This month's submissions.
Still somewhat flaky at this stage, but I'll continue with Packington as I rather like it.

I think I might also try the Carulli as I rather like Andrei's rendition and it has inspired me to have a go.

Colin - well done. Question - what are you using for fingering on Packington for the measure enclosed in the "box"? I have been using M-I-M-I but I am not getting the speed that you show.

I use mimi. I practiced it very slowly at first, speeding up bit by bit.
It was the LH I found hardest, I keep missing the 1st D with the 4th finger.

Ed,

It may be easier to fret the notes if you move your elbow a little bit farther from your body. Compare your elbow with Andrei's in the video next to your original post. In the Packington's Pound piece, all the notes were there but your tempo was a little off. Many sixteenth notes were too long, and many quarter and dotted quarter notes were too short. Maybe play slower and try to keep corrected note duration.

For the notes in the box, following the same pattern and previous measures, I had measure 12 started with m-i, then (on paper) into the box with [m-i| m-a-m-i-a-m|a] m-i. But in the clip I was busy thinking about damping the open E and lost track of the treble line. So there were probably a couple extra a's in the mix.

Colin,

Good job in following the dampings as noted in the Packington's Pound piece. There were a few delays here and there, and an extra note near the end of the middle section (measure #31). But nothing that cannot be fixed with more practice time.

Colin, Chu - thank you. I will work on arm/elbow position, timing and fingering.

Hello.
Still having issues with the damping of the strings, and other technicalities...but it sounds ok to me :)
Thanks for commenting.

I might have guessed you 2 would be setting the gold standard again.
Both very well played.
Andrei, I particularly liked your use of tone variation in the Cutting.

Ah well, back to the practice room!


I second that!...Ive heard the Andante before, dont like it much, but Andrei even made sound interesting.

Edna,

Good job with the damping in the Packington's Pound piece. I think some of the 16th note groups (such as measure 41) were not played evenly. The notes should have the same duration such as ta-ta-ta-ta-ta--, not ta-tata-tata.
For the Saltaren piece, make sure you damp the open A string in the last measure.
Other than those two, very well played.

The Pound sounds really good. Timing is there, the hesitations will soon go with practice.
