Here is my latest version of the polyphony - I think the notes stand out a bit better than the last version, though some of the notes are a little too soft.

That's pretty good. I can forgive the few buzzes and mistakes :D
I think my problem will be getting up to speed on most of these.

Thank you for your coment Colin, usually the trick is to start slowly and build up speed, but it seemed I couldn't get a clean version this time no matter how slow or fast I played it.

I look forward to hearing your version. :D

Dave,
The Polyphonie piece sounds much clearer than the previous version. Well done.

One comment on your fretting technique, you tend to reach for notes while a change in hand position should be used. For example, your left hand stays at the 1st position when you fret the A at the 5th fret. In his video, monsieur Delcamp hand was probably at 2nd or 3rd position when he fretted this A. By the way, if I play at your tempo, I'll litter the piece with mistakes all over the place.

Colin,

Looking forward to seeing your playing. I wouldn't worry too much about being up to speed for these exercises (I don't think I've ever been able to play at the posted tempo except for maybe the twinkle twinkle piece back in D01).

Thank you very much for your comment Chu, Yes I often start to reach for the next chord position before I have totally left the previous chord position in an effort to make my chord changes smoother, but this is probably not the most effecient technique. I will certainly be looking to make my position
changes far more legato in the next lesson.

Once again thank you for your help and advice. I am still struggling to get a (reasonably) clean version of messy washer, but have already started on next lesson's pieces.

Keep up the excellent playing Chu. :D

Here is my version of Wascha mesa - Really don't know why this one was so difficult for me - took all my concentration to get most of the notes right so RH fingering was a problem once again as you can see from the video.



Still a few mistakes, repeated notes with same RH finger and I could have done so much more with dynamics. Thought I had my RH fingering sorted but concentrating so hard on the left hand that it all goes to pot when I start recording.
