I would let the high e ring until the end of the measure, unless I wanted to emphasize the b note for some reason, for example to make measures 1 and 2 sound different from each other.Haris Karachristianidis wrote:Should we damp e when we play the exact next note b or when the rest sign comes at the beginning of next measure? (that is what I did exept the times you mention.)
That is not strange because I liked very much Valse and I did not like the other two . The most difficult in Valse is to do the dampings and the length. I did not do dampings too before Delcamp lessons.CarlWestman wrote:Carulli's valse - such a beautiful yet melancholy piece!! Thanks for posting that. I wish I had time to really learn it. You did a such a great job with it - maybe better than the other two! And it's so long, compared to what we're used to. Kudos.
Thanks for your comments Carl. I think I will try recording again but I'm not going to upload. Just to see my own progress.CarlWestman wrote:Duang,
Good job on posting - and posting early. Are you going to upload again, or are you going to move on to lesson 6? Apart from the comments already provided, I would suggest trying to increase your tempo to be closer to the indicated range. Also, it would be nice to be able to see your left hand in the Carulli piece.
Haris, I agree with Carl with Carulli's valse. I wish I had time too. Longing for School's holidays so I could have more timeCarlWestman wrote:Haris,

That is my point, the different tone and the easiness of playing when you have the right length and shape and you have got used to, not the stronger projection. Nails that catch means that maybe they are longer than they should, or they have not the right shape, eg curved downwards or maybe you have not the correct angle to the strings. My nails catch too if they get longer (normally they are not longer than my fingertips).CarlWestman wrote: w/r/t nails it's ironic you mention it, because late in my practice time, near the point of recording, I had some nails, but was constantly catching them on the strings as I moved around. After some time trying to overcome that, I decided to just trim them, and the problem went away. Having said that, I have noticed that on my Rover, a little bit of nail goes a long way in getting the small, solid top to resonate nicely and project well. Most of the time I'm playing my full-scale guitar in front of a mic just several inches away, so strong projection isn't critical. I do recognize that nails give a different tone.
Again, many thanks for feedback.
Good decision!I will see if I can do lesson 6 with a little growth in my RH nails, and see how that goes.
