Below are my submissions..more to follow hopefully this evening
Wow Ian, i really enjoyed the fluidity you have making it sound very musical and you look relaxed. Nothing more to add other than the call out for the thumb.

It was also good to see you recording with a metronome in a few of the pieces....this is still an area of improvement i need and this was a good reminder to incorporate it into practice more.

Nice tones from your playing, Graham! I wish I can make my guitar sound more like yours. Keep up the good work! My playing make some of my strings sound metallic and ping-y.

Joni good job on the submission, with a bit more practice you will be able to make it flow better. Your technique and posture like good especially with the left hand. For your right hand, look to keep the wrist straight rather than bent, from what I have seen and read, it will help minimize fatigue and ware. Looking fwd to seeing not is your submissions.

Sure thing Graham. I have been having trouble with my right hand positioning. Im not sure if I need to elevate the head of my guitar more, so my right wrist could straighten up more. So far my right hand still feels awkward. :merci:

I have my recordings ready to submit :3

I have done lesson 5 and into 6 before. 6 is where I'm starting to have to apply myself. I'm finding Sor Opus 60 Lesson 1 challenging but fun.

To be honest I'm in review mode now. I'm going through and making sure I'm playing everything right. I have a music stand now.. So I can do this much easier now.
Boom boom boom boom.

That's impressive Chris!

Yes a music stand is a great investment. I should get one too, lol. I've been using my piano's music stand. :mrgreen:

Also, this last paragraph is my question for everyone. Did the finger indicator starting from the marked note in this picture seem off for you?

Yes. In times like these I tend to just play it however I think best. I'm not sure why they are calling specifically for i finger there.

Mestro Delcamp starts on m and alternates throughout the entire piece. I think that's how I played it and I recommend you do the same. Maybe it's a typo.
Boom boom boom boom.
