Finally, here are my lesson 5 videos. I need to work on my nerves somehow. I took a few days off, kayaking season is finally here and I go out after work and that's seriously cutting into practice time. But I sat down, played Curriella perfectly and said, today is the video day.
I then proceeded to butcher it about 5 times in the row. But my wife was the phone, so I wasn't recording. When she was done, I started up the camera and man, I just couldn't play. I let the camera run for about 8 minutes until I got one with what I thought was only a few errors. Listening to it, uh, I can do better. But now I'll no no excuse to move onto lesson 6 and I'll do lesson 5 as my warmup. (I've been doing lesson 4 as my warmup these past few weeks.)
Oh, and sorry about the buzz, we moved some fish tank stuff around and now the camera really picks up the air pumps. I'll fix that in Lesson 6.
So I go to record Polyphonie and I see for the very first time, F and mf. What? How did I miss that. I soldiered on and did ok with the dynamic range, but that was at the expense of some flubbed notes. I think the dynamic range is important so I'm calling it done. Basically, it was my first time playing it correctly
The ima exercise is a great one. You can see that my a finger needs work, but this one, and presumably future ones, will be in my warm ups for a long time.
Oh, and here's my excuse.
