I Have just been rifling about in the cutlery draw looking for a very large pie slice. - Seems I need to cut myself off a very large slice of humble pie.

It appears you were right Chu - this month's pieces to seem to be somewhat on the hard side. But I can't say I haven't enjoyed the challenge so far. Like Ed, I still have a few/many errors but thought I'd put my Samba Lilly up to demonstate the economy of movement in the left hand.

Following on from my last post you can see from my video that there is no movement of the fingers in the left hand during the first bar, and very little movement in the second bar.

Ere's me english bramble, played slowly and without the dampings (I'll put those in later). Does anyone else have sore fingers from all those pull offs?

Again some/many mistakes. somehow it seems harder to play it slowly. Using the capo on the 5th fret certainly helps though as the frets are closer together making the stretches easier.

I'm hoping to have it better by the end of the month.

Sounds great with the capo. Interesting to see the Samba demo too, folks will find that very helpful.
I'm avoiding this month as I don't want to wear the weak section in my nail.

Dave- the exam piece is coming along. My focus is to stay with a consistent timing through the many repeats of the movements. I tend to speed up on familiar sections then to slow down when I need to think about the next steps.

This one sounds and looks good! I think the only excessive LH movement is at 0:50. For inspiration on economy of movement and effortlessness I recommend to watch Nicholas Petrou. It appears like he barely touches strings.

Hi Ed, you definitely have enough stamina to go through the entire exercise :) It is getting a bit difficult and tiring towards the end.

Andrei - thanks - I think it is less stamina and more focus on even pacing.

Thanks Colin,

Sorry to hear your practice has taken a bit of a knock this month.

I lost a big chunk from my thumb nail so had to apply the nail glue and china silk to both sides and infill the gaps(multiple layers of glue). I keep wearing off the glue and the china silk becomes exposed, but its easy to re apply and dries quickly. I think I'm mainly playing with glue now rather than thumb nail, It's nice smooth glue though as I filed it down with an emmery board and then polished it off with 500 grit wet and dry.

Thank you Andrei - just watched Nicholas Petrou playing la catedral then watched my video back again - seems as if I have much work to do.

Ana Vidovic has it pretty much nailed as well - she really is a joy to watch.

Here is my optional part of the assignment:

Audio is recorded with Zoom H2n which sounds much better than built in phone mics :)

Sounds really great mate!

I think you have the levels spot on and the sound is nicely synched up with the video.

Now that you have some decent recording equipment, we can all hear how beautifully you play. You seem to favour a John Williams techniue with the right hand at right angles to the strings, whereas I tend to go for a bit more of and angle - more of a Julian Bream technique.

I enjoyed listening to you and look forward to hearing you play the other pieces. I think the vibrato worked well also.
