  1. I love it when a musician rearranges a piece and out does the original artist. It would be a rare instance that I would select a Beatles tune, given other reasonable listening choices. The next time someone raves about the Beatles, I’ll have more ammunition to back up my assertion that they’re overrated.

  2. A wonderful performer and a very well centered and lovely person!

    Did you notice she does her classical tremolo only with p-i-m? Yes, just thumb + two-fingered. In another interview she explained and showed in detail her tremolo technique. I had learned tremolo by adapting from 5 and 6 note arpeggios (blame it on Segovia hehe) and had a tough time with the 4 note classical tremolo until I went to the 2 finger (plus thumb, of course) tremolo that Ana demonstrated and explained well. Now I don’t confuse my 5 note flamenco tremolo nor my arpeggios with classical tremolo. Problem solved and solved well. I can use equally well p-i-m or p-a-m but the standard p-i-m-a just makes my fingers unhappy. Whether it is due to all that flamenco tremolo and/or 6 note arepeggios, I don’t know. But Ana solved my classical tremolo. And there is no problem maintaining rhythm/speed, that is, keeping in compás whether the tremolo is classical or flamenco. Thanks Ana!
