Thanks Leonardo.

This is off the class subject, but I got an iPad and love it. I've been using it for my sheet music, no more binders!

Just out of curiosity, how many of you are planning on doing the next level next year if it is offered? I'm pretty sure I will (assuming I pass this one!). Lately I have been pulled in several directions as I also have an interest in playing jazz guitar (electric w/ a pick, I used to play this finger style but the pick seems to work better for this sort of music). I may be getting more of an opportunity to play jazz in public and there's something in me that really likes this, even though I also am very drawn to the classical stuff. For the last month or so most of my practice time has been for jazz.

But I remember when I started the D03 course that I always felt I kind of faked my way into classical guitar and wanted to learn the "real" way like people who study it in school. And it's true, I didn't really know about damping notes, which is one of the main things I have learned this year. So I see the value of these courses.

Jeremy, I am planning on taking the D04 if it's offered. I've learned very much from the course: damping, notes higher up on th neck, are more familiar, varying the tone by playing over the sound board/the neck/closer to the bridge. Above evertyhing, I've been able to increase my repertoire.

I would also like to take another class. Although after seeing some of the pieces that are part of the Lesson 9, I'm not so sure! I definitely want a break for a few months, my existing repertoire is suffering a bit and I would like to polish and memorize a few more of the D03 songs. This class has been really good for me.
