I would be grateful for any comments, constructive remarks etc. Thank you.
Hi Dave, I like your recordings very much, especially Sor: dynamics, arpeggiatos, ritardandos, smooth slurs. Congrats!!
As of Carcassi I have a complaint about dumps (rests): first measure, third beat: the bass note should be muted. I think it is really important here.

The Extensions exercise should probably be played a bit slower, but otherwise it is good :)

Thank you for taking the time to listen to my recordings Andrei.

You are quite right about missing the rests in the Carcassi, I totally missed those upside down golf bat things. :oops: And yes it is important as many of the exercises have been about damping.

This is what makes these lessons such a positive thing - having other students spot what you don't.

Time to do some more practice (with the rests) and then re-record.

My submissions for this month:

exercises number 9 on page 87

Youtube


number 54 on page 102
This one needs practice, possibly further up the neck to start with

Youtube


Fernando SOR EXERCICE II opus 35
Slow at this stage and gaps between sections are too long. However, time to practice before next month's tasks arrive!

Hi Colin, thank you for posting, I enjoyed listening to you play.

You play with an even tempo, and have all the right notes in the right order.

Just wondering if you have identified a reason for the pauses in your playing - for example is it just the time it takes to shift from one position to another with the left hand, or is it that you are not reading far enough ahead in the music?

Thanks for listening Dave.
I've been wondering too and I think it might be to do with time perception during the recording. I seem to play more slowly during recording and the gaps don't seem anywhere as long as they do when listening back - for last yrs exam piece I was surprised when I heard it after uploading, but didnt have time to rerecord.

If the proplem is just time perception then the answer is simple: try recording with a metronome running - if this works OK then you will probably find that after recording with the metronome a few times you can record without.

If the problem persists even with the metronome running and especially if the pauses are in the same place each time, then it is most probably a mechanical problem of shifting from one position to the other. In this case the answer is probably to use M. Delcampe's method of drawing a box around the problem parts on the sheet music and practicing these parts 10 - 16 times per session.

Colin - I agree with Dave. Another thing I was taught was when you are first starting an exercise and learning it measure by measure always break down each measure so that it includes the first and second beat of the next measure.

It only happened on the recording, other playthoughs were fine

tht's good advice.
i usually practice phrases or sections and, as you say, put in at least 1/2 bar of lead in and exit.

thanks for the help folks

Bert - very well done. On the SOR work specifically on connecting the measures that you are having difficulty with so it presents a smoother overall performance. I need to do the same thing with my exercises.
