Hi, Classmates,
I'm resubmitting my study assignment "FAIS DODO,COLAS MON P'TIT FRERE". I did practice to improve tempo and Rhythm.Slightly better than previous effort. :)

Jose,

The "II" refers to the position of the left hand and not the fingering. At that marking, you need to move your left hand up a fret or so (by repositioning your thumb behind the neck), so your pinky can comfortably hit the high A note. At the beginning, my LH thumb is between the 1st and 2nd frets (my "I" position). At that marking, I'll move my thumb to between the 2nd and 3rd fret (my "II" position), then move it back to "I" position after hitting the G note.

Hi Chu Bun:
Looking at page 4 of the volume D01 PDF file, it states that the "1, 2 ,3 and 4" numbers represent "fingers of the left hand", indicating which finger must be used to press on the fret to play the related note. That's where I got confused, because for pressing on the 3rd fret I normally use finger 3 (ring finger).
This is also stated on page 29 of the "Pascual Roch - A modern method for the guitar" book, volume 1, which I believe you can find here: http://www.guitareclassiquedelcamp.com/ ... itare.html.

Thanks fro the feedback!

A number, for example number one, when written in different ways has different meaning

1: index finger on the LH (or RH if for lefty like the professor)
①: the first string (high E)
I: fret where "1" finger makes a barre.

At the II position, the "1" finger would make a bar on the 2nd fret. So the "2" would naturally falls on the 3rd fret, or G on ①.

Zafar,

An improvement from that last clip. keep going at it. On measure 8, the duration of the first note seems to short. With the dot the first B should take three counts (1-2-3), then C# two counts (4-5), and next B one count (6).

I see now that we were referring to different "two" symbols, but it's now clear. To be honest, I had not noticed the "II" symbol related to the LH position, which is really helpful to avoid mistakes like the one I had.

By the way, you're performing quite well in your recordings for this lesson!

Regards!
