Is the goal to have a flat thumbnail tip? My thumbnail hooks down on both sides and I think that is a problem sometimes?

In case anyone has hooked nails which make playing so much harder and produce bad tone here is a perfect solution which worked great for me: viewtopic.php?f=87&t=69527 This problem bothered me for a couple years, finally it is fixed, my 'i' finger is as good as others now :)
It is the axis entering and exiting the sides of a finger. If you look at a finger horizontally the nail would look down like this:

Thanks Andrei & Chu for very useful comments

Prelude comments: probably a wrong chord at 0:59.
Didn't bother to read it properly :oops:
Andrei Puhach wrote:Also, I noticed an interesting thing that before starting each measure you land all fingers on strings, so as soon as a bass note starts ringing the trebles from the previous measure are muted. Is it done on purpose or it makes playing easier for you? Sounds like a combination of 114 and 114a :)
It was done on purpose to damp the trebles, but looking at the Prof's video he seems to let them ring. I'll try it that way.
Andrei Puhach wrote:Also, the guitar is a bit out of tune.
Yes, I'm checking intonation on the higher notes. They seem more sensitive to position relative to fret and pressure. It's only a ply guitar so perhaps the time has come for a project?
Andrei Puhach wrote:As of hesitations I noticed it is getting much worse towards the end, especially when pieces are long (like >2 minutes). I think the best way to deal with that is to learn last measures pretty well and even start learning pieces from the end :) Actually, even David Russell does that! Check out his interview on Youtube: "David Russell: Guitar Talks with Benjamin Verder"
Good idea.
I often have problems with repeats, maybe concentration lapse as noticing the end is nigh.
Chu Bun wrote: Colin,
for some reasons, The A bass note were OK, but the E an D bass notes were barely audible.
I use headphone for the posting and it sounds ok, but listening on laptop speakers I can hear what you mean. Maybe need to empasise a bit because on short duration of notes.

Ok, I found some images here: aaronshearerfoundation[dot]org/site/online-supplement/tone-quality-and-your-nails/

My case is called "curved lengthwise contour" (for the index finger only, the thumb is fine):
Image

Your case is probably "curved sideways contour".

Now, it looks like the spoon should help in both cases. It is not really flat. The nail should look natural and visually appealing, not completely flat.

Good picture. Yes, curved sideways contour, correct.

Hi there... my submission for this lesson.... :chaud: ... a bit late....some rough hand position changes (never played that many notes in those frets by the sound hole before) ....and uneven tempo in the Ghiribizzo ... but I like it anyway ;)

Hi all, here is my attempt at the Pagannini - don't seem to be able to record it without any errors.

Also I notice from the video that I am lifting my fingers too far away from the frets - so needs more work, but of course I am playing catch up.
