Chris,

Saw you had subbed to my build thread.

Decided to see how you were playing and what you were working on.

You asked for feedback although I hardly feel I am qualified.

Here is what I would do:
- first, set your metronome about three clicks slower then you are playing that part.
-play it through a few times by taking your thumb off the neck and letting strings buzz. What you are doing is recalibrating the force your thumb and fingers are using. The point of this is to allow the left hand to relax so it will be ready to attack the strings that need it.
-ok, now with your metronome still set slow it's time to work on full complete notes. I find I hear it in my head more then anything but you will know because the music will began to ring true and have a "whole" quality to it. I can still hear my instructor from thirty years ago: Full Compleat Notes! Henceforth to be know as FCN ;)
-it's good to sit down with a focus on what your goal is for that practice session. I will sit down and practice and other times just to play but my goal is alway with the clarity of FCN which I find I must slow down, you know slow down to play faster.

Feel free to critic my critic. Really.

Best of luck, and perhaps some day I might record myself...

I hate sanding wood or anything else for that matter I just happen to be good at it...

Chris,

Cheers Ernandez,

Good advice!

I'm definitely pushing my speed past comfort zone on this recording. I did it in an effort to make it as musical as possible and not dull to play and listen to. In honesty, I was in a rush to get past this piece.. I don't really like it, but I did want to give it at least an honest effort.

I thought I was doing a pretty decent job at getting full complete notes. I do hear where I rushed through some of them. I was making an effort to play it more musically like a piece of music than to play it very evenly as an exercise because I think it would sound even more boring if played even.

I really appreciate you taking a look and offering the feedback! If you think I should work on this piece more before moving on, say so.. If not, I'll catch you on the next one and I'll try to hone it a little better before recording.
