It's called Multi Timer and is available in the app store. I find that it helps me maintain a structured practice routine.
Thanks! Looks like there are several comparable apps for android (what I have), though none of the ones I found have an interface quite as pretty as that one.

Hi Classmates,

Below are my submissions for Lesson 7.
Nicely done Ian. Sounded like maybe a couple of errant notes on O bella ciao.

The exam piece should be posted next week. Good luck.

Hi Bill,
Yes a couple of odd notes alright..was just checking you listening :)
I wanted to get the submission through before exam piece posted.
Interested to hear what it is. I think we have a few weeks to post it. Will we have a seperate thread to post some drafts for reviewing ?

There was a new announcement for Exam... Don't know if its for all levels but getting exiting :D

"A bit of a change in the final exam again this year, whereas in prior years the exam piece was selected from one of the pieces in the lessons earlier in the year. Last year in D06 on the Spanish forum, the piece was new and unknown to all of us. As JFD said it was not real difficult, but still a challenge to perfect it in just one month.

I like the idea of promoting new composers. I don't have a problem paying for the music, though some may. On the French forum, moderators have said if there are problems getting the music for any reason, let them know.

A change too in the more stringent requirements to post every week. I must admit I haven't met this rule the past year. I hope this is applied going forward and not retroactively.

Good luck to everyone who has qualified ( or will) for the final. You've already accomplished a great deal. Good luck on the final! :war:

Great stuff, Ian. Quand j'etais chez mon pere sounded excellent and O bella ciao was good too. I also liked your improvisation.
I noticed that you held the guitar differently for O bella ciao. Was it easier to play that way?

Hi Staffan,
Cheers for the feedback
played O bella like that just as a little experiment, seems ok playing it like this as there isnt too much stress for the left hand in this tune.

Great job Ian. Your tempo in Quand j'étais chez mon père was particularly strong.

Thank you Jono.
Sorry it took a while. I was/am in the middle of moving to a new place. Just finally moved some of my gear to a temporary spot. Also, I am now living right next to a furnace within my new room :casque:. In the future expect to hear intense air blowing, toilet flush refilling, and other random artifacts. But so long as I get to play and still hear the guitar I cant complain. Cheers!

Very nice Jono.
I really appreciate your effort and it should be easy to follow.

I hope the distractions don't affect your sleep. You seem to have a good natural rhythm which is nurtured by a good night's rest.

I'm looking forward to the exam and continuing into D02.

It might even help me sleep. It's like having a white noise background 24/7.

Bill, thanks much!

Anyways, what is everyone practicing at the moment while waiting for the exam? Im kind of in the limbo at the moment.
