Hello everyone!

Late starter here. I'm kind of rushing the lessons to catch up. Hopefully I'll be on track soon.

Please forgive the low volume of my recordings. I'm still experimenting about recording and I currently don't have a stand for my recorder to point the built-in mic to the guitar. :desole:

Hi Mark,

Your sounding is good and the rhythm is correct. However, you may not want to use the whole palm to damp the ringing notes, just use one finger as written in the score. Also, you may have acquired the habit from other styles of playing, but here you want to keep your left hand thumb behind the guitar neck, as in Au Clair De La Lune. And finally, be sure to observe the fermata mark in Old Mac Donald .

Hi Cao,

Thank you for your comments! I'll be working on those. Regarding the thumb habit, I have been using my left thumb on the 6th string before. I'll try avoiding this habit of mine for our classes.

Thanks again as I just recently learned what a fermata is and how to play it (still working on music theory).

:merci:

I don't know if this is the correct way to "damped the string the preceding note" but I think it is. This is what I did to CORDES A VIDE - OPEN STRING page 6. The 2nd measure after hitting the 2nd quarter note I simply put my 2nd finger to the open E string to stop it from vibrating. Then proceed to the whole note on the 3rd measure. The same thing goes to the 6th measure, after flacking the 2nd open G note I put my 2nd finger on the vibrating 3rd string to dampened the sound. If this is wrong kindly correct me.

Hi Ramon,

What you described is correct. Only one thing, you damp the previous note simultaneously with playing the next note, not before or after, i.e. the right hand finger plucks the next note, while the left hand finger at the same time damps the needed string.

Hi Mark!
you play very well. the sound is good. Maybe give your right hand (in D01 open string 1) a relax position just like in other video and of course the left hand thumb, as we know it's about the habbit so good luck! :D :D . Keep playing! :bravo:

Hi Mariana -- nice job with the recordings :bravo:

The video links were broken, but I fixed 2 of the 4 submissions and left 2 that you can fix/edit to help learn the technique :-)
You can do this be clicking the edit button on the orignal post where the videos are placed.

When using the youtube anchors {VideoID} , only place the video identifier in between the tags or else the links will be broken and classmates will be able to see the videos.

Hello Mariana,

Great playing! Your timing was on spot and played cleanly. I managed to watch the Old mac donald and Au clair de la lune, but you might want to fix the links as John advised for everyone else to see. :)

Another player ignoring the fermata mark in Old Mc Donald :D. To my ears it's begging to come to existence. If I were to play by ears I'd play that note longer without knowing if the fermata is there. The piece is an extremely popular melody...
