Hi Judy,

Be cognizant of plucking upwards on your chords, rather than pulling your fingers in as if making a fist. I have found that playing open strings and using my left hand to hold my right hand in place is helpful. After a time it should become more natural.

Thank you Bill for evaluating my playing. You are absolutely correct and I am aware of the error of my right hand plucking up. I think my right hand has been too low and I have to start to arching it more. Definitely, I have to correct this mistake now, rather than later, as it will negatively impact any progress in my playing. Thank you for the helpful input.

I'd recommend investing in a Godin Tric Case (41411) for classical guitars. They're Thermally Regulated Instrument Cases. I own four of these for my higher end classical guitars and have both my Martin guitars in these cases as well.

Thanks for the recommendation, Bill. That case looks legit. I need to get rid of my super old case, and get that one.

Finally posting my lesson 6! I had no idea with a Ricercar was (is), so I look it up. If you don't already know, a ricercar is an elaborate contrapuntal instrumental composition in fugal or canonic style, typically of the 16th and 17th century.

Scale in thirds

Lecon, Opus 60


Carcassi: Exercise 59

Nicely done Mike. You're a wealth of information and I like that you share it on this forum. BTW...I really enjoyed your rendition of Andantino as well. Beautifully played. It is also one of my favorite Carulli pieces and something I've been working on for a few weeks.

Chris, Judy, Jono - awesome job keeping the bar high with lightining speed submissions and very good playing. I feel like i am constantly behind playing catch up, need some of your time management skills!!!

Chris and Jono really smooth playing. One request is perhaps adjust your camera angle a little bit so we have a better view of that is happening with the right hand, kind of like the angle Judy has. I am struggling with the right hand finger placement and seeing how others are playing helps.

Judy really good job hitting the notes. I haven't gotten this far yet, however on Ricecar score, its calling for rest stroke - from what I saw, you played the piece with the free strokes.

Way to set the pace!

:merci: I took a look at Judy's submissions, I totally see what you are meaning man.

I'll try to remember to rotate my chair to the right a bit before my next recording. I think that should fix it.
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Mike,
Wonderful effort and bonus points for the trivia lesson and the complete Carcassi Opus 59. I'm scared of that piece because I can't make it be musical. Great job.

Great reviews by each of you!
