Between taking D01 and D02, all my travel, and the transition to spring (and thus kayak season), I have been scrambling to catch up with you all. So I'm basically going to be that kid we all hated... The one who scrambles to turn the entire semester's work into the professor at the last possible moment. I kind of feel bad for not keeping up on the current conversations and really wish I had discovered this forum back in September.
I just spent a good deal of time power-watching a great number of your videos for the d02 lessons and I have noticed something. Many of you are in agreement that this lesson's pieces are in some ways personal struggles with things like technique, rhythm, fret buzz, small hands, managing multiple voices in a piece, etc. What I have noticed from watching so many of your earlier recordings and working my way through to current ones in one sitting is that everyone's more recent recordings on the more difficult repertoire sound much better than their earlier, easier pieces. I'm impressed with everyone's personal progress! Better tone, less fret buzz, smoother rhthms, and all on more difficult material. Everyone who has stuck with it this far is so much improved. Bravo!
So, just saying... It's been really great trying to catch up to you all. I hope to have my lesson 5 recordings posted later this week. At my rate, Lesson 8 probably won't be posted until mid May...
