Tom - outstanding. If I can play that piece in 6 months as nice as you play it now I will be very happy.

Thanks Ed. Some pieces work out well for me, and some (ex: Schiarazula Marazula, among others ) still give me trouble.

Your recording of Greensleeves sounds good. The camera /computer setup is better, we can see both hands at work as you play. Your LH looks great (far better than mine). Watch the RH , it looks like you're bending the wrist as you pick the strings. I do this too. The hand sort of bounces as you play, in a direction away from the guitar body.

Great job!

Ed, if the RH thing was the result of trying to play with fingernail damage, then disregard the comment. I just now remembered that.

Hi Tom - thanks for the feedback. I will keep an eye on the righthand and wrist. I think that is one of my many bad habits and has nothing to do with the nails. The nails are slowly growing.

Dear Ed,
I love your recording. Very nice
I love the sound of your guitar and your tempo.
I wonder if you can do little more legato?
If you think it would work?
Thank you!

Olga - very nice. I loved the nice smooth finger walking of the scales.

Olga - thank you and you are right - I really need to focus on more legato. I think I am too anxious to hit notes that I am moving off the previous note too early.

Brian Boru's March - a few stumbles - for me more an exercise in trying to hit the correct notes and finger stretching.

Dear all,
Here is my valtz by Paganini

as it appear silent playing does work and even helps to spend time on the plane.

thank you!
