Stewart, your postings are great as usual.The Alegretto is smooth and played with a nice tempo, notes are clean and clear and the whole piece played with a nice relaxed feel, unlike my version. I was more relaxed without the camera as it is less hassle to set up and use, so hence I can play more often until I get an acceptable version for posting.
Richard you are right in your assessment of my submissions being somewhat fast.I was thinking that I was playing at the recommended tempos, but in doing so I tend to lose any "feeling" and it almost sounds like a midi generated recording. I really need to work on SLOWING DOWN. I've been saying saying that for a long time and really making each note sound beautiful.
Thanks Ned for your observations as well! I did notice you arpeggiated your notes and was wondering if that was intentional as well.
I also wanted to mention that I have signed up for a Guitar Ensemble class through our Continuing Education, for the next month.We'll see how the pressure of playing in front of others compares to playing in front of a video camera!
Looking forward to the next lesson
