Judy - Terrific right hand improvement. You are using your finger joints, rather than plucking your hand away from the strings. One suggestion I would make is to try to get your RH thumb a little more forward of the other fingers.

MIke, as I noted on the D01 board, your playing at all levels is very good, and how very motivated you are - D01, D02, D03 + CGC Facebook.

Wow. Judy

Here is my 20 second improvisation. Thank you, Colin, for the reminder. I hope I don’t end up your ‘problem’ student. Also, 20 seconds lasts a great deal longer than I thought. :roll: :lol:

[
Questions for D02 fellow students:

How much practicing do you do each week?

At least a half hour daily, and 1 1/2 to 2 hours several times a week. I don’t know how much of that time I am technically practicing; I tend to pick up and play what strikes me at a moment.

How do you structure your practice sessions?

Warmup with a few easy etudes. Then run through more demanding pieces from various scorebooks. Then whatever part of a Delcamp assignment needs work. Then I play whatever I feel like playing. I see that my sessions are not as formally structured as other’s are. I am woefully neglectful of my scales and technicals.

Do you work on music outside of Delcamp Classical Guitar on a regular basis?

Yes. I just did a performance with my very talented granddaughter that used other music. And I have many pieces I learned prior to the online classes that I enjoy playing. I also play contemporary music on a steel string acoustic guitar.

Are you satisfied with your progress?

I am tickled pink with everything I have learned already, but I realize too that I’m only getting out of these lessons what I am willing to put into them. I’m happy with my progress, it has motivated me to be less neglectful of lesson assignments that I’m not crazy about. Like Mike, I’ve a way to go yet.
