Hi Haris
Just within two weeks and you did the recording! I am still figure around the first four bars of Packington's Pound. I like your tone but as Mr Delcamp says that we could avoid monotony by playing on different parts of strings to get different tone colour.
I like your Salteren, the dynamic change is great!
:bravo:

Thank you Bea!
In bars 17 to 25 I mute E in sixth string with left hand finger 1. As I press the bass Si my tip of the finger touches free E.

Thank you Duang!
I play in different parts of strings to get different tone color. I start over the hole, in bars 17 to 25 I play nearer to the bridge, from 33 to 40 near the frets and then again closer to the hole. I would not like to add more coloring to that.
I liked this piece a lot (except the middle part), so I learned it quickly. Also some recordings in youtube like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1BNrQo ... _g&index=2 helped me understand the structure of the piece. In this version, which I believe is close to the original and close to this periods playing style, there is no coloring.

Ok, Haris, that's what I thought you could be doing after I saw delcamp' s video again. I think he mutes those notes with the left hand too.

Haris - GREAT job on Packington's Pound. Such great tone and recording quality ... very impressive. The tempo is slower than that of M. Delcamp, but if it's cleaner that way, so much the better. There were a couple spots early on in the recording where your bass could be stronger, but these are all very minor things.

On the strumming, you varied it nicely, but I thought I could detect a small change in the strum pattern around 11 or 12 seconds in. It sounded fine but it might not be what was intended.

I'm still trying to learn Packington's Pound - some of the string of 16th notes are a bit fast for me, and I need to be able to transition out of them better, such as to that G/D at the start of measure 14. It's tricky because a) it's my pinky - always a weak point, and b) the pinky is raised immediately prior for the C note, so you have to get it down very quickly after that, and it's not so easy.

Carl, thank you for comments!
On the strumming the change in strum pattern was intended, prof. Delcamp plays this pattern in his video.

Duang, congratulations! Both Saltaren and Packington's Pound are very good! Very nicely played!

Only one observation: In bars 2, 4, 10, 36, 44 Si is in the melody line and in my opinion should be distinguished from the other notes of the bar (Sol#, Mi) which belong to the bass line. So I think the 2 bass line notes should not be as loud as the melody line. If you agree with my opinion, this is very easy to fix.

Congratulations again!

:bravo:

Thank you so much Haris for pointing out about the melody. I have always not concentrated on these things which would make the piece more musical!
Duang :D

I too have been busy with holiday and travel to see relatives. I will probably post a little late - I try to record when no one else is home, and right now we have a full house! I may even record a bit past the posting of lesson 5 ... my son goes back to school next Thursday, and my daughter a day or two later.

Still, I'm getting good practice in here and there, and have returned to practicing the piece with headphones on, listening to M. Delcamp play. It's a balancing act between being able to hear myself and hear the example being played through the headphones. I'm playing it at 90% speed and keeping up fairly well, closing in on getting that difficult & fast passage clean and at speed (well, 10% slower but that's pretty good for me).

I suppose my other comment on my progress thus far is that I find it very hard to finger the A chord for Saltaren as indicated. Physically - not a matter of speed or dexterity. So I am considering just going with fingers 2, 3, and 4 there instead of 1, 2, and 3.

Duang, I'll check out your video shortly!
