Agua e Vinho

I recorded my arrangement of Egberto Gismonti's Agua e Vinho, a lovely ballad from his 1972 album of the same name.

Unfortunately, I have never heard the original composition. It's hard to get one's hands on older Gismonti recordings. I made this arrangement by ear based on some piano and guitar performances that I heard.

The piece is tricky to pull off well on the guitar, yet I believe it is relatively simple for the piano.

I'd like to do some other arrangements of Gismonti's music. Loro is one of my favorites right now.
