Here are my submissions for Lesson 3, thank you for taking the time to review

Jean-François Delcamp : SI SI RE | tripped up on the 14th bar


Anonyme : Good-morning to all | i didn't use a metronome on this one, slow tempo, almost missed a note


Dionisio Aguado : Leccion 5a | like everyone, this one was tough, on bar 5, 2nd note, i used the 4th left finger instead of the 3rd. 110 bpm


Anonyme : Lo, nous marchons sur un étroit chemin | recorded at 84bpm

Very smooth work Graham. Outside of a couple of fretting buzzing moments it's perfect.

Nice job Graham. My only comment would be on SI SI RE, the chair to your left was a bit out off tempo. :D

As the others have stated, well done Graham. I particularly enjoyed the mystery moving black chair, behind you, while you were playing SI SI RE. I may be wrong here, but I suspect it may have been one of your children, who did not get the memo, that dad is recording his piece. All the same, fun to watch.

Ian,
I kind of like the audio clip submission which you did very well on. It forces me to hear the music. Not that a video doesn't but it is a different effect that I cannot explain. Good job.

The rest of your submissions sounded very good as well. I was a bit disoriented with Leccion 5a as it seemed the audio and video were not in sync and especially with Lo Nous Marchans where you were rocking side-to-side in the chair. I found the rocking motion to be very distracting and could not understand how you were able to do it and keep up with the music as well as you did. Good job.

Left-hand thumb position is what I think you need to work on.
James

Thank you James, will continue working on hitting the notes right to minimize the buzzing.

@Ian and Judy, yes that was 5yr old....funny thing is I told him to stay out of the camera view....i suppose he complied :)

@Jeff after seeing the progress I have made the last three lessons with reading music notation and technique that comes from structured and consistent practice, I consider myself a beginner previously stagnant. I started several years back with an acoustic with the Mel Bay book but couldn't ever get through it, tried a few lessons but did not put I the practice time, so really found myself doing the same chords over and over but never really making any progress. This past summer for father's day my family got me a 'Fingerpicking guitar camp for adults' gift and really enjoyed the experience (Interlochen, MI). That renewed my interest for the guitar and really exposed the need for proper technique and fundamentals about form and reading music. After numerous YouTube spiral sessions and reading online, I landed on the Delcamp site. I have really appreciated the structure and team spirit and hope I can at least finish the first year. The short answer, no I am not a true beginner :).

Fine effort Robert. Happy to see you are sticking around. My only observation would be on Lo Nous, your right hand thumb position is a bit off. If you google "right hand thumb position for classical guitar," you find an excellent YouTube video from Bradford Werner that explains this. Hopefully it helps.
:bravo:
