Pascal Proust replied to Kevin Richard Nightingale's discussion Intonation problems.
"Have you checked the rightness of the intonation at the 12th fret for each string? Fretting at 12th fret, then playing the natural harmonic at this fret : if the guitar is sharp, both notes should sound equal in tone. If they don't on one or…"

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your kind comment on my video.

It's interesting remembering that a clear picture of this piece only developed once I was way into writing it... Just a simple melody to begin with, but when I made the connection with the imagery of my daughter  - it took on a life of its own ...

I find inspiration for my l pieces everywhere. Do you write your own pieces...?

I enjoyed watching your video,

Musical Greetings of the season to you,

Clive

Thanks for that and glad you enjoyed it. It's a tune that's developed over the years as I've added bits to it. Still can't always get it right though! Cheers Dave.
