Here is a submission for 1/3 of the Lesson-8 requirement (the money-shot):


Solid effort, James. Tempo is getting there, but needs a little more fluidity. We are all facing the same challenges.

Thank you Judy.

I've taken the recommendations for improving cadence and tempo to heart and am now using a metronome something that I was adverse to. I think it improves my play and certainly slows me down.

Also, be sure to show your face at least once. Bad hair day or not.

It's still a work in progress and I appreciate any critique.

The addition of the metronome can only help to enhance your tempo and fluidity. The growth you have experienced this year is commendable. Looking forward to D02 and continuing the journey with you and the others of our present class.

I 2nd Bill's comments.
Just state your names clearly so that they can be placed correctly on your D01 completion certificates.

Woah guys!

Nice submissions all around. We are all going to pass.

I nominate James for most improved.. holy cow. Keep it up James, impressive submission.. One of your most fluid submissions to date, and on the exam piece, awesome! Try doing rest strokes with your thumb to help bring out the bass notes.. it is really a game changer and necessary to master if you are physically able.

I'll most definitely second Chris's nomination for most improved. James is a testament to what is capable if one truly desires a certain outcome. A true inspiration and friend.

Quoting George Eliot: It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.
