I really admire how you play through these pretty long pieces with very few flubs. Here. there's one moment where you make a small flub and it doesn't affect you at all. Brilliant! Plus you've memorized the whole piece and play with no hesitation or memory lapses. Impressive.

I notice that you sometimes do something that I have to work on; namely, you tug on strings as you play them and cause them to bend. This indicates some tension in your left hand. At least, this is what my teacher has told me. Maybe I'm wrong! I'm told to work on a lighter touch.

Thanks Jeffrey. I made many many mistakes and admittedly probably could/should have spent more time on it but I kind of wanted to move on to #3.

I'll ask my teacher about the string bending issue.

No, you made maybe one slight flub! I only mentioned it because I'm impressed at how unflappable you are--this is great. And you're moving very quickly through these studies! I hope that you enjoy #3; it seems like less of a 'study' and more musical than the first two. Lucy, who posted on your last video, has her own video where she performs this piece. And also Stephen Kenyon on this site (I hope I have this right!) has an excellent tutorial on it as well.

Oh, and there's a great analysis of the piece in the Analysis of Classical Guitar Works section here on the forum.

I can't see what your right hand is doing but you have a pretty good sound, so I can only assume that you have a pretty good stable right hand technique going on. Keep it up!
