Theresa,
Nice work! It sure was challenging on the counting for me. I have a little trouble with my pinky and 'a' finger curling up out of the way when they are not in action. But it's kind of natural feeling. I am sure I will out grow it. One song we have to practice actually used the 'a' finger so that helps put it use.
:bravo: Bill

I made some short notes on the recordings so far in this lesson.

Regards, P
Hi Paul,
Nice work on these pieces. :bravo: I did notice in Quand you missed the 1/4 'a' note on the third bar (including the beginning bar). It sounded like you might have just grazed it but it didn't sound out. However, great job playing through with out missing a beat!
Bill :D

Hello Eddy,

..good confident playing, but I think you rushed a phrase in Bella Ciao near the end. Try it slower with the counting. It feels weird at first, but I think it is worth persevering with it..

Bill, thanks for the witty comment regarding 'short notes', indeed one or two bass notes didn't sound out properly in my performance.. not used to attempting rest stroke with my thumb, and I will try to develop this.

Regards, P

Ben Spurr wrote:Edna, the roman numeral indicates the fret where your left index finger is supposed to be. Sometimes you will see the letter C with the roman numeral (i.e, CI, CII, etc.), which indicates that you are to use your index finger to barre the strings at that fret. Actually, I've seen music written for the guitar to indicate a barre without the C, as well as oddball, apparently made up things to indicate bar chords, such as circles on every string with bold dashes in the circles. I don't know what the C stands for, I'm guessing it is the first letter of a non-english word for barre. So in the tune O Bella Ciao, Mr. Delcamp is wanting you to use your index finger to play the E note on the second fret, I'm supposing it is to get you used to moving your finger around, since it is much easier to play this tune using the everyday, ordinary Am chord.

Hello Edna,
Very nice. Quad's tempo seemed a little bit slow. Way to go the extra mile on the improv. :bravo:
I did a simple google search for 'online guitar tuner' and came up with a lot of tuners. This may help you in the mean time while you are waiting to pick up another tuner.
:merci: Bill
Will search for on-line tuners....but still I have to train my ear.. it is hard still for me to differentiate between notes, so I rely on the tuner for that.....until one day...

Hi Everyone. Got kind of busy and I haven't posted anything in a while. But I have been practicing. I have finally completed Lesson 7 and I'm already working on 8 & 9. I hope to catch up before the final !

Here are my submissions. As always, any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Also these are my first videos with my new guitar!! a Cordoba C9. I'm thinking of switching to "Hard Tension" strings just to see how it sounds and feels. I'll let you know when I change the strings so that you can see if you hear a difference in tone/volume.
