Here's my second post of exercise and pieces. Thanks to everyone that has posted comments and advice about the pieces. The combination of these and M. Delcamp's videos have really helped me understand what I should be doing. Although I have
been practicising since the first post, I've also become more aware of the need for improvement, and for damping in particular. I've have a go at Que Ne Suis-Je La Fougere
for example but gave up trying to damp the C and
G in m9 and B and
G in m10. I can see that musically you would want to damp the G but I would have thought it would have been highlighted in yellow if required - it's so tricky! Would the rest be in a different place too, or do you ever get 2 rests shown?
The thing I'd really like some help with though is the hardest thing for anyone to advise on. How can I be more relaxed when recording or even just playing on my own!? It is around 8 years since I played regularly, so it's possible that practice and improving technique will help, but I'm still envious of many of you that look so relaxed when playing - Ryan, Richard and others for example.
Anyway, here goes, complete with missed notes, extra notes and the odd little nervous hand damping
