Bea,

I agree with Harris - although I must admit your choice of cadence for the arpeggiated piece is a bit catchy! Perhaps some Caribbean influence there ... :)

Your muting on the Paganini piece was at times very good - usually when you did mute it was the low E that got the treatment. With more practice I bet you would get it all.

As for the recording quality, it is unfortunate, but it is entirely consistent with my experience using a webcam. I don't think I ever even posted a webcam-recorded lesson as a result of the warble I heard from the audio. Even my cheap digital cameras do better than my webcams (which I don't even plug in anymore). But live and learn, right? See you in lesson 6!

Bea, Congratulations! :bravo:
I'm glad that you don't skip the lesson :D
The two pieces are well played. I agree with Haris, speed will come when we play more.
See you in lesson 6 :casque:

This is so funny, why am I lefty on the video, I am right handed and I am playing right handed so how could the camera inverse my guitar, I don't get it!

Did you edit the video? If so, maybe you clicked a setting in there by accident. Or maybe the camera has a setting that can do a mirror image.

Haris - I loved it! Very musical and expressive. One of my all time favorite CG exercises.

When I was in between CG instruction, I went to learn what I could locally from a Berklee School of Music fellow who really favored jazz. He agreed to take me on, however, and teach me what he could remember of his classical studies there, and this was one of them.

Here are my lesson 5 takes. I enjoyed both these pieces, but sure took me a long time to get a couple reasonable clean takes of the Paganini.

Carl, I noticed that on the Pagininni piece you were resting your little finger on the soundboard (at lease it looked like it). Is that normal for you? Its completely OK but some purists would have you try to find your way to the strings with pima.

I think Carl didn't realize of it. I haven't seen the pinky resting on the soundboard before, I've seen it either stretch out which i do a lot or bent without touching anything.
