Great job Chip! Are you using the damping technique in your videos yet?

Thanks Darren. I appreciate the feedback. I "think" I am using the damping technique. Maybe not correctly? We will see...

I must tell you that your tone is very nice, and after your post about RH positioning I thought a little harder about mine. Thanks for the inspiration!

I can certainly see how the 'p' comes into use there. But I am not sure about that 'm' myself.

Hi guys. :bye:

Darren, Referring to the legend on page 4, I believe that damping is done with the left hand, middle finger, i.e. number 2 finger.

Hi Friends,

I only came 2 days back when i was told that I can learn classical guitaring with Mr. Delcamp. I am so privileged and proud.

I have started practicing page 6 exercise 1 but I got a confusion. Please answer it

1) What is the meaning of \1, \2, \3, \4 (as mentioned in page 4). Do they describe right hand \p \i \m \a?

2) Can they ever describe left hand finger numbers? If Yes, how to differentiate?

3) Exercise 1(pg 6) , Bar 7 says we have to stop the preceding note G with 2 finger? Finger 2 = Index. But as we are playing D Note with the index, how can we stop preceding note G with same finger. I can't see this in video also.

Please clear me

thanks :?

I'm just a beginner myself, but standard classical is to call the right hand P - I - M - A and to call the left hand 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 so there is not any confusion. If you would like to relate the two together, 1 = I, 2 = M, 3 = A, and 4 = "pinky" (but of course on the left hand). Thumb is not numbered because... well... this is classical and not travis picking I guess.

In response to question 3 This makes finger 2 middle, not index.

Hope that helps,
Michael

Mike,
I think you mean to include the asterisk below each \1, \2, \3, \4, and \p. If so, that means to damp (stop the sound of) the previous note using the left hand finger, 1=index, 2=middle, 3=ring, 4=pinky, p=thumb.

Yes, in that combination that is absolutely correct.

I was basically just trying to answer questions 1 and 2 together by saying "it's already taken into account, on right hand it's P-I-M-A-x on left it's x-1-2-3-4 so there should ever be any confusion on which finger to use for which technique...". I probably just wasn't very clear. =\

Mike,

My response was meant for the original poster. Sorry about that.
