Just wanted to say that despite the very few mistakes that some are making (hardly noticeable to me) you folks are very inspiring to me. I've started into the lessons a little late and been severely challenged by poor internet service, weather related overwork, just trying to get up to speed learning to play correctly and other technical (recording) problems. But you are giving me the inspiration to keep going on even if I don't completely catch up.

You are all sounding good and I thank you for your efforts. Bare in mind that you are not just doing this for yourself but you are helping others whether you know it or not.

Thanks,
Dale
Welcome Dale and thank you for your comments. It is nice to know that our work and efforts here are being appreciated by others. This too is very inspiring! Keep at it and it will come. Even in the most trying of lessons I remember my comrades here and they inspire me to keep going too.

Here are my recordings for lesson 05.
Had some issues with Polyphonie due to thumb nail, but figured out how to avoid nail catching on the string.

Thanks.

Dale, thank you for taking some time to listen to my recordings and give your comments, I appreciate it considering that most of the students are now going through lesson 7.

Regards!

My submissions this week are a bit sloppy.
I've been slacking off.
I will drag myself to become a great guitarist kicking and screaming.
I will improve.

Criticism is Welcome.

Hi all,
Not sure if anyone reading this far back, but am I supposed to be muting the strings with my thumb or fretting hand in the Polyphonie excercises? M. Delcamp doesn't seem to mute with his picking hand, unless it is very subtle.
Just not sure... thanks
Ben

Hi Colin, Thanks for your help.
So with some of the notes, we have to mute the bass string and the same time that we pick? For example, in bars 4 and 5 in Polyphonie 1, you pluck the bottom E in bar 4, and then at the start of bar 5 mute the bottom E and pluck the A.
I can manage it, but it feels clumsy and therefore perhaps not the correct technique. I have to kind of bend my thumb in order to use the knuckle closest to the nail to mute.
Am I doing it right and it just feels clumsy, or is this another way it can be done?
I found this video, what do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0LW-SWspQE
Thanks
Ben

You don't need to mute at exactly the same time, although some advanced players do.
The way most of us do it at this level is play E bar 4, play A bar 5 but immediately return the thumb to the E string to mute. Allowing E to ring for even a quarter note isn't a problem.

By the way, do remember it is Poly #2 that you need to post
