Wow Mike. I've been looking on that website. I thought if I were going to buy another guitar, that would be the place I'd get it from. They're guitars always look mint, no matter how old. Congratulations on your purchase!Mike Cook wrote: ↑Sat Apr 13, 2019 1:08 pmKen,
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. I totally overlooked these points in my rush to get the videos out within a week.
I'm on the road again, but I'll revisit the slurs and La Tarentela when I return on Monday. Looking forward to the exams!
btw - I have a new guitar (Elias Monet Bonne, traditional cedar top/green ebony back and sides) coming soon from the Guitar Salon International. Can't wait to start playing it! I'm hoping to be a good musician when I grow up!
Wow, Ken. I remember last summer when I just joined the Delcamp board, I asked you what microphone you were using, and you informed me that it was a very basic USB-microphone - I think you said it was attached to your iphone.
I think you nailed it Ken. And thanks for the advice on slowing down playback with YouTube. I didn’t know that could be done! I’m trying it now, have some video up soon I hope.Ken Kim wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 10:56 amLinda, I'm glad I can help you.
When you watch La Tarantela from YouTube, click setting and change play speed to 0.5 to make half slower or you can even go 0.25 also.
You will hear rhythm clearly.
This is my final version of La Tarantela and I believe I got it.
Colin, you assume correctly. I very much like your suggestion of counting and tapping w/o playing anything. That would free up some desperately needed brain capacity. Thank you. Been a while since I’ve heard anyone use “quaver” and “crochet” for eighth and quarter notes.Colin Bullock wrote: ↑Wed Apr 10, 2019 5:14 pmI assume you have counted 3 beats to the bar, each quaver (1/8 note) taking 1 beat and each crotchet (1/4 note) taking 2 beats. Try counting and tapping without playing anything.
