Hi William,

Nice playing and solid technique. Maybe try adding some vibrato to spice things up.

Good execution both of you. Can't comment on any technicalities, legato is clearly present, I think this is as good as us D02 players get honestly :D

Very nice listening to your recordings :casque: William and Halil.

Halil, at what tempo did you play Andantino?

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I think I hit two wrong notes in the second part of adantino 8)

As far as tempo goes, I'm not sure. I never use a metronome. I just watched the video lesson and saw that it needed to be played slowly.

I heard it, but that is no reason that the performance does not sound good. :wink:

As far as tempo goes, I'm not sure. I never use a metronome. I just watched the video lesson and saw that it needed to be played slowly.
I started playing along with the Delcamp recording - slowing it down a little, with the hope of building up speed over practice time. At 70-80% speed, it seems pretty clear to me that the Delcamp recording does not keep uniform tempo - rather, he starts slowly and then builds up speed, then slows again, etc. It seems obviously intentional, but it does make it difficult to play it straight alongside his playing. To play with him, I'd have to copy his tempo variations, and that somehow doesn't seem appropriate. I would prefer to learn it as written first, and then, if I feel moved, give it my own twist.

Nice job, both of you. William, I noticed how nice your cedar-topped Yamaha sounds. I have been battling low humidity issues (<20%) here with much lesser (but loved and treasured) guitars and wish solid-tops were easier to take care of in climates with highly variable humidity. They require much care and attention, so it would be a commitment to get one like that, at least, if I wanted it to stay in good shape.

Thanks everyone for your feedback.
Carl, your approach is similar to mine in terms of tempo. At this level I prefer to concentrate more on playing it right rather than speed. No doubt i have to play at certain expected tempo but if I think it is too fast for me to follow I'd slow down.

I can't imagine the efforts needed to maintain guitar in places with variable humidity. For me I did not pay particular attention. Humidity is quite high in Singapore but its quite the same I think all year round. I just make sure I keep it in dry and well ventilated space. I've had it for a year and I dont see any noticeable difference.

:bravo: Stefan, it sounds great! :casque:

I like how you play the Andantino in terms of tempo (fast compared to delcamp and steady) and the dynamics you used makes it attractive to listen. In my opinion doing it very slow doesn't call my attention. When trying to play it as slow as delcamp did in some parts, I kind of fall asleep while playing :)

Thanks, I haven't really drawn a comparison in regards to JFD's tempo, I thought he plays it as 'fast' as I do.
