Evangelos, You play very well! I thought the Schiarazula was well played and the speed to which you move your a and m fingers on right hand is really nice.You have very little hesitation in playing, as you will notice I have some while I try to play a faster tempo version. I must perservere and get to the same level!

(By the way please excuse the bare leg, I do have shorts on!) :wink:

Schiarazula

These are not perfect and I will keep working on them. I have some good classmates to try to emulate.

Jack you play effortlessly as well, your schiarazula is also very nice,I dont consider the tempo speed an indication of quality playing at our level,accuracy is a better aim,so you win hands down onthis one :) I also keep my right hand as you do,I think we are a bit wrong but I am not sure,has anyone ever commented on that?(I would love to tell me that it is ok). Ned,now that I think about it it is not the angle of your right hand that gives you that trouble,at least not only that,but the way you pluck the strings,are you sure you depress them downwards before releasing?(I dont know how to explain it in a better way).

Thanks to Evangelos and Mark for your comments on my RH position. What you say makes sense. I will give this more thought and practice and see how I get on.
Here is the Schiarazula Marazula. I am trying to do the damping although I finds it very hard to do this and to keep the RH steady...

Well done Ned, although your playing is a bit tense today. I have found it difficult getting back into the swing of this after the break. :roll:
After each bass note you should not follow through to your index finger. If you roll the thumb back to prepare for the next bass note it will damp the previous note but also helps steady your hand as your thumb remains in contact with the strings longer (something I learned from D02). Its a kind of twiddling the thumbs motion.
Jack and Evangelos, I enjoyed both your posts. :bravo:
Stewart well done with your Gaillarde. I am finding getting the tempo right really hard with this piece. :bravo:

Jack, very nice performance. I can't see your damping on Schiarazula, but all sund very good. :bravo:

Ned: I can only repeat what Richard wrote. Especially in Schiarazula you have more notes (although it sounds good :) ).
very good

:merci:

I recordedSchiarazula in tempo suggested on the D03 (quarter note = 122). So I used a metronome.
Little too fast for my taste (and my ability level to :) ). What do you think?

Zdravo Goran,I liked your playing,it was fluid and your practice time showed! I didnt notice any discomfort of yours with the tempo,apart from a slight hesitation in the change of the parts,and this was noticable at the first change,although minor as I said. I like it a lot brate.

Hvala Evangelos.
Among other difficulties, there is a problem with a camera (live performance) - which has already been mentioned here. But I think this problem has every one of us (more or less) :)
:merci: :bye:

I find that change difficult at a much slower tempo! I am trying to move my 3rd finger over to the sixth string in advance of the change. What right hand fingering do you use for the eight notes?
Your metronome makes me think of someone playing the blocks just off picture:-)

well done

Hi All

Its very interesting too look at you all playing and giving tips.

I also try to study the D03. I say try, because I think I have only little time, that is, not the time proposed by mr. Delcamp for this study.
Still I think I will learn and advance, as long as I practice as much as I can. I you all don`t mind I will keep reading and studying the lessons, and try to give usefull comments, even if I am not a official student of the D03 lessons. I am afraid I will lag behind all of you at the end.

Thanks to all for participating the way Mr. Delcamp proposed so people with little time can also benefit!
:bravo: and :merci:

I tried the Schiarazula and found it very difficult, but after a while you sort of get into the rithm with your thumb. Every time I play the song when I start a practice sessions, I have trouble, but after some time it goes. I guess this is the result of not playing every day. The brain gets trained less quickly I guess...

Tomorrow I will try to start the Gaillarde.

Coen
