Hi Bob!
Nice job on the pieces. I like the slow and precise manner that you are learning these pieces. I start my pieces in the same manner. I see you are pulling up on the strings with RH while plucking. Please review RH techniques. Bradford Werner does a great job going over this:

Looking forward to your next video!

Hi Nelson,
Thank you for your comment and suggestion. I did check out the four part video and found some interesting material there. With regards to the lifting of the hand in plucking I am starting to relearn things I knew six years ago but had forgotten. The problem isn't with the i-m-a fingers but with placement of the p. I find my thumb is tucked in whereas it's obvious that pros and teachers extend the thumb to the side. this hand shape encourages the movement of the fingers from the large knuckle. I'm not sure why that is but it seems to make all the difference for me. I intend to concentrate on basic RH technique until it becomes ingrained.
Best regards,
Bob G.

Good job, Bob.
I think Nelson's advice is good. And also, as you continue working on this pieces and others, your finger dexterity will keep improving.

Hi All,
Every time I even think about recording, my tiny brain suddenly forgets how the music goes. With the camera battery just about used up, this was the best I could come up. During practice sessions I was doing much better. :cry:



Comments and suggestions are welcome.
