Gabriel, Linda, Chris and David for your kind comments.
Linda/Chris - I know what you mean about these lessons. I'm wondering if I'm going to need 2 years for D05 as I did for D04. I got off to a good start as practice in the summer meant I wasn't having to sight-read the first few pieces, but I'm certainly struggling now. I'd hoped to do more this weekend, but life outside of the guitar has got in the way, albeit in a pleasant way.
David, in the Carcassi I went with the half bar, lifting the bar finger to sound the top E, but used 3 for F# and 4 for D#.
David, for both pieces. A pleasure to listen to, and very hard to offer much in the way of constructive criticism. Perhaps in the Carcassi, the end of bar 16 sounded a little hesitant. I almost want it to be louder, but that would be against the dynamic marking so perhaps I'm talking rubbish! There was a slight (understandable) gap at the start of bar 23 - understandable as it's a big shift.
As for the Barrios, after your comments earlier I was expecting some hesitant harmonics but apart from one or two slight slips they were very well executed at a good tempo.
