Hi. Thanks Penelope. I will try to post something. My concern is initially I think it said if you didn't post then you were unsubscribed to the lessons. Also thanks for mentioning the improv section. I'm not really sure what we are to do with this. It won't let me click on anything. I see it says a certain number of views but it won't go anywhere when I click. Not quite sure what to do on it. Thanks! Susan

I play from the score. I think it's more like a trigger/response thing. I don't have it memorized, i.e. can't play it without the score. Thank you for sharing. Keep it up!

I didn't read the terms well, so I'm late. :oops: For what it's worth, I'm posting anyways.

Help! What microphone input do you all use?

:?: I'm using an external Sony ECM-DS70P. It is taped to the guitar face. The benefit of this method is I don't have to merge the video and audio. Still, I'd like better audio quality than what it gives. If possible, something without merging audio & video. Maybe another brand? :?
I've decide to do the "merge audio with video" method. I ordered a SANYO ICR-FP700D Digital Stereo MP3 Voice Recorder for about $60 from A-m=a-z_o.n. I recently got a Logitech C310 HD Webcam for about $30, which I used for my latest yoo-tube posts. To merge the audio and video, I'll use Windows Live Movie Maker included on my netbook.

The pieces sound good, Chris. I like the way you stabilize your right hand with your thumb: I know JFD mentioned doing so at the beginning of the lessons--that is, resting it on the fifth string in one of our first pieces--and I'm sure it makes for more secure placement of the other fingers. Working on it....

I'm starting the lessons late and am having trouble with d01 1 but it's locked. I'm confused on reading the left hand notation on pg 7 sol la si do. I see the number 2 next to the A note but I don't understand how to play that? Which LH finger on which string on which fret then RH? What about the C with a 1 ? how do I play the numbers in circles below the bar 3 and 2? Sorry I'm off topic for this lesson, not sure where to ask this?

Thanks,
Erich

:) Hi Erich,
Erich List wrote:... the number 2 next to the A note but I don't understand how to play that? Which LH finger on which string on which fret then RH?
The number 2 = middle finger. The A note is on the second fret.
Erich List wrote:What about the C with a 1 ?
The number 1 = index finger. The C note is on the first fret.
Erich List wrote:how do I play the numbers in circles below the bar 3 and 2?
The numbers in the circles are the strings. With the guitar in playing position, counting from the bottom, 3 = G; 2 = B. The horizontal line extending from the right of the circle means play the indicated notes on the same string.

FYI: In the piece itself, the i and m letters below the notes indicate which right hand finger, i.e. index or middle finger.

Hope that helps.

Thank you. With this info I was able to google the notes on the fret board map. I had no idea that a RH G with a LH on the 3rd string 2nd fret turned the G note into an A. I must have missed that page somewhere. Now I'm back on track.

Thanks,
Erich

I am feeling less than adequate having failed to successfully post the requested songs because of my lack of knowledge on recording and posting. Now we are in our winter "going south" mode and I will be offline for about a month. How to survive without the computer? But, I have been doing the exercises and will continue in early February.

On reading the score or playing from memory, at this stage I am playing from the score. Luckily I can read music fairly well having played a lot of trumpet many years ago. I am finding the more I play a piece that I am actually reading ahead of where I am playing and, in some cases the piece is getting logged into memory. because of my age and a slight tremor in the hands I am concentrating on accurate picking and am content to let the memory come along at its own speed. Of course at the age of 69 whatever one can remember is a bonus. The lessons are extremely well planned and have allowed me to slowly expand my fingering and my reading ability. So, many thanks to all who have worked to put together this excellent course.
