My first two pages! I couldn't tell when I should upload. Should I wait until I could play them perfectly or just wait until I could often play them pretty good but sometimes with mistakes? I choose the later, wondering if maybe I was doing something grossly wrong and you nice folks would see that and quickly correct me.

Anyway, here should be my first 5 videos, except I messed up the last three, I recorded when I wasn't playing and stopped it when I was! LOL. So I'll do those tomorrow. There's one wrong note in the second one, I played a half note D not two eighth notes.

Page 7, songs 1 and 2





Thanks for help me out!

Great job Paul! I enjoy watching my fellow classmates here.

For your question about when to start uploading, I also choose the "later" one.

I'm just a begginer, so I can't be much help. The only thing I noticed that you can improve on is by getting used to putting your left thumb behind the neck while fretting.

Looking forward for the other three videos. Keep up the good work!

Thank you! I keep on hold it wrong, I know. Halfway through I think, arch the hard, hard the hand. But I always forget! Thanks for the reminder, we'll all keep each other honest...

Hello everyone. I'm trying to get comfortable with the right hand form along with the rest stroke, but it still feel kind of awkward. Here are my vids for the lesson. The Cordes a Vide 2 felt especially tricky.






Any thoughts are welcome. Thanks!

I have the same problem. I try, but when I forget, my thumb keeps going up. I have just uploaded mine. Hopefully we can go through the entire lessons!

Very good first effort Paul. This is not an easy task. There are so many technical issues to be aware of. Definitely work to keep your thumb on the neck of the guitar rather than over the top like we usually do with steel string guitars. Watch everyone's videos and read the comments. It will most definitely help to correct errors that we encounter. Terrific to have you onboard.

Good first effort Jono. I'm curious if you are a martial artist as well.

Thank, that was very helpful. I'll get some breakfast and try and record the lost videos from yesterday, keeping the thumb position in mind.

I used to do a couple of martial arts. Nowadays I have other pursuits.

Here's page 7! I have the correct thumb position, but hey, I get retakes. I was still forgetting sometimes but the cool thing is, just know the thumb position forces the hand into an arch, which I guess is what is wanted. (So Duh, that's probably why it is correct thumb position)
