Hi Ben. Is that you? :o I almost didn't recognize you without the mustache. :P Good job working on the precision. It sounded very good. I look forward to seeing you in the finals forum. :bravo:

Hi, Bill, yes that's me. One of my daughters decided I looked old with my gray hair, so she dyed it, making me look like a munsters reject, the mustache really looked weird with the dye job, so it had to go. That mark at the end of the music you were asking about is a fermata, it just means to hold the note, see the link below for more.

Bill, just listened to your posts, they sounded really good. In regard to your question about the rest note in Villano, I actually never even noticed it until you asked about it. I don't know why it needs to be there, maybe it's some sort of proper grammar for music writing. Also, I never noticed the crescendo and decrescendo markings in the chords exercise we had to do until right when I started to record it, I guess I need to start looking more closely at the music. You did the crescendo/decrescendo well on your post. My guitar doesn't respond very well when lightly struck, making that a hard task to accomplish. Hoping to see you in the final forums, also. For me finding the correct place to post there is a challenge, could have sworn I saw the posting area before, now I can't find it.

Ben, great job on the music. :bravo: don't think you missed a note. Liked the look without the mustache!

Bill, :bravo: Your playing sounded great. I like the fact you added the intro to the Adrian Le Roy piece and the little banging of the guitar at the end.

Hi everyone,

Here are more submittals for lesson 10. I played Villano painfully slow (needs more work) and in Second bransle de poictou one finger issue in the middle. On to the exam!

Thank you Ben. I too almost missed the cres and decr when I did the piece. I am learning so much about reading music it has been very rewarding. It's like learning a new language. Thanks for all your help and encouragement. The link you provided for OnMusic.com was very useful. The challenge is when you see a symbol and you have no idea what it's called, you can't look it up. That is why these forums are great because folks like you pitch in and share in the leanring.

The music for the exam is the same one we had to post in D01 Lesson 5, so that should make practicing a little easier. But to your point, I will be looking for things I may have missed to make the piece more complete and musical.

Piece to learn for the exam from lesson 5:

Link to exam page where you must post your recording and make the required statement of authenticity and it's really you:
D01 Examen de fin de curso
http://www.guitarraclasicadelcamp.com/v ... 26&t=20946

Good think you have one lesson posted without your mustache and your new look so it' can be corroborated that it really is you. :D Your Munster crack was really fun.

When you scroll down you'll see a combo flag america/british for the english translation section.

FYI... I started using Google Chrome because it has an automatic translate option to convert the page into English from what ever language you tell it, like spanish.

Again, thanks! :merci:
Bill

Thank you Shelby. Ben has been a great resource for understanding the sheet music when anyone has had a question and he has enlightened me as the symbol at the end being a Fermanta; and I thought I had to slap the guitar. :mrgreen:

Hi Shelby, I think it all sounded very good. Yes, a little snag in the middle of poictou but it's understandable. I had a hard time playing that one without something going wrong. I had a lot of buzzing on Villano that I had to work out by pushing harder on the strings. I think I was getting lazy and not being firm enough while trying to relax and make it musical. :bravo: Bill

Thanks for all of the comments and the link. As soon as I looked up the piece for the exam and realized we already did it I also thought it would be a piece of cake, especially after all the work we've done up to this point. Until I played through it. Of all the pieces to have to do for the exam, I can't think of a more difficult one for me to do. I liked to have never got it played right for the lesson, it is still dreadfully difficult for me to do, I have creases in my chest and arm, blistered fingers, from practicing on it and I'm still no better with it than I was originally.

Bill, thanks for the comments :merci: really appreciated.

Ben, I remember the exam piece. Now I' m thinking not only do I have to record it again, I have to show my face and announce who I am on every recording. No editing...yikes! It's going to be practice,practice,practice. Maybe, I will work on memorization.

Anyone going to work on D02 over the summer?

Hi Ben, Shelby, and Bill!

Looks like we are the die hards of the D01 group. the ones left playing at lesson 10.

Everyone sounds good. I have nothing to add to what you've already said. I liked Bill's introduction addition, Bill you sound fabulous.
Ben, I appreciate how hard you seem to work at your performances. Shelby, great work again.

I had a hard time not messing up on Second bransle de poictou but I loved playing it . so pretty.
I thought the pieces were relatively easy compared to other lessons. and I love Cano curriella for our exam; I love that piece.

I am so appreciative of this forum. I think we've all learned a lot. the progressions in the music in each lesson are so subtle yet very effective in helping us progress.
i look forward to next year and I will be practicing over the summer, just not sure what I will practice yet.

Hi Everyone!

I can't believe this is the last lesson for year 1, boy did that go by fast. I want to thank everyone for their input and suggestions. I had such a great time with this. I am really excited to start year two (what am I going to do until September, LOL). I look forward to seeing everyone's final submission. Also, I really hope to see everyone in September. Have a safe and happy summer.

Bill Davis wrote:Hello everyone. Here are my posts for this lesson. Any feedback is welcomed. On Second Bransle De Poictou I didn't have a good thumb nail to sound the D string very well so it'll sound a little dull compared to the other notes. Also, I am not sure what the eyebrow symbol is for on the 24th bar at the end? I thought maybe it had to do with smacking your guitar at the end of the song like Mr. DelCamp did, so I tried to do that too. :?: :D If anyone knows what that is for, please tell me. Finally, I don't have a capo that fits my classical guitar so I did without one even though the music said to use one, Mr. DelCamp didn't have one so I just did it without one.
:merci:
