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?
Olga, I think your playing sounds great! I have trouble with arpeggios too, I always hit the wrong base notes. I thought about your "base notes" remarks above, especially with Shiarazula Marazula and the 4 note Arpeggio pieces and I honestly don't hear anything wrong. Your rendition of Shiarazula Marazula sounds better than mine does, for sure.
When I have individual string sound issues, the first thing that I check my nails (base notes = thumb or index finger with these pieces). Maybe too long or rough edges. That's all I know at this point. Perhaps others can hear better than I
