Hello, after hearing your recordings, I'm a little ashamed of uploading my Manuelito :oops:, however I' not completely dissatisfied with it, when I first heard it I though "this time I'm not going to be able to play it", but now I don't see it so impossible anymore, so that's an improvement!

You're too hard on yourself, Esteban. It is quite good really. I have no advice other than more practice. I start every lesson thinking "I'll never be able to play that." But we're proving anything is possible. For a little encouragement once in a while I go back and listen to the pieces from previous lessons to see how far we've come. Keep practicing!

Hi everyone

Well played Rick and Esteban. I really enjoyed listening to both of you, and you are definitely being too hard on yourself Esteban. I think Rick and I are both striving to play consistently at a higher tempo but I notice that your Manuelito is about 40 seconds shorter than my last recordings below.
I thought I had made quite a bit of progress with both pieces, but when it came down to recording, the tension set in.
So, here are my final attempts at these pieces. Compared to last year I have made two major advances, which are probably linked. I put enough effort in to actually enjoy playing the pieces and managed to make a recording of both.

PS Vincent - you are right about my left thumb problem. Even though it was about 30+ years since I played electric guitar regularly I think it's a habit from then! I'm trying to work on it.....

Well done Stewart. I love the wry smile after the first attempt at the scale section in Manuelito. And you nailed the ending!

You're right on with respect to my challenge with tempo. It is always the last thing I try to tackle, after simply learning the dots and then playing it musically. Only then do I try to push the tempo up to or beyond the recommended speed. But that takes more time for me than a month, typically. In some cases I may be able to play it faster but not musically, so I slow it down a bit for performance video. The last couple lessons have had some tough pieces to play at tempo. When I look back on my past year, I see some improvement with playing better tempo but it's a work in progress.
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

I was not happy about Manuelito; so gave him another chance. Am I more satisfied? Just a little, can do better with more time

:bravo:
Great tempo. Good rhythm. Great interpretation. Just a few picky flubs. Very nice.
