I redid it. It's taken me a couple of months to rework the first 5 months of d01. I guess I can swallow that.
Not only very fast but also steady tempo with THUMB damping!
Men, you nailed it. This is first game changer piece of D01 lesson.
Most people try to ignore thumb damping which I did and regretted. I had to do it all again.
Most important thing is you look relaxed to play. I'm working on relaxation of my LH in these days.
Thanks Ken! Means a lot coming from you. You are one of my favorite students around here! I love watching you progress.
I have been working on d01 since March.. And I've been playing blues and popular music for 5 or 6 years now so my left hand is comfortable. I am watching right hand in video.. Just to help with locating strings.
P.S. We have exact opposite practice habits. You play through the exercises every day.. I play all the songs every day from memory and never do exercises except to record them once. Haha! Too funny to me.
I will upload my variation on this piece for you to hear tomorrow. I came up with a way to add some rhythmic flavor to the piece.
Studying Jazz and Blues now.. So it goes friends. I might make a return to Classical at some point.
