Any advice on crescendo/decrescendo? I feel like I have 3 volumes that I work up and down so it's not nearly as smooth as the teacher's. Anyone found anything that helped you get better at this?

Same problem here. I think it is just practice.

I play vertically because of back and joint pain, plus my goal is to someday play a Brahms guitar like Paul Galbraith.

Nicely done Aaron. I'm guessing SI SI RE got the best of you as you let out a big sigh at the end and I thought perhaps your camera was in jeopardy! :shock:

There was usually at least one piece every lesson that I would struggle with. :evil: You're doing great. :D

The end is in sight and I feel you can make it in time. :contrat:

Nicely done Aaron! One small comment, on "Good Morning to All" you need to watch your rhythm. The eighth notes, (the ones with the lines connecting the tops, the first two G's are eight notes) should have the same duration.

The problem here is that you know the song already, it's Happy Birthday. But the song that's written is simpler than that. It's just something to watch out for. This will come back again, we're playing tunes we know but they're written differently.

Still loving the smile!

It's taken me awhile. Leccion 5a really got to me. I still don't have it at tempo but I need to move forward, at least to maintain some sanity!

I also took about a week or more off. I hurt my back. (Tying my shoe!) But the spot that hurt was the spot that often hurt when I was done practicing. So I read up on it a lot, here on delcamp, and I'm trying something new. I went vertical with the guitar. (See https://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/ ... 1&t=125249 if you want to.)

But here are my submissions:
Impressive posture. Me to strugle with posture. Anyway,well play.

TUAN!!!

I thought we lost you my friend. :shock:

Please do try and continue. Anyone playing a Matsuoka guitar needs to be here with us. Great job on your pieces. :casque:

I look forward to your lesson 4 submissions.

Just wonderful submissions Tuan! You left hand thumb position is great and you are alternating fingers properly. Well done. There was one wrong note in Lo Nous (2nd phrase, if you can't find it just ask, I'll listen again with the music in front of me) but I wouldn't worry about it. My problem when I played was buzzes all over the place, you really tamed them!

Don't despair here. The practice is worth it. I only mention this because I too got frustrated. Lesson 4 is pretty difficult, at least it was for me, but when you make it lesson 5 the music really starts to pay off. (It doesn't get easier, but in Lesson 5 it finally sounds like "real" music.)

I sometimes force myself to practice, but usually I don't. What work for me is a consistent practice time. As soon as my work day is done I grab the guitar and set a timer. But, what also really helps is cheat days. If I'm not feeling it, I take a day off. And that's ok too.

Thanks! I would strongly recommend that you find a solution to any physical struggles. It doesn't get better over time. There are many devices on the market which let you hold the guitar in the traditional angle without having to contort your body.

In my case, my eventual desire is to play a Brahms guitar, which is often played vertically, so I figured I might was well start now and not have to relearn anything.

And thanks for the kind words!
