1. Slowing the tempo, tapping the beat, internalizing the beat.
2. Keeping my LH pinky curved and NOT pointing. Keeping the LH fingers close to the strings.
3. Keeping my LH thumb positioned correctly and NOT bending the thumb joint.
Also, I have been playing the exercise pieces without sheet music. I am thinking this approach would help me use the right side of my brain (creativity) and allow me to use my ears more (critical listening). I am still messing up too much when recording! Any thoughts on this?
I have included video with and without metronome beats.
Please feel free to give me feedback. Thanks so much for the support, Nelson.

This is pretty good work! The scale could use more crescendo-diminuendo with the rise and fall of the line. You kept it pretty even volumes the whole way.
There are a couple hiccups where a nail got caught or a note fretted out here and there with the rest of the samples. These aren't big concerns.
If you listen closely to your recordings, you will notice a click with each attack of the string. This is cause by one of 3 reasons, in my experience.
1. Your nails might be too long. This is also why the bail snags here and there.
2. Your nail shape might not allow the string to glide freely.
3. The flesh of you finger is hitting a split second before the nail instead of the nail and finger hitting flush.
I believe #3 is the culprit. It's a tricky, bad habit that I had some issues overcoming in college.
Other than that, the submissions sound good! Great work!
