Hello everyone! I've finally had time to watch or listen to everyone's postings to date.Thank you to Ned, Goran, Donna and Coen for these and to everyone for the really helpful comments. Mark - until your post I thought I was doing the slurs correctly, but you are quite right, I am snapping the finger onto the adjacent string but then I'm immediately snapping it up into the air!
Ned - great early posts. I wondered if the first version of the waltz was going to be full of non-damped basses but you showed the way right from the start. You've probably figured out the rhythm corrections needed for Greensleeves, but just in case I think you were playing the A and B on bar 5 (and similar) as almost equal rather than quaver and crotchet.
Goran - very confident posts that I'm sure are helpful to all. It's clear that you are careful to follow all the instructions and as Geoff suggested, you are a model forum member.
Hi Donna - welcome! You seem very calm when playing - something I struggle with. As mentioned, you need to watch the damping in the second section of the waltz. I wonder if sometimes your LH fingers are further from the frets than they need to be when they are 'waiting'
Coen - great to see your videos and your mp3s were very accomplished - it is so much easier to comment when you can see! You've got a really good position for the camera too. I clip mine to the music stand, but then if I set it too far back to make the RH and LH visible I can't read the music properly! (PS - one more vote for you getting a YT account though
It took me quite a while to download your short slurs exercise. When it's on YT I can start watching immediately. I only use YT for these lessons and set it so that people need the link to find them, disabled comments and replies etc. )
Once more, thank you to all for making this an inspiring place to be!
