All the notes were there and tempo okay and I like the tone of your guitar
Occasional buzz but as I wouldn't know what notes to play in the fifth position I can't comment on too much technicals detail
Thank you for your comments on rhythm and practising tempo, I think my wife said the same when I try to dance
I try to concentrate on one particular aspect at a time hoping that it will all integrate or come together as my control and understanding hopefully improve. I love trying and am quietly chuffed that I can manage to put a few notes together and will grimly continue o practice
Hello Claude and thank you for the comments.
In my opinion, in making music with the guitar there are two main aspects to keep in mind: the rhythm and pitch. So if you are able to play the right notes at the right time you have a solid foundation for the piece, everything else tempo, phrasing, articulation, damping etc.. are only decorations. You could try to use a metronome or try clap your hands or speak out loud the rhythm and watch Delcamp examples while humming the tune to get a feel of the pulse. Remember to start slow and have fun!
