Tonight I performed four pieces by Francisco Tarrega at the North Country Arts Council annual Muse project held at their gallery space in downtown Watertown. That went very well. I had a couple of brief fumbles that were really insignificant. No one but I knew they happened. I was complimented much afterward. Originally I wanted to play some Beatles songs arranged for classical guitar but as I took my seat I changed my mind. I generally save Beatles arrangement for later in any given set after I have warmed up a bit. Going into them cold may (or may not) have gone well. Rather than gamble, I played it safe. After all I only had about 10 minutes and I did want to make a favorable impression, which I did. I counted roughly about 75 people in the audience. Thre years or so ago we had over 200 in attendence.
