Charles,
Very calm, even execution. You caught a little buzz at one point on Lo, Nous Marchans but so what. Your execution was so smooth I could follow it easily and in fact learn from it. I think I'm a bit hurried. The only criticism would be the left thumb riding up over the top of the fretboard. When I was getting advice on playing from Rock-n-Rollers that was a plus-up. Not so much for classical play. All said - Good job.

Crazy busy schedule these last few weeks but still managed to play guitar most days of the week. Sorry about the last submission, I didnt think the sound of the tv would be so clear... well lesson learned I guess, well wait untill misses Wijnans goes to sleep next time.
Critique and pointers always welcome ofcourse!

Great playing Charles. Overall good performance but lacks some tempo in the last 3 submissions. Do you practice with a metronome? If not maybe try it out and ramp up the BPM's until you reach the desired tempo.

What camera and microphone do you use?

For some reason I can't hear the audio....is anyone else having the same issue? I am watching from my phone. Will try when I get to a computer.

Great to see folks submitting, I am still working hopefully can record this weekend.

Charles, good steady tone in all your pieces. In your last piece, your index finger (left hand), was noticeably pointed up and away from the fret board. I tend to do this sometimes with my pinky finger. Gotta keep those fingers curled over the fret board, even if they are not be actively used to play notes.

Jeffrey, well done. Perhaps a little inconsistency in tempo, but I was most impressed with your excellent right hand position. I have to work on my own right hand position, which is less 'rounded' as expected, but that may be because i do not play with nails. Not sure if you play with nails on the right hand or not.

Classmates,
I have begun looking at Lesson-4. It begins by suggesting that we study two scale patterns on D01 page 54, numbers 4 & 5 (G major scale and C major scale, respectively).

Can anybody explain to me why number 4 is a G-Major scale? I expect a G major scale to contain F# which number 4 does not.

Any help understanding this conundrum will be appreciated.

Hey James,

I took a quick look at Page 54 for you.

Exercises 1, and 3-5 are all in C Major.

Exercise 2 is the only one on the page in G Major.

Hope I helped clear it up for you.
