Carl, the feedback is about you lifting all the fingers that are on the treble string when going from one bar to the next one. So for example in the beginning of the 2nd bar, you should only lift finger 2 and move it to the 6th string, while fingers 1,2 and 3 keep their fretting positions. Then for the 2nd beat move finger 1 to the 2nd string (and obviously lift fingers 3 and 4). This is also an exercise for finger independence, and note durations matching those indicated in the score isn't an issue. So always just move one finger at a time laterally.

Paul, all pieces seem very easy for you and you learn them so quickly! Did you consider to do D04 too this year? I don't think it would be too much for you.
Congratulations, everything is very nicely played!

Ah, thanks for that clarification. I simply missed it.

Thanks for the feedback HarIs, Carl & Duang.

Haris, regarding you comment about trying D04, I am actually finding D03 enough of a challenge for me and I do feel that I am learning and improving by doing D03. As a result, I think I'll wait till next year before tackling D04. Thanks for the encouragement though.

Rgds,
Paul

Thanks Bea. I have been going through all the material in the lessons, not just the test pieces. I am also working many of the exercises and scales into my daily war up.
