Archit!

Thanks! I will try to do videos for the next lesson.

And you are right about my tempo, it's a bit slow.

Hi Halil,
Don't worry about speed right now. It is far more important to play accurately than to play faster. You are doing fine.

Best regards,
Bob G.

I hope I have taken care of most, if not all, the suggestions and advices I have got till date. Feel free to express your feedback :)

Thanks ! !

I don't know why my videos have that irritating sound in the background. It is so annoying :( :( :(
Hi Archit,
Very good job on the lesson! :bravo: I notice sometimes your 'a' finger runs flat and does not arch. I also don't have as much arch on my 'a' finger and I keep working on it.

As for the hissing noise that may be interference from other motored devices running in your home that is interfering with your sound card. The sound card may not be well shielded from em interference. You may be able to pinpoint it by starting a recording and turning off running devices close to you system that records. then while listening to the recording you can hear if anything you shut off got rid of the hissing noise. I am guessing this is what you are talking about. Sorry if not :desole:

:merci: Bill

Bill !

Well played, you did really well there. I thought Lundi Matin and Rouselle were really very good. I even like the sound of your guitar. :bravo:
Regarding the 'a' finger, I really didn't get you on that. Does the finger needs to be arched or should be flat ? Please let me know.

And yes, thanks for your feedback too ! Also, I will seriously consider your suggestions on eliminating that annoying sound on my videos. You surely did suggest a good way to actually find the root cause. :merci:

:bye:

Thank you Archit! I am sorry my description of the 'a' (ring) finger was not clear. It should be arched for the individual notes we are hitting and not flat like you are barring a few strings. However, this may be a damping technique you use and I am just way off base. Sometimes mine is not arched because I am damping the string below and sometimes it's not arched because of bad habits learned in the past.

Again, thank you for your feedback and keep up the wonderful job. I look forward to our lesson 5 material as it starts to separate the bass from the treble for a richer sound. :merci:

I'll have to agree, Laertes. Of course, if one wants to shread damping the strings is not really a priority, LOL!!!

Hi Archit.

Great job on the lesson 4 videos. Your playing seems to be getting more fluid and musical with every lesson. This is very good progress.

I have a suggestion for your sound issue. If you happen to be recording on a laptop, try unplugging the power supply and record your videos using only the battery power. I used to have a Toshiba laptop that made a very similar noise to the one in your videos, but it only made the noise when the power charger was plugged in.

Hope that helps.

Bill & Ben:

You guys are both doing really great. Posture looks good and your playing is continuing to improve greatly with every lesson. Whatever work you are putting in really shows!!

Bill, one thing I noticed in your Alouette video. Measures 7 and 8 are all D notes (3 high D's and 3 low D's). I believe you read this as low D to open B string, which is common because the D and B lines are right next to each other on the staff. Other than that your performance was excellent. I only point out this minor mistake because octave jumps like this D-to-D exchange are REALLY common in music and you can benefit greatly if you learn to recognize octave jumps by-ear in this song. So it's kind of worth a second look in that regard.

Hi Bill,

Sound very good and looks very easy, you clearly know what you are doing. What happens in la cucaracha in the 10th bar? I listened to it a number of times but could not figure it out, I have the impression you play another note than in the sheet music.

And In Alouette I think you play in bar 7 and 8 D's in stead of B's.

I also found a mistake in my own recording from your recording of Cadet Rouselle, I failed to repeat the first 5 bars, so thank you for your recording.

All the best,
Erik

Hi Ben,

Your Alouette sounded nice and tempo was good. Lundi Matin, I guess the tempo is not there yet but the rest is. Well done!.
