Here is an attempt at Que ne Suis-Je la Fougere. I'm still trying to figure out recording and attaching MP3s, so hopefully this will work!

Hi Mark that's nicely played.
Aim to get the bass notes a bit louder to make them stand out more. A strong thumb rest stroke.

Thanks Richard,

Listening to the recording, you're clearly right. My bass line seems to get lost in the melody...something else to work on!

I'm uploading my recordings after two weeks of practice, still not satisfied with the result(fingernail drag - bad tempo) ... maybe with shorter fingernails. Too stubborn for the moment, still trying to obtain a nice feeling and tone with these long fingernails...any advice ?(beside shorter fingernails :roll: ).

Hi,

in this lesson you talk about the minimum time you need to devote to the study of the guitar. IF I want to devote more time to study will it be more useful or harmfull.

Thank you
Glen

Hi Glen,

I don't know whether M. Delcamp will see your message as he doesn't routinely read all posts here, English not being his native language. However, since he says that the times he suggests are the minimum necessary, it's probably fair to say that you could put in a little more time if you are able. But remember to have a break at regular intervals, keep your arms and hands relaxed, and don't practise so hard or so long that you are feeling undue strain, as this can lead to damage. It's best to build up gradually.

Hello - I was hoping I could just edit an earlier post to add this piece but that doesn't seem possible.I omitted this piece back in November when first taking this lesson but I thought I should add it to complete all my lessons. If I'm honest it wasn't my favourite piece then, and I think my performance probably shows it hasn't really grown on me! I don't expect any comments on it as it is somewhat out of place. I hope you are enjoying these lessons as much as I have though. Regards, Stewart

Stewart,
No comment necessary we are all trying to fill in the blanks before the BIG ONE (year end exam.) I just want to let you know that your posts in the various threads have been an inspiration for me and I am a devoted fan.

Hi Folks,

I was doing the D01 lessons -- now that they are over, I'll give D02 a go. Here are my first attempts.
