Good stuff. I have stopped playing. I couldn't motivate myself to keep going on an instrument that didn't feel natural for me.

It takes about 6 months of daily practice to get comfortable with guitar Larry. I've been at it for years.

Funnily enough I tell myself the same thing about piano as you tell yourself about guitar.

I think we (human beings) just like to practice the things we already have a level of comfort with.

If you don't feel driven to pick it up every day.. Well, so it goes. Do whatever makes you happy.

I've been trying to play guitar since 2004. Its just not happening. I'm actually learning alto recorder now for playing Renaissance music.

Welcome all D01 students, I'll be catching up on threads today and tomorrow evening and will update the tracker list where we list student submissions that have been reviewed and qualify for exam participation requirements.

Happy plucking!!
Hi John,
there are still no updates on the tracker, also we are already working on lesson 03 ;-) hope our submissions are well enough, so we don't have to revise old lessons :merci:

I'm late to the classes, hopefully people are still around. Anyway, I'm just about to start the very first lesson and I have a few questions about notation.

Image

a) What does 1e 2e etc. mean? My guess is that this is just counting the beats
b) I know the * means mute the string (and I saw the videos in page 1 of this thread and I'm pretty sure the 2 mean 2nd finger of the left hand, but the \ in front of the 2 mean anything?
c) What is the long, straight, diagonal line?
d) What does the i mean? Mute with the index finger of the right hand?

Hi, Paul Cezanne.

Oh, you have very active D01 this year.

a- You are right.
b- \2 means use #2 finger to damp E(1st). If there is no \, it looks just regular fingering without it. Guess that is why Maestro Delcamp put it there to separate from regular fingering.
c- Showing you what you need to damp. In this case, damp G(3rd string) with #2 finger from LH. You won't have this line for later lesson.
d- And you are right again. Damp G with i from RH at the end.


Welcome aboard!

cheers,
Ken

Hello

I'm brand new also but from what I know of classical guitar it is better to learn music notation, not tablature. This way you'll be setup for future studies, for harder pieces that are not available in tablature. The good news is that the classes introduce the notes almost one by one, with directions on which finger and which string. So you can learn musical notation while you learn guitar.
