Well, folks. Here's my posts so far. Hope to post the 4 Note Arpeggio piece tonight or tomorrow. Not so sure about Schiarazula Marazula, probably this weekend. Its a tough one.
Tom very well done, like usually.
:bravo:
Thanks Lucian. Glad to hear your thumb has healed up.

Tom - I liked how you kept your fingers moving from the 11th to 12th measures, not waiting for your fingers to land on the strings, thereby keeping the rhythm intact. Well done.

Thanks Ed. I got the impression that we are supposed to basically form chords (all fingers land at the same time ) when playing these pieces. I found it easier to do it this way for some reason.

Hello Olga! Your playing sounds very smooth. When I first saw the "SCHIARAZULA MARAZULA" I thought it looked easy. Boy was I wrong! I'm finding the fingering really tough. And posting a portion of the piece is something I've never thought of doing (you will need to post the whole thing to get credit, but posting parts as you work through it seems like a good idea).

One suggestion: change the position of your camera phone or whatever you are using so we can see both hands. I could not tell for sure but I think you may have been playing free stroke rather than rest strokes at time. Great start!
Is the melody supposed to be played with rest strokes? The Decamp video looks like he is using free strokes to me. Maybe a moderator can clarify this point.

Hi Charles, I was referring to the Polyphony pieces. I could have been mistaken, it was hard to see for sure.

Hello D03 students, glad to see some new fingers as well as familiar ones.
I'll be catching up on your videos over next few days and will update the tracker list where we list student submissions that have been reviewed and qualify for the exam requirements.
Hope you will all enjoy this year’s study sessions.

The base notes are played rest strokes in the Schiarazula Marazula, and Andantino op. 59.

Dear all,
Thank you for your videos and for your presence, it is a big pleasure for me to view, listen and actually learn from you.
And for your comments. They make me play better.
last week (week 2) I was concentrating on playing my arpeggios with more legato. I still does not work as I want it, but here are my attempts.
I also noticed that my base notes are too strong and too coarse. I wonder if I can get any advice on it?

- page 45 Ferdinand CARULLI (1770-1841) ARPEGGI
Carulli arpeggio de tre notes

- page 45 Ferdinand CARULLI (1770-1841) ARPEGGI
Carulli arpeggio de quatro notes
https://youtu.be/LqrfkN_RL2g

Delcamp D03 lesson 1 week 2 MAINERIO Shiarazula Marazula.
My first attempt to play the whole piece.
But very slow. I noticed that the music changes dramatically with speed. The piece that sounds might and playful when played in high speed, sounds dark and even aggressive when played in slow speed.

Thank you!
Olga

Dear Ed,
Thank you for your videos,
I love your arpeggios, they sound nice and smooth.
And I love the bright sound of your guitar.
I wonder if it would be possible to add some light to make your fingers more visible?

Best,
Olga

Olga - great improvement on all pieces. For MARAZULA, I liked how you pivoted on the E throughout sections A and C. I agree when this is played slow it is dark and also seems like it has a dum-dum-dum-dum beat which melodically sounds boring. I much prefer the sound of GAILLARDE in this set of lessons.

Hi Tom,
I like your first attempt very much.
And I like how quiet and relaxed is your left hand.
Thank you!
Olga
