Thanks Bill, I think I need to work on the chords and freestrokes next.William Byrd wrote: ↑Sat Mar 02, 2019 11:25 pmHi Staffan,
Very nice effort. I need to study your calmness while playing and transfer it to my playing.
The only thing I would mention is on Gammes en tierces, you are plucking the strings in an upward motion. Try pulling the fingers into your palm when plucking chords, as if you are making a fist. I do the same thing sometimes, so it's something I continue to work on as well.
Good point William, I'm still in the very early stages of learning how to keep the rhythm, counting out loud will be my next phase. And yes, getting to the end was a relief after so many attempts, good eye on catching that...much obligedWilliam Byrd wrote: ↑Mon Mar 04, 2019 12:58 amHi Graham,
Nicely done all around. I wouldn't become too dependent on the metronome but initially it can be useful. Even JFD recommends counting out loud versus using a metronome. The only time I use mine is when practicing scales.
I particularly like the Sor piece. You were rocking it and I especially like the smile at the very end. Definitely a sense of accomplishment.
Yeah, I seem to be doing that when playing rest strokes with the thumb. I will try to avoid that in the future.
Yes, for me it was a challenge to play rest strokes with the thumb and i or m fingers simultaneously. Especially when doing the recording as I get a little tense in that situation. So there were several occasions when I didn't manage to pluck the strings at the same time.Ian Howe wrote: ↑Mon Mar 04, 2019 9:12 amStaffan,
very good recordings. Timing and tempo needs some improvement but i guess that's why we are all here
I noticed on Ricecar some of the base notes where slighly off from what i could hear but over all very well executes.
I would keep at the tunes and include them in your daily practice. See you over in Lesson 7
