The main problem is sight-reading beyond the 5th position. If I don't check my fretting hand, I tend to mis-fret the notes. If I look at my left hand, I cant follow the score! (just watched the valse clip, and looks like my ring and middle fingers were not in the frame.)
Hi Chu, I like how the bass line stands out and is very clear!
In Valse you play some measures not to the score (2 times).
As of sight-reading, I guess we should commit to memory as much as possible. I find that it is not that difficult actually: at some point I just try to play without the score (even when it does not feel comfortable) and see if I can "guess" the notes correctly. I mostly use the score to see what is the next fragment. And each fragment I can play without looking at the notes.
Update: also, bass and treble notes are not played synchronously. Probably it is extremely hard to get it right without nails. Watching numerous guitar videos I noticed that professionals can produce chords (or other simultaneous strokes) super-synchronously and it sounds sooo good. Even 1/10 of a second un-sync can be heard.
