Hi, Bert Stendahl,
Thanks for your picture in picture reply. Can you explain, how you did it? You recorded two videos and used the software to edit and overlap other video to make it one final video reflecting picture in picture effect.

I'm rather unaccustomed with 2/4 I noticed, the same with crescendo and decrescendo. With no 20 I stood up then playing at some occasion. this strangely made it easier to play this at some point.

Excellent Bert! :bravo: I will use your mp3's as inspiration for my own development. It was very helpful to hear your C scale and how you address the dynamics.

Hi Alex, I have restored your post. Thanks for posting lesson 1 recordings :merci:

But there seems to be a problem with your J'ai du bon tabac. When trying to play that video, I get an error message about the video being a duplicate of a previously uploaded video. Perhaps you have uploaded that video twice into youtube? Try deleting and possibly reuploading, and then updating the link in your post.

If anyone has seen that error message before and knows the cause, please step up and tell us.

Hi classmates
I apologise for this late post for lesson 2 - I had to go away on business away from internet
I am very concerned that I have missed out on your feedback because I definitely need coaching
Bit of a rush I'm afraid
Here is my efforts for lesson 2

Hi Claude, I fixed the links for you :)

See my reply to Madeleine in Students' Corner, where I explain how to link to youtube. You can also edit (click on the pen symbol button) your own post with the videos to see what I did.

Good work Claude. Your "Tabac" example was the strongest of the lot I believe, as your hand position and timing/rhythm were very good there. I think your right hand has a good, relaxed position (I am working improving this). Your "C" scale example sounds kind of staccato so you might work on making a smoother transition between notes. I struggle with this myself and discovered that changing the angle of my fingertips as they strike the strings can make a big difference. Also I noticed your left hand fingers seemed to fly away off the fingerboard as you play. You could try experimenting with less big movements here, i.e., have an "economy" of motion in the fingers, where they don't travel so far away from the fingerboard.

Thank you Madeleine for your comments
I must confess I rushed through the scales to get posted
Yes I can see what you mean about my left hand - it looks like I am about to take flight and I will try to consciously minimise that somehow otherwise I will expect to encounter problems with complicated or very fast pieces

Thank you you Marko I will print out the student corner piece for future reference
Thanks for your patience

:merci:

Hi Steven. Your account seems to have been closed in the recent purge. Sorry about that. I am not sure how it happened, but you need to make sure you have an average of at least one post per month.

Here are my recordings for D01 02, warts and all. Keen to catch up so will revisit these later as suggested.
I will try a better camera angle next time as this doesn't show RH Thumb
