Hi Carl,

I think I remember reading somewhere on this forum that that notifications had to be turned off because the site was getting spammed as a result.

You are also not alone in not practicing much over the Christmas holiday. You can't do everything, and it's probably best to make the most of family being together. Perhaps we can share the New Year's resolution to practice more ;-)

Hi Carl, no worries about getting the pieces perfect, I was joking, mine won't be perfect either, in fact i haven't played the pieces in about four days. I have been playing different exercises, scales, etc.
I don't mind not to have notifications from the forum, I basically check it daily or every two days just to see if someone has posted something. I have been busy with my family over the holidays and that's why I haven't recorded.
I have enjoyed learning the pieces, I don't see much new in them to learn but it is good that they aren't really as hard as soleares, malaguena, etc. Even the danse polonaise I find it very hard to play, I won't be able to play that piece at the speed that Mr. Delcamp does, I hope someday I will but I won't for now, so I am glad he didn't ask us to record that piece, I would have recorded it anyways but it would sound different compared to his version.

Finally I was left alone at home to record :D
The Meissonnier piece seems so long, I make a couple of mistakes, not sure, some buzzing here and there, maybe pressing a wrong note or not well the string.
In Allegretto I make a mistake towards the end too.
Tell me how can i make playing better.
Thanks for watching and good luck to everybody!

Congrats for becoming the first one to submit. It's been lazy weeks for me too!
On the buzzing sound, it could be because of LH or RH. I also have this problem every now and then, especially on new finger patterns/movement. The way I fix it is to practice that part of section (very short section) very slowly over and over. From there I will notice the problem and able to rectify it. When the problem is because of the speed that I can not achieve, then I will reduce the tempo.

William :merci: for your advice, I need to practice slowly, especially that part with the pinky doing the D#, that part was a bit hard same as the bar before the last one where you have to stretch the pinky separating from the anular to do the B on the fourth string.
:bravo: for your pieces, nice sound and playing. Regarding Andante, I would play it at a slower tempo since it is an andante. It seemed fast to me compared to Mr. Delcamp's playing, I don't know what others have to say about this, so sorry if I am not right here.

Beatriz - You're still making noticeable staccato sounds, and I think I know what's the cause this time around. You tend to lift your LH fingers off the fretboard as soon as you hit a note, thus muting it. So unless there's a muting symbol in place, try to hold the note for as long as possible before lifting your LH finger off the fretboard. Additionally, you're much more relaxed than at the start of the course, keep it up!

William - No comments on technicalities as you've gotten that bit down right. If anything I think you could have touched the pieces up with some rubato/vibrato.

:bravo: Stefan. Beautiful both pieces :!: I loved your Andante, I noticed scratching sounds when moving your right hand up and down but your playing was very very nice :D

Is the dog real?

The dog is real yes. Goran asked me the same thing :D He tends to sit next to me whenever I play.

Thanks for the feedback Bea and William!

That's very friendly of him! I love the sound of your guitar, Stefan! Very nice playing too (apart from the distracting business with the right hand, that Bea mentioned of) :bravo:
