Not sure that 'better than nothing' works in my case. Anyway, I got this one 'better late than never' right :)

Lucian - well done with the Soleares. A difficult piece. I notice you have to pause after each Falseta. One way that I use to shorten that pause is that when I learn a piece such as this, I learn Falseta #1, for example, and the first 1 measure of Falseta #2. I do the same when I learn a piece measue by measure. I learn measure #1, for example, and incle the first 1 or 2 notes of measure #2, By doing this my mind is not thinking of a break at the end of each measure or, in the case of SOLAERES, at the end of each Falseta.

Thank you Ed.
Yes, difficult piece; I thought about and even tried the way you did to shorten the pauses between different passages of the song, but I guess I need to practice a little bit more.
Thanks again,
Lucian

Tom - very well done. Today while I listened I just watched your right thumb. I like how after it hits a note, it hovers close to the next string it has to play, Great.

Thanks Ed. I was trying to correct mistakes in the piece where I was thumbing the wrong string, usually where simultaneous left hand string muting was involved. Thumb placement also helped me with overall hand positioning.

Another attempt with A Toye. I tried to quicken the tempo, though I still goofed in a few places.

my next attempt at ATOYE - stumbled a bit - tried to keep the lilt - missed the damping (I have to work on making my thumb automatically hit the damp after striking the note).

Ed, you are improving, not looking at your left hand is helping you I think. I hear less hesitation between notes. All good.

Once you get comfortable with the notes you should start working on tempo. I penciled in the count as shown in the attached photo. Be sure and count out loud, and try to maintain a steady beat/count. Otherwise counting isn't doing much good. :D

HI Tom - thanks. It is funny - when I am playing I think I am on tempo, but then when I listen to the recording I can see I am not.

:bravo: If you aren't doing this already, go ahead and pencil in the rest of the score. I found that trying to figure it out actually helped me with tempo.
