FDP Forum / Home Recording Forum / Tarrega Etude - Fuji X-T1 Video content

My nice classical has spent way too much time in its case over the past 14 years (makes me feel old just saying that..) so I got it out for a first attempt at using the X-T1 for video.

Embarrassed to say it took like 5 minutes of youtubing before I could find the button for video mode..

I play my strats way more these days but the Sor and Tarrega Etudes are still a lot of fun to come back to.

Need to find an external mic but not disappointed with the cameras mic.

That was really nice and more deserving than page 2 obscurity. Beautiful melody. I really should get a classical someday. Had a Yamaha back in 80's. It's almost stupid that I haven't got even a budget classical.

Nice job; especially being away from it for 14 years. I guess it's like riding a bike....

I have limited classical experience; one thing I know is it takes a long time to reach the level of being just 'bad' at it (not horrible).

You've obviously passed both those levels by far - I can tell by how your 'A' finger sounds - not all tinny and scratchy like a beginner. Nice technique and vibrato as well.

You should rediscover your classical again because you've got game.

Thanks for comments. Actually as per littleuch I thought this had dropped off the face of the earth lol.

2Lthumbs just to clarify, I meant that the guitar had spent too much time in the case for that long, not that I hadn't played it. I was very focused in classical guitar for a period in youth and try to keep it up. I play regularly, just have several other classical guitars lying around so don't get my "nice one" out of the case very often.

The 'A' tone involves rather meticulous fingernail maintenance, which is typical of classical guitarists. Diamond files and 2000 grit sandpaper, etc.

Also lots of practice and ultimately, loving the piece you perform.
