Greg, Sorry you can't work it in, I know it is tough to get all the practice time required to keep up with these lessons and do whatever else you may be working on.I struggle with that also,as well as your desire to be able to perform in front of others. I have also thought about private lessons, but unfortunately the cost keeps me here.These do provide some form of "pressure" which would be trying to record a good take, but it is nothing like having to get it right the one time you are in front of people! Good luck!

Scarborough Fair
Giuliani
Paganini
Novelette
Paganini (another try)

If the video is sideways, come back and look at it in a half an hour or so, I fixed it on youtube but they may still be processing it.

I also attached an MP3 of the same thing. I still struggle a lot with the Paganini, and I was kind of discouraged about this, but then I listened to my earlier post and it was even worse! Just kidding (not really), but what I should say is that I did make some improvement on this piece, even though it still has a long way to go.

Jeremy, The Novelette was very good, as was your Scarborough Fair!The Giulliani Etude definitely can do a pretzel number on the fingers, and through repetition that works itself out. I did finger it slightly differently on bar 15 than suggesterd, by doing a hinge bar with 1 finger holding Bb and F, lifting off F briefly but maintaining the Bb for it's written duration. It seemed to make a difference on my speed at this point. Your Paganini did show improvement.
I did like the quality of this video and I am impressed you are able to find an assistant to do your personal filming!

Your relaxed attitude about the whole video uploading is the way it should be with us students, as this should be foremost fun and it's nice you are able to share this experience with others close to you.

Hello All, I've enjoyed everyone's posts so far. Here are my final versions...this time around.

The Paganini was a pain in the you know what. Giuseppe's version is great. :bravo:

Hi Michael! "The Paganini was a pain in the you know what" Your "pain" was quite good as well as all the other pieces. Congrats.

Michael, great great job on the Paganini! You have a very light approach on the left hand with your thumb well behind the neck which gives you great control, I would liken it more to playing a keyboard with the left hand - every fret in the position is within reach of your fingers without your hand moving. The other pieces are all good as well, especially the beautiful Scarborough Fair.

Hi Jeremy! Thanks for your words.

Hello Goran! Thanks for your Bravo.

BTW I think that some of us are missing the Maestro Delcamp feedback on our performance. I second the motion of Goran (in another thread) concerning the petition to the teachers registered in the forum. Anyway, the comments of the partners in this forum some times are harder than the ones of the professors. They are very helpful.

I do not know whether "petition" is the right word. This is just my suggestions, and reaction to Coen's post
Elias, I agree with you that partner comments really mean a lot, but if there is a possibility that someone write a professional suggestion in any segment (of posture, hand position, holding the guitar ....) I think it would benefit for each of us. At the end of the course professionals evaluate our success, not we students.
