Happy New year all.
Here is my attempt at Carcassi, Allegretto, opus 59. I know that it is a bit slow and I'll have to work on that.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Qadir, great job. It sounds great and you look much more relaxed. I noticed you hesitated a few times but you got right back on track. You have a good sence of rhythm. When I try to get a piece "up to speed", I set my metronome at a lower speed and when I get comfortable I raise the speed. I do that until I get it where I want it to be.

Thanks Ric,
This was only my second post. I still have a lot of work to do. Perhaps by June I'll be at the top of my game :D

My wife really liked this one.

Happy New Year to Mr. Delcamp and the moderators and my fellow students in Level 3! I'm finding these exercises to be very beneficial, my playing of pieces I already know well has already improved.
Hi Greg!

Congratulations on the Carcassi Valse!! very nice and clean. The extensions sound good too!

Happy New Year!

My daughter, grabbed the guitar today and picked up RH technique very quickly. Restrokes and bass with the thumb. Only you guys can Imagine how I feel about that. She´ll be 9 next month

Qadir and Julio, thanks for listening to my .mp3. Qadir, I thought your Allegretto was pretty good. It is around the same tempo that I have been working at. It takes me a lot of effort to bring almost anything up to speed. Really fast tempos are beyond me. Fortunately, most pieces sound fine if played a little slower than ideal as long as they are musical.

Very nice Ric. And on the backpacker to boot! I don't have this one ready to record yet, it's unlikely before the lesson closes.

Hello again,

Here's my Sor Valse. It still needs a little work, but it's coming along.

Sorry everybody, I've kind of been on an extended Christmas break - now getting back into the swing of things!

Leonardo, excellent work on the Carcassi - the 1st posting had very clean and propulsive arpeggios - I thought the faster 2nd posting of this was also good but I think the arpeggios really shone on the slower posting. You have done some interesting things musically with the faster tempos. The Sor Excercise is perfect that way - what a revelation hearing it at this tempo, it gives it a much more combative and jesting character. The Sor valse again is very different at that fast tempo - it really comes across as Spanish and maybe closer to flamenco. I think some of it could be cleaned up in a few sections, but overall it's a great interpretation! You are clearly hearing something in these pieces that I missed and breathing a lot of life into them.

Julio, you're right, you do the extensions very well. Also, good job on the Carcassi!
