The exercises from this lesson, they need still a lot of work but I didn't expect the next lesson to arrive so soon!

Rick, I heard your exercises, I prefer the first version of the Sons of Carrillões, might be because I'm grown accustomed to it, but you play both versions quite nicely. The allegro needs a little more work, if you can spare some time on it, with the new lesson it will be difficult (at least for me).

Sons de Carrillhões: It definitely needs a re-recording! I have forgotten at least the end chord in the first part and the last repetition of the first part at the end. I'll try to rerecord it this weekend.

Very well done Esteban. These were hard to master. Thank you for your comments on my recordings.

Just a few picky things on your performance. I think that at this level these are valid nitpicking. First, watch your tuning. That E string tends to creep up after tuning it down to D as the string tries to shrink back to its previous position. I find myself out of tune all the time and have to adjust often. It helps to stretch after tuning down to get the process going. The opposite when you tune it back up to E.

I detected just two issues on Sons Carillhoes that I think we're not related to recording jitters. In measure 6 you break rhythm. I think you're giving the first beat only one eighth beat and it should be a quarter. ( Sorry I can't tell my quavers from my semi breves). In M14 you play the accidental not as a 2-4-2 triplet but as 4-2. At least that's what it sounded like both times through. Also, you didn't play part A again, missing the "D.C. al Fine". Maybe that was just to keep the recording shorter. Lastly, I think you also could get better tone from your guitar. It sounds a little thin to me, though that may just be your recording method. Still I figure it's never a bad thing to remind ourselves to strive for the perfect tone.

The Allegro was very good as well. Good tempo and rhythm. Work on your damping. I spent the bulk of my time this month on Sons de Carillhoes. I found the Allegro not difficult to learn but hard to play cleanly and correctly at tempo. I too had to leave it to move on to lesson 5. Those harmonics will be tough to master!
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Hello Rick, thank you very much for your comments, of course you are right, I had not read properly measure 6, now I'm grown accustomed to the error and it will be hard to change it, but I'll try to work on it this weekend. About the triplet I suppose I dropped it unconsciously some moment in last few weeks...

Thanks also for the advice on the tuning of the E string, it will be very useful.
