That was excellent Paul. Pacing was even and lively. You seemed to hold the notes out to their full measure and achieved good damping. :casque: :bravo:

I won't rehash what Scott already covered but just say he was spot on. R/H movement; L/H thumb.

I look forward to hearing your rendering of lesson 3.

A good exercise is to lay your i-m-a fingers naturally on the first three strings and do rest and free strokes on the D,A, and E (bass) strings with your thumb. It'll help teach your thumb to pivot from the base joint (I forget the scientific name) and prevent that "follow through" with the wrist. After a while, it'll feel so natural you won't even think about it.
