Im kind of in the limbo at the moment.
Yes, I'm finding the onset of nice weather to be a distraction. The exam will help to refocus my sights on playing just in time for the Mississippi summer's heat that will make me stay inside and play.

Good luck to all of you.

That is great, Bill! It motivates me to do the same. Last night I started learning how to memorize the fretboard and their notes, but on a very basic level.

James. Yes you are correct about the weather, and is doing good enjoying it.

Also it is nice to think that our guitars are part of nature. Outdoor classical guitar playing sounds amazing. Your guitar will get to meet and mingle with its cousins. :idea: :mrgreen:

This first pass through the exam process is confusing. I'm trying to figure it out in advance but like all of us I'm pretty much in the dark. I think I'm confident in saying that when any information is posted this thread is the go to place to gain insight into it.

Thanks in advance for all of your help.

That is fantastic news indeed. Thanks for the heads up. Looking fwd to seeing D01 2018-19 class take this to the finish line. For the group, the final sumbission is due on the spanish forum in May. As we are all working to refine the final submission, would be great to get input from the team as we gear up for the final submission. Given that the piece is one from Lesson 8, i'd propose we use that thread for sharing exam related content. Good luck to all.

Solid effort Aaron. I liked the deliberate pace you take in ensuring clarity of hitting the notes and I also noticed that you kept a fairly even pace through.

Something to call out is on ergonomics to prevent injury and also ensure your technique makes it easier to move for future pieces. Specifically, it looks from the angle that the right hand significantly arched at the wrist.

Otherwise looking fwd to seeing you across the line for the exam.

Good catch! I will definitely start watching for that as I play, might have to set the camera up so I can glance at myself from that angle. Thanks for pointing it out Graham.
:merci:

I'm looking forward to the exam as well and seeing you all in D02 next year.

Also, Mike Cook, I was looking through the eligibility list and see that you are taking on D01, D02, and D03 all at the same time. :guitare: HOW?!?! :lol: Assuming you have some prior experience playing CG?
