Thank you Bill and Dave. It is a challenge, but you can overcome it. The more practice I put in, the easier it is becoming. You should have seen the bloopers, guitar smashing time. Of course that would be sacrilege...so no guitars were harmed

Bill,
I noticed this morning when I was preparing my video for export the default setting was wide screen, which chopped off the bottom of the video. I changed it to standard, which seemed to have solved the problem.

Juan, Bill and David,

Thanks for the comments. I'm still working on the other two songs, hopefully I'll be able to get them up soon.

@ Juan

I haven't yet started practicing lesson 3 and I happened to hear 'Chemin' played by you. I think it was played really well as thought it was an official video. Great ! I like the way you hold your guitar, your hands and wrist seem perfect to me. I am still struggling with my guitar and hand position. Anyways nice work !

@ Ben

I have been observing from lesson 01 that you are always the first one(or at least one of the first three) to post the pieces and trust me in such little time you have been posting the most accurate, clean and crisp(if I may use these words) pieces, which, in my opinion, is not easy. Hats off to you !

Hi Ben,
Thanks for the idea. I use an iPad with Google YouTube capture. I will double check for that setting.

Thanks again!
Bill

Switching between the thumb and other fingers is definitely a challenge in these pieces.

Juan, your playing sounds good. Pretty decent tone. Be careful about moving your right hand back and forth so much when switching
between the P and IMA fingers. Check out how some of the masters position their right hand and maybe emulate
a position that works best for you. Also, with your left hand you could try to keep your wrist straighter and curl your fingers a bit more. It
should put less strain on the wrist.

Ben, good job. One suggestion would be to work on producing a less plucky tone. It's something I struggle with myself but when I focus on
it my tone definitely improves. In fact I'll have to work on it with the pieces from lesson 3.

Anyway, just some constructive criticism guys. All the best... :casque:

Erik, you did very well with these. The way you played si si re confirms that I did a sloppy job. You play very clean and precise. Perfect posture. I also physically like your guitar.

Juan,

Thank you for your comments. The guitar is an alhambra 1c with a German spruce top. I don't know too much about guitars, searching around I found quite a number of positive remarks for this one, and the "thetruthabouttheguitar" website eventually made me decide to buy this guitar. For now I am very happy, ignorance is bliss here..

I listened again to your etroit chemin and sirere and I don't think sirere is a sloppy job (nor is etroit). You have a different posture in sirere, which looks to me a bit less comfortable compared to etroit but you'll be the judge of that. I do think i count a few errors in the length of half and 3/4 notes in the middle of both pieces: halves are played as quarters, and 3/4ths as halves, but that is about it.

Erik
