Hi everybody! :) My lap failed :cry: and I´m looking for some other alternatives, I used an MP3 recorder and tried this kind of work in progress just in order not to have a lag. There are some very obvious fails :desole: in this valse op. 11 No. 9. I hope to remedy them before the deadline for this second course. This is the video [media]https://youtu.be/8D2NfdYMXI0[/media].

C&C not so agressive are very appreciated, well, the agressive too! :merci: :merci: :bye:

Hi friends!!! thank you very much for your comments. Jeremy, i like your sound. Do you play by reading music (not remembering the piece)? A great ability!!! Elias, I think that you play well, but probably you need a little more study for playing them perfectly. Jack, your Capriccio is very well in my opinion. Also the other pieces are OK, the lesson isn't easy to do... Giuseppe, your sick tune is perfect!!!
:bye:

I have been reading the pieces because I haven't had time to memorize them - however, usually when I play in public I only play things I have memorized. I tried playing the S.L Weiss Passacaglia in Church one time reading from the music and it didn't go so well! Pieces that stay in the lower positions are easier to play while reading.

I do feel like this would be a good skill to have because it would greatly expand my repertoire - but I'm not quite there yet.

I took a lesson from a very high-level guitarist one time and he told me "don't look at your fingers". This was some of the best advice I ever got. However, sometimes you must look when jumping to a position high on the fingerboard.

Thanks for all the tremendous feedback! Obviously I need to work on the Tarrega Andantino more, the tempo I was doing better until the video camera turned on!As far as my wrong notes I will pay closer attention to the music and my Sick tune is healing and should be healthy by next posting :wink:
Giussepi, I love your Sick Tune. But I love the sound of renaissance music! You played it the way I want to play it!
Thanks for the help!

Another try at The Sick Tune, still not perfect but a little better.

Hi all
I am not really doing the D04, but the D03, however, sometimes you hear a piece and realize you HAVE to learn it, if you can. This was the case for this Losy-Capriccio.
I just love the flow of notes in this piece.
I experimented a lot with damping on this piece, the technique is relatively new to me. I play allmost everything a-i or i-m. I only play with p if I have to damp the previous note.
This was a difficult piece to learn for me -and still not done- but I think my future playing will benefit.
I recorded it with a capo on the 5th fret, I just love playing it that way.
It still needs improvement, but after so much studying this piece, I like to share it with you all to get some constructive critisisms.

Well, here it goes:

I'm responding to posts in reverse order...

Coen--I enjoyed your Losy. (Is it Losy or Logy?) It's obvious that you love the piece and I think that the capo at the 5th improves the effect.

Jack--nice to see you also are going for the D04. The sick tune is coming along nicely. The Waltz sounds great (given the few misread notes that Jeremy noted). I noticed that on the Waltz your thumb tone is rather "clicky." Your thumb tone is quite nice on the Losy Cappricio.

Elias--nice job on the Carcassi Waltz. It sounds like you are very close to a good performance of it. The Cappricio is coming along nicely too.

Giuseppe--very enjoyable sick tune--sounds healthy to me! :casque:

Jeremy--I realize that it's less desirable to include everything in one long post but it's more honest! Nice job on all the pieces. From your subsequent posts it seems that you're aware of the mistakes etc. I enjoy your tone and the lovely sound of your instrument.

Here's my Carcassi Valse

Coen, your Losy Capriccio is a thing of beauty! The piecs flows uninterrupted, and the 5th fret capo takes it back about 5 centuries - just beautiful!
