Charles, very nice.

On The EXTENSIONS, they are looking for you to record #9, I believe you recorded #6.

Loved the VALSE, especially the flow of the last section before going to Fine.

Here's my first attempt at Valse opus 59. A work in progress. .. Tempo is slow at this point, some of the fingering was tricky for me.


Well done Tom! :bravo:

First attempts at the exercises. Lot of work to do to smooth out the playing.
Ed nicely done for a first attempt.

Charles, I watched all your posts, vert nice playing.
I see your RH in Damp moving as you play and I think that is recommended to keep the hand steady and to try to move just the fingers.

Here are the two remaining exercises. The extensions exercise really highlights weakness with my index finger (cranked wrist) and pinky finger (extreme angle of fingers relative to fretboard
once again very well done.

Lucian - thank you. Very good with the damping and extensions - those were tough exercises.

Thanks Lucian! The extensions were tough. I think I'm going to keep working on those, in moderation, throughout the year (if my hand can tolerate it).

Lucian - This what I like the best about participating in the forum's lessons. Not only are you drawn to learn from your own videos, but it is also very helpful to have others make these kinds of observations. I, in fact, was not aware that I was moving my RH so much. I'll try to post another video soon with this correction.

Thank you Ed. You are right, tough exercises, and I think Tom is right too when saying that should be done throughout the year, in moderation, of course :)

Charles, I suppose that your Damp post will qualify for the purpose of taking the exam. I just was not sure if you were aware or not about the moving hand. That is the reason I made the observation so you can take action or not :)

Lucian, great job with extensions. The angle of your left hand relative to the fretboard and wrist angle looked really good. I keep turning my hand to get better leverage. I've been trying to relax my fingers while doing this exercise so my finger muscles don't tire, and in hopes it will ease finger movements (the pre-bending motions Ed mentioned previously) and to improve overall form (actually, efficiency I guess). I'm betting you'll closely match Jean Francois Delcamp's form (and perhaps faster), after you get a little more practice time.

Thank you Tom. Maybe it looked good but sounded bad :) I tried to figured out the coregraphy of the fingers first hoping the sound will follow. I need to find a way to relax the left hand and maybe then the notes will sound better.
