I agree with you on the Ghiribizzo piece, it clobbered my fingers as well as the strings. I think that one pretty much hit the performance envelope of my guitar....

Tom - you tackled it nicely. It was a great exercise for us to learn.

Olga - well done with the slurs. Each of your notes projected nicely.

Hi Olga. I agree with Ed. Your slurs sound good and I believe this means fingering is just right. All you need is time in order to get faster. I've had trouble with these when I speed up, where muscle memory kicks in and the pinky refuses to cooperate (means I'm not ready to go that fast...).

You are smart to work slowly, and I need to do the same. Lately, when I do the i-m & i-a slurs on the high "E" string, I roll the string off the neck (which I find very irritating :x ) meaning I am pressing/pulling too hard with the pinky AND going too fast.... :roll:

Hello There!
Here is my best. When i try to mute the last chord on the first part one base string sounds :( ...have to still practice it a thousand times so i get a silence instead of an additional note.
My fingers and memory hesitate in some parts...but hey, still sounds good to me :casque:

Edna - excellent. I liked the steadiness of your right hand in both exercises. Very little movement. And the speed of the GHRIBIZZO was impressive.

Hi Edna,
It sounds beautiful,
I particularly like your GHIRIBIZZO.
How you made accents and your dynamics.
Actually, you playing helped me to understand the piece better. At the beginning I was totally lost in the piece,
I was about to modify a few notes to make it sounds good for me :-) I hope Paganini will forgive mw for that
and listening to you helped me to get beck to the music,
Thank you!

Dear all,
Here is my Ghiribizzo #1,

I lost a nail on my "a" finger, so I tried to do my best with i and m.
Thank you!

Hi Olga. Whatever you did in the way of lighting and camera position made it much easier to see what you are doing! Great job playing this piece, and compensating for the "a" finger nail loss. I would not have noticed that had you not mentioned it beforehand.

I'm betting the tempo will speed up/even out once you get used to reading notes that far down the fret board. That is how things worked out for me, after probably 100 + attempts.

Olga - I have a constant battle with the "m' nail - it is always splitting. Tried salons, strengtheners, etc to no avail. I am avoiding going to a fake nail. I am in heaven when I see that nail just get a millimeter above the flesh.

Dear Ed and Tom,
Thank you for encouraging me
It does help playing better
As for nails, Ed, I have the same problem
I cannot grow them unless I am doing absolutely nothing with my hands
And nothing seems to help
I believe it is genomics

Thank you!
Olga
