Paul -

What a terrific set of performances! I am sorry we didn't get to see you play, but hearing it is pretty awesome. I believe that video with audio is the ideal, but audio-only is acceptable if circumstances require it.

I admit having a hard time judging Polyphonie because your tempo was so much quicker than that of M. Delcamp. It sounded fine, but short of some extreme scrutiny with Audacity or some other audio program, I can't really comment on your timing.

Marazula was a true pleasure to hear. I am still fumbling my way through it, very very far from any consistent tempo or even having the notes committed to memory (practicing 18 separate pieces over the last week really reduces the amt of time you can spend with any single one of them!). I did detect some background noise in your recording, which is no mark against your playing, but if you want some kind of archival record of your performance for your own benefit or that of your family, you may wish to re-record it. At first it sounded like a tea kettle starting to whistle, but toward the end it sounded more like a distant, high-pitched power tool like a circular saw.

The arpeggios were very nice as well. Again, I heard some background noise - but this time it sounded more like your breathing and/or hand movements on the neck. Where is your mic placement? You might want to experiment with it.

I like Andantino as well.

Bravo! Good luck with your last year of school. What are you studying?

At page 63 Mattéo CARCASSI in measures 6-8 do we have to damp the resonances like in the 1st part? Thank you

I see no musical reason to play the second part differently than the first. I find the damping in those measures actually easier than the first part / the rest of the piece. To get the maximum benefit from this piece as a study, I would suggest to start with only 'p' damping, and only after being reasonably confident with that add 'i' damping as well. I've always found it difficult to damp with 'i' at the same time when 'm' or 'a' is playing, but the more you practice it, the easier it gets. If you find the p-i damping hard, I would suggest to first get the feel of it by not playing the melody notes (with m or a) at all, just the p-i bass with damping.

I cant see Paul's submission on my smartphone on tapatalk. When I click on the link for his recordings, it says I am not authorized too see it. I wondered if it is not supported on tapatalk. I have hardly time too sit at the computer and I quickly got used to tapatalk.

Bea, I'm sorry that you can't see my submissions. I've just logged into tapatalk on my iPad and I'm seeing the same message as you (You are not authorised to download this attachment). Perhaps I've uploaded these wrong? :( Does anyone know if I am supposed to set some sort of permissions or something?

With that said, you're not missing out on much but if you like I can sing them to you : "Da, Dum, Da, Dee, Doo, Dee Da" :lol: :lol:

When I click on the paul's link on tapatalk, tapatalk redirect me to internet explorer to Delcamp forum start page. On this page It says : "..not autorized to see ..". Then I click Login button on forum page, login with usrname and password and click on check box "Log me on automatically each visit" .
My smartphone ask to remember my login data, I say YES. Then I close my internet explorer and then when i again click Paul's link on tapatalk, tapatalk redirect me on internet explorer and download Paul's mp3 file on my Smartphone.

Has anyone gotten a handle on the trills (measures 2 and 18) used in the Gaillarde? I'm finding the open string trill in measure 18
impossible to play and I'm not sure I'm playing the measure two trill right either.

On Gaillarde, for mesure 2 I use the fingering recomended like the second finger for G, the fourth finger for high A and the first finger for F sharp. Then for measure 18, I use fingers 3,4 for D and B and fingers 1,2 for A and C sharp as recommended; after that I use finger 3 for D and finger 2 for F#. Then I start measure 19 with finger 4 for the D. After writing all of this I can conclude I follow delcamp's fingering. :) what are you finding difficult specifically?

Sorry Halil, I realized you talk about open string, do you refer to the E on first string?
