Hi everyone,

In Page 41, ACCOMPAGNEMENT DE BLUES instead of tempo, we have 2 eighth notes = 1 quartet and 1 eighth note as triplet.

Anyone can give an explanation, what does that mean?

Thank you

Kushtrim

It means to play in swing rhythm . If you watch the video from delcamp, you should get it.

Very very good Kushtrim. You are inspiring me to keep going and not quit. Your damping is very good too. Only thing I noticed is that on "Menuet" sometimes I do not hear all the bass notes beings struck.

:bravo:

t means to play in swing rhythm
Just to be clear, it actually is more a shuffle rhythm then swing. But the two are very similar. You can read up on this here: http://www.studybass.com/lessons/rhythm ... g-rhythms/

Zafar

Your piece sounds good. I like that you move your RH around. Try to maintain the relative angle between your hand and the string like the Professor did in his clip.

Kushtrim

Very good over all. I agree with Madeleine, some of the bass notes in the second piece are barely audible. In the last piece, for beats consist of a long and a short note (opposing to those consists of 3 short notes), to me it sounds like the duration of the long note is a little bit too long.

My submissions for this month. Please give advices.
Just watched my clips and found that there was no variation in the dynamic. They sound pretty much like my 2 yrs old banging on her toy xylophone!

Hi all,
with this one I had some problem with the a finger in the beginning, but it became easier after some practice. I have also followed the thread about right hand tech provided by Madeleine, unfortunately it didn't provided much info about right hand thumb tech.

Zafar,

Thank you for your kind compliments. About measure 13 in the exam piece, I see it the same way you do. LH pinky on A string at the 4th fret (C#), RH thumb for the C# and ring finger for E. I think the lower box is there because the pink will need to reach a little bit then hold the node for the whole measure. No idea what the upper box is for.

Bert,

A few off-beats here and there, but all the notes are loud and clear. Good work.

The thing about these technique thread is that there usually are too many "experts" with different views. Personally, I try my best to imitate monsieur Delcamp's clips.
