Marko,

Thank you so much for the tips r.e. the Jose Ferrer Y Esteve Exercise 9!
The timing in measures 29-32 was a bit confusing for me. This does help
clear things up.

Hi Cat, sounds great. Very melodious.
Just wanted to point out that you're playing a-m-i as the arpeggio instead of a-i-m in some bars.

Hi fellow D03 students,

Sorry for the late comments lately.
Cat, your second play though was very nice, and musical a lot better than the first.
Satyajit, you have excellent tone, especially on your melody notes!

Pentti,

Nice on on your submissions, In Waltz, I like how you had the alternating 'a,m,a' for the parts where the melody were consecutive notes. I should have done that to get everything more smooth!

George,

Very clean playing, sound is nice and clear, the tone is great too!

George and Win,
Your renditions of Valse are very good. :chitarrista:
Win, your Valse was very melodic, thoughtful and fun to listen to. You really captured the
mood of this piece.
George, your Valse sounds confident and evenly played. Something funny happens at the end
of your recording. It seems to overlap and ends twice.
Win, Your chord exercises sound good too.
:bravo:
Cat

Cat,

Thanks for the comments!
Your chords are coming along very nicely, maybe if you slow down a little, it would be even more clear.

Satay jilt,

Your chords are coming along nicely. Looks like you are having trouble with the later part of 45. I have some problems with it as well, so I end up practicing that part a little more than the others especially the last line with the i,m,a on the 1,2,4 strings I thought was pretty awkward. Nice to practice though!

Yes, Win. The 45 had some awkward bars I have to get used to. I think we need to relax the fingers to achieve independence. Or perhaps I need to adjust my position better so the wrist doesn't bend too much.

Your recordings are nice and bright with clear tones. What is your setup?

Satyajit,

My setup is just a digital camera which also happens to record video. Canon IXY 510IS, the sound is directly from the camera's internal mic. I bought a cheap tripod and just set the camera up on it. The sound is not bad if the camera is not too far away, however having the camera close means that the picture frame is not optimum, which is the reason why you often seen the top of my head cut off from the frame in many of the videos.

Hi all,

I'm almost a week late with an upload again =(

Stayajit, I could see you switching the attention from the score to the guitar and pausing at those moments slightly --- that's sort of what I was talking about when I've asked whether people prefer to learn a piece by hard or play it while looking at the notes. With unfamiliar chords I personally find it much better strategy to memorize the piece (especially such a small one), but people might have other approaches.

Catherine, for chords I would advice slowing down and using a metronome.. Rhythm is quite uneven

Win, nice and smooth chords!
