Hi Dustin, Enjoyed listening to your songs! All of the songs are wonderfully executed. Leccion 5a's tempo is fast, so it sounds rushed and mechanical. I suspect you can play the song more musically if you slow the tempo. Perhaps, you were going for speed more since the tempo is at 120. If you wish play this song musically, slow the tempo and decide and plan how you will execute dynamics, tempo changes, guitar tone. Hope this helps. Courage and go forth. Regards, Nelson.

Hi Rodger, Ed Sueta has a series of workbooks of rhythm exercises that are wonderful and I believe you can benefit from them a lot. His system teaches you to count using rhythm syllables, so it is a intuitive method. If you are game, I can record myself doing one of the exercises, so that you can see how it works! Courage and go forth! Regards, Nelson.

Hi Everyone. The following videos are my D01-03 Lesson pieces with the following focus:

1. Slowing the tempo, tapping the beat, internalizing the beat.
2. Minimize unnecessary LH movement.
3. Minimize "clicking" sound of RH picking. This one was a challenge! I had to cut my nails for health issues, so I using specialized picks in these videos.

Again, I have included video with and without metronome beats. Moreover, I counted the beats with the metronome while playing.

Please feel free to give me feedback. Thanks so much for the support, Nelson.

Good work, Nelson :bravo: . You show remarkable effort, both hands are relax and the rhythm is just perfect. :casque: . I'm literally smiling watching your videos and happy for you, my friendly classmate. You humbly receive criticism and feedback, really spend time to practice. Though your videos, I can see a lot of patient and large amount of hard working practicing hours . So there is no surprise to see your improvement. Just compare your lesson 1 videos and these recent videos. The difference is day and night.

One strange thing though, in this video Good morning to all, at 0:09 and 0:28,


Youtube


The way your right hand reaches the e string is not smooth, awkward. I recommend you watch how Mr. Delcamp plays this section: his index and middle fingers walk forward from string B to string E. The transition is smooth, natural. Don't reach your hand, use your fingers just like your two legs.

Well, at this rate, soon enough I can't give you any feedback, Nelson, you're a fast learner. :D

Hi Binh, good to hear from you and thanks for the feedback! I changed the way of holding the guitar and I am resting my right arm on the guitar too much. I will work on resting my arm lightly so that I can use my fingers to walk (like legs) to the guitar strings I need. Again, exceptional advice, my friend. Best regards, Nelson.

This 'week' turned into almost 2; the Aguado with the string skipping and i-m alternation is quite the challenge, but it feels good to have finally gotten it to click.
