Here are my Lesson 3 submissions:


Bring on Lesson 4?!?
Way to go Michael, you have really good form and you did a good job with the tempo and hitting the notes clearly. About the only callout is on lighting and zoom in a little so we can see the action on the fingers.

Thank you James and William.
I worked a lot on Leccione 5a, and still I needed like 10-15 takes to get a good recording.
Way to go Staffan, seems like each lesson there is at least a piece that challenges us, and I think you nailed it on Leccion 5a. On the goodmorning song, the left hand was out of view, just watch for that in the next round of videos. Did you attempt a higher tempo than whay you recorded, form what I saw it looks like you could go a few notches higher as you had good control between the notes. See you in Lesson 4!

Thank you Graham. Yeah, I could probably play a little bit faster. I'll try to speed up in lesson 4 :)

Good job Jono. Both pieces were well done. I noticed your hair got much shorter from the first piece to the second. Hopefully just a haircut and not the stress of the lessons.

:D

¡Gracias Bill!

Haha fortunately it was just a haircut for the holiday parties.Though I've been getting less sleep lately trying to add guitar lessons in my daily routine. But sleep is for the weak. :mrgreen:

You were right on target as well Alan! Keep it up!

Thank you both Alan and Christopher! Can't wait until after the holidays so I could focus on classical guitar again. Hehe.

Here is my last submission for lesson 3.
The mic I used was phone's, so the sound was kind of clipping.

Good Execution Jono!

I am hesitant to offer advice but would like to share my findings from my recent reading on guitar technique. I have been reading texts by Aaron Shearer, Frederick Noad and Christopher Parkening. The three sources agree that the hand should roll minimally as you switch from playing with fingers to playing with your thumb. This seems to be true for rest strokes and free strokes alike. I notice a fair amount of roll when you switch from thumb to fingers playing. In particular, Learning the Classic Guitar by A. Shearer provides an exhaustive description on proper position of the right hand and the steps in the execution of each stroke.

I am prone to doing the same thing. I am working hard to minimize/eliminate the amount of right arm roll. So far, it is proven to be very difficult for me to correct my habit.

Hello, Alan. Thank you for the heads up! I was wondering about the finger/thumb switching, but I was not aware where to look around about it. I'll definitely look it up. Looking forward for more of your future submissions!
