Dear Archit,

Thank you for the feedback and advice on hand position! I am glad that you let me know early so that it will not become a bad habit for me. I will do my best to correct it in my practices. :merci:

Hullo my name is Bill
I am totally new to the guitar forum and learning classical guitar on line. I hope you don't mind, but I have one or two questions I hope you can answer.
The first is that I cannot get directly into the DO1 forum from when I sign in.
The second, and far more important is; how does the notation work on the music. In other words, what note corresponds to what string on my guitar? Also what do the numbers and letters above the music mean? I am sorry to be complete idiot, but I would really love to learn to play properly. Submitted with respect Bill

Hi Bill,

When you first get in the forum there is a kind of pinkish area that has all of the levels on it. to get into the D01 level just select "Level D01".

As far as determining what string is associated with each note, at the top right of each page of music there is a scale showing the string and if it is an open string or if you have to hold the string to get the appropriate note. The string to be played is indicated with a circle and the string number inside of it. The number above the note indicates what fret to hold down to get that note on the string indicated. The easiest example is on page 7 of D01. Page 4 of D01 explains the different symbols and strings.

Hope this helps some.

Shelby

Hullo Paola And Shelby.
I have just watched you playing the first lesson, you both seem relaxed and in control.
I have hesitated to take part in the forum because most people seem to have started in September 2013.
So I thought that I might be a bit behind. I am glad to see that you started about the same tim as me. I still need to catch up with you two but I hope I can join in once I can work out how to vidoe myself and send the vidoe to the forum. I hope this was not too long winded, but I did enjoy your playing.

My recordings for D01 lesson 01:

Better late than never, they say :) I must admit to being surprised how difficult these simple tunes are to play when trying for correct technique. I'm not used to playing with this level of concentration - e.g. trying to damp strings with specific fingers on left or right hand, while counting etc... also think these studies expose weak apoyando technique, so I know I should work on it.

Paul, I understand exactly what you mean -slowing down and doing things correctly - sorry if I am late in posting this myself, I am working on catching up as well, and my recordings are almost inaudible , so I am picking up a mic on Tuesday ( my next day off ) and will try to get a few lessons recorded so I can catch up to you. I am a few weeks back.

Rakhmat, it is not too late if you wish to join the current classes. Please see my reply to your question elsewhere for more details :arrow: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=54023&p=921344#p921364

If you wish, you can join now to get some experience, and then repeat the course in September, when you should find it easier.

The link to the relevant scores is given right at the beginning of each lesson. If you want to join in the lessons actively, you'll need to read the conditions here and register. If you don't intend to join in but just to do them by yourself, you don't need to register. Could I ask you in any case to introduce yourself here? (There are some ideas on things to say, if you need any, here). Then we'll be able to fill you in on how to use the forum.
