Greetings all,

Several updates were made to the exam qualification tracker list, sorry for the delays.
I've been away for awhile and trying to catch-up, if there's a video you think I may have overlooked or in need of a reply to an older posting/question, please let me know.

Hello Mazen! Welcome to lesson 1! (I'm only only lesson 2...)

I love the fact that you had zero buzzes, that's great. I'm still buzzing. But you need to work on your rhythm some. Get a free metronome app, I got one, and it really helps a lot. Be sure to count out 1-2-3-4 for the measures.

You've also missed the repeat in Au Claire. A repeat is that double dot thing with the thin line then the thick line. That says to repeat the section before it. If you play the Delcamp videos and read along with music you'll see what I mean.

And congrats on starting your journey!

Welcome aboard! Be conscience of your thumb placement. It should be behind the neck of the guitar versus over the top of the neck as we usually do with steel string guitars. Other than that, nicely done.

Thank you Will and Chris,

The thumb placement, I really notice it when I watch the videos. I will keep it in mind when recording lesson 2.

For the other students, I dont have much feedback to give yet(I'll wait a couple lessons).
Only thing I can really say is use a metronome, and internalize the rhythm/beat.

Have fun everyone :D

Happy New Year and Welcome Aboard! It is hard for me to tell from the recording angle but I believe you are playing the string at a right angle with your right hand. This is causing your wrist to curve sideways to the ground. You might find the video at the link provided below useful. Make sure to navigate 3/4 down the page to the section "Personal Coaching Calls" to watch Connie Shue (the instructor) explain the appropriate technique. (This is not a plug for CGC - I do not know enough about this website to comment either way)

I hope you find the video useful.

Not too bad at all Aaron! Now, it's totally up to you if you want to further polish up any of the pieces or to move forward.

Personally, I still play Old Mac Donald to this day for a warm up :) It's a good familiar tune and a good way to practice alternation! All of these beginner tunes are, soak it up, move forward when you feel ready.

See you on lesson 2.

I should have warmed up a bit more. New to the capturing my playing on video. Even though no one was home, I still got nervous. Thanks for the comments. I look forward to Lesson 2.

Good first effort Aaron. Just curious if you have steel strings on your guitar.
