Sorry I am late and I have only one video managed. On the weekend there is more of me, I hope.
But it is a start :)

Perfect Andreas :bravo: . You keep the beat steady, again good job.
Oh, one more thing: try to relax your left hand, here is Lucian's video. Notice his left hand, so relax, gentle touch :lol: and then compare to yours.

You have problem with the rhythm, try to count out loud the beat or use metronome. Keep it up Lucian

Binh, it seems to me the hardest, since the start. I'm doing the counting out loud, the metronome and even both. I just need more practice and that's what I intend to do. Thank you,

Hello guys,

I promise I will record this tune once again. So far that's what I have. Binh, what can you say about my left hand?

Great work Georgi :bravo: . Nice and relax left hand, all the hard practice pays off, eh :lol:
Next step: deal with your right hand ring finger. You can do it :discussion:

In some of the buzz note examples, the noise appears to coming from the slide of a fretting finger on the string as a position shift is occurring. The treble strings (nylon) are more quiet not as noticeable, but the 3 bass strings (wound string) add extra squeaks :-)


Thanks for the tip, John. I appreciate that, guess I have to pay more attention and practice more. :merci:

Hello Binh,
thanks for your tip. I will pay attention on my left hand. I just wanted to publish a new video, but no chance. Too many mistakes. I will practice more too. May I will try it on thursday

By the way Binh, your videos are excellent

@Georgi: I like it, so far I am not yet

It's getting a little better :-)
For the tempo/rhythm issues, some of these pointers may help

Re-check some of the notes in Lo, nous marchon, there are a few that sound a semi-tone below the notated value.

Hello hello! Here is my last submission for Lesson 3. There's a buzzing sound and a delay in playing but I think it doesn't sound very bad :)

I appreciate your feedback :) I have a question though: how to reduce the buzz created by friction when moving left hand fingers from a fret to another one, especially in my "Lo, nous marchons sur un étroit chemin" video. I hate this awful sound!

Hi Binh, very nice work and execution keeping time :bravo:

Also, the position of the guitar is effecting the movement of your left hand. You have crowded your fingers. Try getting the guitar onto your opposite leg. Use either a footstool or a guitar case to angle the heck closer to your check. This will give your left hand and arm a wider range of motion and a lot more freedom. Also, your left thumb is curled around the heck instead of behind.

If you move the guitar and thumb, your fingers will naturally space out, and you won't have to slide every time you switch from LH finger 2 to LH finger 3. It looks like the position is causing you to have to move your LH much more than necessary.

BTW, I love the consistency of the right hand. You have a great natural feel for the beat, and you are evenly distributing your stokes! :bravo:
