No, you do not have to repeat lession. But it seems to me that it is written down.

Congratulations on completing your lesson 5. You played with good confidence and your fingers moved swiftly on the fretboard. That is good to see ! ! In Leccion 1, on many occasions I felt you abruptly pulled your fingers off even before the next note started which produced a gap, something like a damping effect, which is not required. Just try and hold your notes a little longer to have a continuity in the piece and I am sure your pieces will sound even better. Keep practicing ! !

Congrats on completing lesson 5. You seem to have blazed through with the first five lessons in just two months.
I liked your pieces and they all sounded musical especially Leccion 1. I just feel that if you can hold each note a bit longer before hitting the next, it will eliminate the gap between two notes and allow a continuity to your piece. That will surely add some more fluidity to your pieces. I am sure with more practice you will be able to overcome this. Nice work ! !
Trying to catch up as usual. I've been working on lessons six and seven in tandem with this, so I should have lesson six up soon, and hopefully be level with the group by lesson eight...
Lesson 05 has exposed some technical weakness in both hands. I suppose I've picked up some bad playing habits over the years (mostly self taught) but I will keep working at it and try and get everything smoothed out...
