for guitar. This particular arrangement is very straightforward, without decorations (good for very early beginners).
