Great work, Ian and Judy. Sounds very musical, as the others have noted.

Great work Staffan! Your Volt has very nice phrasing and is musical!

Here is attempt on Volt. It is quite hard to play it smoothly and sometimes my thumb overpowers my fingers in strokes.

I've looked at all of the submissions and each are a good solid effort.

Staffan has completed the all of the lesson and his work is very good. Timing and exactness are the two areas that continue to be a challenge but your progress through the course is so obvious. Keep up the good work.

Judy I agree with the comments of Ian and would just recommend slowing it down a bit on Volt. I also like your new picture. It's a nice profile with such an excellent smile.

Jono - The smoothness and rhythm of your play is superb. The tune is delightful to hear.

Good luck and Happy Summer to all of my friends in D01.

Having spent most of my time on the exams, I raced to get these out before lesson 10 begins, so they are very rough with not much practice!

Very well done Mike.

Also it looks like you've gathered a few nice additions to your guitar collection. Very nice.

On the topic of Volt, here is my preliminary effort - rough around the edges, but a start....
Really good as usual Judy. Don't think I would even call it "rough around the edges" lol. Only bit that was a little off was the tempo on measure 11 where the song's only 8th note is. Sounds beautiful none the less.

Volt needs more work ...
Great job. No doubt a little more practice with Volt will make those difficult bits much smoother but it still sounded great, the other two were near perfect, I struggle with the 5th measure a lot, always seem to miss :oops: Looking good!

Beautifully played. I agree that the bass notes seemed to overpower just a tiny bit. Great as usual.

All sound really good. Few hiccups in Volt but the sorta stuff that will clear up with a little practice. Keep it up!

That was fantastic playing Judy....the musicality was spot on and your transitions between the notes flowed really well without the stacatto feel.

Way to go!

After watching Judy, Ian, Jono, Mike, and Staffan, (way to go mates), there's a few things I could have done better, especially with damping of the base notes, and repeat at the end of Dionisio. My practices were also not as consistent :oops: following the final exam, however wanted to get these in. Thanks in advance for sharing your feedback!

Well done Graham.
Volt sounds good.
Valse also sounds good, but as you noted you didn't do the repeats. I also think that you didn't play bar 10 correctly. You should play B and D on the third and second string on frets four and three.
