By the way, your sound/tone was good on the Gaillarde too.

Rick, it is amazing how quickly you learn all these pieces! Your Gaillarde is very nice! And the tone you produce great!

:bravo:

Thanks Haris. If you saw my post in lesson 1, you'll see that I've played a while and am re-learning, though these pieces are new. I haven't learned any of them yet with "confidence and security" as Aaron shearer says. I also have lots of time to practice and am doing more than the recommended 30 minutes a day. I liked this piece and will add it to my permanent repertoire.

Rich, I have read all your posts and heard all your pieces from my mobil phone. Today we came back home and will listen to your pieces more carefully. I am happy that you submit the lessons so quickly, so you will not lose the exams and the school year, but it is a pity you have to rush through all these pieces. If you have time after you catch up the group, I would like to hear the final versions of these pieces, otherwise I will wait you to shine in D04!

As I wrote your Gaillarde is beautiful, there are some mistakes which is normal because you could devote only a few days for. 2 observations: Although this piece is very nice without capo, the directions prof Delcamp gives us is to play it with capo. Also, in measure 20 you don't play the 1st 1/8 g-b-g. You do this in the repetition too.
A general observation is that if I can see corectly in the video, you don't do any bass damping in Gaillarde but in other pieces too.
Arpeggi, polyphonie and Schirazula Marazula are also very good!

Haris, either I'm both deaf and blind, or the video was updated after your post, but I can swear I both see and hear capo at 5th fret in Rick's Gaillarde :D

Must be the cellphone screen is too small to see my capo. :shock:

That was a good catch on that chord I missed. When I read that I thought, no way it's in there. But when I listened, no its not. I think it seemed like there was an extra beat in there or something and subconsciously left it out. :contrat:

I'm able so far to learn these pieces at a rough level pretty quickly. But I have always had an issue with getting them perfect. My intent is to take more time after the exam, do the lessons at a more leisurely pace, and repost some of these before the next class starts in September. I've also worked a lot of the exercises into my daily warmup routine.

Thanks to you and the group again for letting me crash.

Or maybe I should not postpone to buy glasses for near sight anymore :roll:

That seems difficult for me too, especially when recording..
