:bravo: Halil,
Your recordings are very good.
I think the scale and the slurs sound great as well as the Greensleeves and the Waltz. My recommendation will be for the Waltz to keep on practicing it to play it more smooth.

The rhythm, those bars with the 1/8ths.. I was playing them wrong till now. Eg in 3rd bar I was playing the 2nd note 1/8 which is correct, but also the 3rd as 1/8 (and of course the 1st as 1/2)..
I dont understand this, are you talking about bar 2?
Yes, bar 2. Everything OK with the rhythm now.

Doesn't work for me. They possibly disappeared during forum maintenance.

Thank you Marko.

I go a little off topic but want to share a topic that I found very interesting: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=90866 .
We can find many useful tips and advice here on how to improve practice.

Hi Haris, thanks for that link, sure there are interesting things but practice to me all comes to the same thing, time. You can learn about all the techniques you want these days with or without a teacher, through the internet, youtube, wherever, cg doesn't have secrets. The only secret to me is time. And at the end all comes to those so mentioned 6 hours of practice daily which most of us will never have no matter how soon or late you start in your life.
Anyways, here are my submissions for this month, a bit late and it doesn't mean I have done my best or have had more time. I've actually got to hate Greensleeves, don't ask me, I am still trying to figure it out :) I did enjoy more the other two pieces, the Anonyme and Brian Borus March.
Good recording to everyone :D

Comment your videos.
Congratulations.
Valzs, lack the "appoggiatura" and "off"
Vals, falta de hacer la "apoyatura" y los "apagados.

Hi Mariano, I need to work more on dampening the notes (apagados), but what do you mean by appoggiatura, is that apoyando?

"Apagados" means dampening

Hi Bea,

Well done on your recordings/videos.

Your F Major scale is very good. One thing I like in particular is that you keep all of your fingers close to the fretboard as you play the scale which is very good. You also play the shifts very good - it is obvious you have practiced this a lot.

You Ex 30 was also good although it does need a little more work as it is sometimes hard to hear the second note (the slurred note). I personally found Ex 30 difficult however what helped for me was to play Ex 29 over and over first and before attempting Ex30. This has helped me get my pull offs cleaner.

I like your version of Greensleeves. Well done.

I also enjoyed your version of Vals. I agree with Mariano's comment about trying to dampen the bass notes although this is something that I also find difficult. But overall I enjoyed the musicality of this piece.

Cheers,
Paul

Bea, well done! One thing I could suggest is to make the notes last more, till next one begins, make later the left hand position changing.
I agree with both Mariano and Paul about dampening (in Vals) and slurred notes in Ex 30 and Vals.
I think you have improved your sound, am I right?

:bravo:
