    Re: I'm beginning to want to play classical

    Wow. I thought I would easily follow suit if such a thread were begun, but it will take some real effort to do so in this format. I'll try. . . . soon. . . . I hope.

    Re: “Free” vrs “metered” tremelo

    Of course, dynamic variability through a sustained tremolo is a pretty common technique going back as far as tremolo has been discussed/notated. Emulating the human voice has been a commonly...

    Re: Happy Birthday - Raffaele Calace

    I have some favorites, although my own library certainly isn't comprehensive. Perhaps a thread with its own relevant title? I'd happily contribute to such after I shed the daily office shackles.
