Mike on the barre of the Valse, I could be wrong but I think you are only barring 5 strings and hitting the D for the bass note. I believe it should be a 6 string barre and the A bass note.

Here is an update post for Ejercicio N9. I always manage to buzz a string on the one. I think my finger placement is too high above the fret at times.

Here is my first attempt at Valse. This one was a tough one for me.

Tom - nicely done with both pieces. I liked to flow of the Valse. Maybe I am wrong here - should it be a full barre on measure 19 and 20? I noticed Mike only did a barre with 5 strings and it looks like you are only barring 3 or 4.

Hi Ed. Only a half-barre was needed there for the three notes being stopped (5th position C, E, A). I believe that was also stated in the instructions. Mike's choice to barre 5 strings seems fine to me if that is what is necessary to prevent string buzzing. :bye:

Olga - well done. 2 things

1, your camera angle is not showing your left hand - you may want to adjust the viewer.

2, on these chords - I think the hardest part is the staccato movement they want you to achieve on some of the chords. You need to stop the chord ringing out beyond the note value by pre-placing your fingers on the chord a second before you play the chord again.

Olga, I agree with Ed's comments. Also, breaking up the uploads - first submitting #44 then later #45 is a smart move. I'm having a lot of trouble with this chord exercise and this never occurred to me! :merci:

I find the pieces are a lot more fun to work on :?

Here is my recording of Accords #45. I found the 3rd from the last measure required the most effort to learn in the entire piece.

Tom - I really like how you can make a technical exercise sound "musical".
