Nice effort everyone!
Johnathan and Binh, if I may suggest... Play as if you are playing to someone sitting a meter in front of you.

The Soleares is on its way.

Soleares is struggle to maintain consistency. I could easily work on this another month or more.

In the 2nd bar you play the tied G# and B at 2x speed, should be same as 1st bar.

Hello Sal!
"Play as if you are playing to someone sitting a meter in front of you." ~~~ What a n I c e thought!
" I could easily work on this another month or more"
Yup, I'm still trying , between rise-and-fall of form, the day job and everything else, to do justice to the Soleares..

Well I definitely enjoyed listening to your pieces Sal. Well done for paying attention to each individual note in Soleares (and A Toye too) if I may say so, this is a trait, which I will try to emulate in my own playing.
:bravo:

A misprint?

Post by Jonathan Lamb » Sat Dec 03, 2016 5:14 pm

A misprint? Does anybody agree with me that the 8-pointed damping snowflake on p. 74 (Gamme chromatique), measure 13; is wrongly positioned and should, in fact be at the start of measure 14???

It may be a misprint in the sense that it isn't necessary. The G# rest stroke with the thumb would damp the open A and it can be argued that the same is true for measure 12.

Looks like it should be over the G#. Thumb to damp coming off the G# as Salvatore says.

Hello all! I had to sit out this month due to a bad virus that hit me about mid-month. I had been making progress on both pieces, but I was sick for about 2 weeks and when I picked my guitar back up, I had lost some strength in my playing muscles (both physical and mental). I will join you again for December, as I am now working on the pieces for lesson 4.

I listened/watched your submissions and I agree with the suggestions. I found A Toye difficult to play using the rest stroke exclusively--but that's the usual for me. I hope that someday the rest stroke will begin to come easier for me.

Hi all. I delayed posting this as I just couldn't get the hang of Soleares, so I'm posting my best attempt with a very noticeable mistake at the end. I couldn't help that exasperated look I'm afraid, but things were going ok until I got near the end :) My damping was better than this, but it seems as soon as I start recording myself that all goes out the window! Anyway, here are my best efforts from today.

Ahhhhh, the death stare in the end :lol: that's the right way to move your audiences. Don't worry though, we all make mistakes. But the thing I find strange is your right hand. Your ring and little finger shape are awkward. Your little finger straights like a arrow, it needs to be curled like a banana. Your ring finger moves sideways, that's strange. Normally when you pluck your ring finger, it moves up and down, but you tend to move it sideways.
Behold my artistic painting skill :lol:

Here's a video from Andrei, watch his right hand. I learn a lot from him.
