The place Ghiribizzo N°24, because it makes me sweat
You and me both! I think it's the hardest piece in the lesson.

Beautiful Giuseppi! Man you make it look easy! :bravo:
I could have painted my whole house with the amount of time I've spent on that piece!

Giuseppe, beautifully and perfectly played on the Paganini - flawless damping on the bass notes, keeping a very even counterpoint to the melody!

Elias, you play the Novelette very well technically, all the right notes and clear, beautiful tone! I suggest slowing it down a little and focus on making the rhythm more even: you should be able to feel an even "1 - 2 - 3" beat, even though the piece shouldn't be played totally strictly like a march. Let the melody notes have their full value and enjoy their beautiful sound, no need to quickly play the next note. The slur or "hammered" eighth note on the 3rd beat at the beginning of the song should be even, both eighth notes have the same length.

Hi Jack! :D At minute 1:01 of your Novelette I noted that the beat before the last should be harmonic in 7th fret 6th string :desole: .

Hello Jeremy! 8) I greatly appreciate your comments, sometimes the pressure of time obliges one to record the lesson even if it is not quite correct :( . I promise to be more careful to upload better recordings.

Happy New Year to all! :casque: :bye:

Hi All,

Just a quick note to say that I'm not longer following the online lessons. Sadly, I don't have enough guitar time available to keep up with the lessons.

Elias, I hope you didn't take my comment as a criticism - for one thing, I'm all in favor of "keeping it real", i.e. uploading it the way it sounds when you play it. I wouldn't want anyone to hesitate posting something that they have worked on for a while just because they don't think it's perfect. The whole point of these lessons is to give each other feedback and encouragement. I was just trying to suggest a strategy as you continue to work on the piece - and really it sounded quite good. We always have room for improvement.

Did anyone else take a look at the 120 Giuliani Arpeggio studies? I played through the first 10 or so, and thought they were very helpful. By my calculations, if you worked on 5 a month you would finish the 120 in 2 years, as M. Delcamp suggests.

Jeremy, I've done the 120 studies off and on for the last couple years, as it was suggested as good beginner studies along with Diatonic minor and major scales by Segovia.I pulled Gulliani arpeggios out again and have started doing them again.Some are definitely easier than others. I do find my left hand fingers get sore playing the C and Dmin chords for so long, and I have had it suggested by others to just do the patterns without using chords, though this becomes very monotonous and boring.
When doing them, I try to work on different things, sometimes really concentrating on finger placement when strinking the strings, good tone, varied tone voices, speed, hand and finger position, etc. These are really good when you set goals, I think.
By the way, Tarrega has some nice arpeggio studies as well, which some may wish to look into.

"Just a quick note to say that I'm not longer following the online lessons. Sadly, I don't have enough guitar time available to keep up with the lessons."

Abie, Sorry you're not continuing. I'm struggling as well. I'm trying to maintain my repertoire, learn a couple of harder pieces, and do these lessons, which are not coming as quickly as the songs in lesson 3 were. I may get this lesson worked out yet, or maybe not in which case I may revisit them next time around. I also may try getting an instructor again. As much as these lessons are helping me, they are not addressing my largest issue right now, which is to become more comfortable (and competent) while performing for others. Good luck!
