I agree Ned, I'm finding it tricky too. At the moment I'm looking to start using p at the 'A' of the second bar but I think there might be a better option. The stretch at bar 3 is awkward too, although I initially tried to hold fingers 2 and 1 in position which isn't needed. I do like the piece though and might be tempted to post a version - I'll have to practice it then!Ned Henderson wrote:By the way, how are you all approaching the RH fingering of Dos Palomas?
Personally I am finding this one the hardest of the lot.
I enjoyed your posts Ned - your rasgueado had a nice rhythm in the Chaconne. In the Rondo, following on from Richard's observations, I noticed you also used finger 3 occasionally instead of 4 meaning an awkward jump to using 3 on the fifth string - possibly in bars 16,20,21 and 68? I find it really hard to keep to fingering, particularly under the duress of a recording, and will sometimes go into autopilot (including occasionally not alternating !) Perhaps one way round this is very slow systematic practice where you're not 'sightreading' or 'playing the piece', but are simply reinforcing the required fingering through muscle memory.
Well done to everyone on the exam results, and although it wasn't a competition between individuals or languages, it was pleasing to see Michael sharing top honours with our italian, french and spanish speaking friends! Bravo to all.
