First attempt at GAILLARDE. This attempt was made without the repeats. I need to get back on the road so I will not be posting until early October.
Hi Ed, safe travels. I'm not even close to posting this yet. I recently tried Schiarazula Marazula with a capo (3rd fret). I think I get a much brighter sound with my guitar. I may post that one if I can play it without messing up the fingering. Try some of the other pieces with a capo, its kind of fun.

D03, Lesson 1, Schiarazula Marazula
Hi Charles. Nice playing, especially the Arpeggios!. I agree with Ed, you may want to watch the base string muting on Schiarazula M.

I am finding it difficult, especially with mutes that follow "D" string notes when striking the G or A strings. I don't know about you, but I found it took me a long time to see the fingering pattern in the piece.

Charles - welcome to D03 and excellent job with this lesson. You probably are doing this, but my eyes and ears are not as good as they once were, keep the focus on the damping - that is big in the Delcamp series. Again, great job.
Yes. The thumb damping is the hardest part! I’m working on it.

The thumb rests are the hardest part for me.

]Dear all,
Below are my four videos for week 3.
Arpeggios and polyphony only
I lost a nail on my m finger. While it is growing back, I was practicing both arpeggios and polyphony with i and a fingers.
I tried other pieces too, but it is still hard for me to play them refingered.

Hi Olga, I thought you played very well. I wouldn't have noticed anything out of the ordinary if you hadn't mentioned it. :bravo:

Sorry to hear about the broken nail, it's frustrating for sure. This is a common problem. If your nails normally grow pretty slowly, you may want to try a nail salon and get it fixed. They can do wonders with artificial nail (if needed) and acrylic powder (diluted with a solvent of some sort and painted over the nail). Just be sure they don't make the nail too thick.

Nice playing regardless!

Hi Lucian. The last part of the piece was definitely a handful :o. I think we all had fun with this one!

Some fun with the Capo. I like the sound with this thing on the guitar. Got a few mistakes in there but it was fun to play.

Hi Tom,
Sounds like a mandoline,
Which is I belive good, because it might be the very sound of the original performace.

I enjoyed it,
Best,
Olga
