Colin,
In exercise #20, it does not sound like the notes were damped. In his clip, monsieur Delcamp started by having the fingers rest on the corresponding strings. After each finger hit a note, it quickly returned to the starting position. To me, it felt like a very awkward way to play, but maybe that the point of the lesson?

Thanks Chu, I will listen to that. I was damping but trying to give each note it's full value by returning the playing finger as the next note started. It felt less awkward than bringing the finger/thumb straight back, almost like a rocking motion. As you say, perhaps the lesson point was to get the finger back straight away, I'll get the headphones out and listen to the demo again.

CScale - Just a couple of tips. 1-Try and play the notes with your fretting finger closer to the fret. This will reduce buz with reduced finger pressure. If you work on this now, it becomes second nature. 2- Remember that not all the notes are quarter notes. There are half notes as well. Make sure you hold the notes for their full duration. Also I did not really hear the crescendo/decrescendo.
Ex20 - Sounded good.
Un Souris Verte - It seems you are overpowering your microphone. Try and play the strings a little less aggressively or reduce the gain on your mic to avoid distortion. As for the notes, just a general comment to work on your damping with your thumb as indicated in the music.
J'ai du bon tabac - Sounded good. Keep it up.
Good Work overall. Keep it up.

CScale - Same comment as Zhihao. Remember that all notes are not quarter notes. There are half notes as well. Also I did not really hear the crescendo/decrescendo.
Ex20 - Sounded good.
Un Souris Verte - Sounded good. :)
J'ai du bon tabac - Just a general comment to make sure you hold the notes for their full values, otherwise it sounds like you are playing Staccato.
It looks like you are having a good time with the practice. Keep it up!

CScale - Same comment as Zhihao. Remember that all notes are not quarter notes. There are half notes as well. I did hear your crescendo/decrescendo.
Une souris verte - You just need to work on damping that bass string so it does not rumble over the proceeding notes. Sounded good though.
J'ai du bon tabac - Sounded good!
Ex20 - Sounded fine! Good Job.
It's the player, not the guitar...
But, the guitar helps!!!

Hi - struggling though these pieces - finding it difficult so playing very slowly - but am enjoying it and notice my fingering improving! All feedback welcome. Thanks

Sounds better than my 1st attempts. Nice tone and even. Speed will come.
Couple of small points:
C scale is written as an im exercise, but I think I will try it as p as well.
In Tabac your LH fingers could be a little closer to the 3rd fret.
I haven't yet posted lesson 03, so you're not far behind, keep up the good work.

Hi all,

Here's my recorded video for second lesson, still a little bit unused to play the guitar.

Any advice will be appreciated, thank you!

Hi Loo,

Just in case you didn't notice, Exercise 20 is also one of the mandatory recordings for this lesson, if you want this lesson to count for the requirements of the final exam.

Best Wishes,

Marko

Very good, Warley!

You don't have to ask for permission to move onto the next lesson. You can do so whenever you have posted the required recordings.

Best Regards,
Marko
