Yes, Pesky, the ZOOM Handy Recorder app in the iPhone produces a .wav sound file (and I think the same is with the iRig Recorder app). I then connect the iPhone to my PC using the iPhone standard USB cable and use the iTunes (there will an equivalent procedure in the Android world) to transfer it to my PC. Once the .wav sound file is in the PC, you open it with Audacity (it is a free application) and produce another file in a more compatible format - .wma, .mp3, etc... (function Export in Audacity). You can then post it - in .wma format only - in the Forum using the Attachments button in the post editor.Peskyendeavour wrote: ↑Sat Jul 29, 2017 1:27 pmThank you Yisrael and Jorge!
Yes Yisrael, you can call me 'pesky' for short or others call me 'cheeky nutter', 'trouble' or any of those words. I answer to just about anything :p as long as it's kindly meant.
Oh yeah... forgot my phone can record - how silly of me - but it doesn't do wma files. Sorry I really won't have time to do any edits. So even if I can record wma files with an app (?any recommendations??) it will be direct one take recording- mistakes and all included.... Work and other things make me far to busy to make recordings a priority... but I know what you mean it's not easy for you to comment without hearing it. I appreciate it would mean less for me ultimately. Will eventually find an app. Right now the pieces are still too raw anyhow. Needs a lot more attention.
I play a few pieces at the same time due to my short attention span. :p but I do pay critical attention to details while I'm on it. Often I find When I come back to it, i see different things I won't have seen otherwise had I just spent an entire hour going over and over the same piece. I have a weird brain and a nutter I know... but I know that is how I work best. I don't move on till I've learnt it eventually but I take my time and I am not rushing to finish it or not paying attention to details or diluting my attention as such.
I like to learn the details like stopping notes from the start, take it slow and make sure I do them so that it's ingrained in me to stop it. Learning it later is like unlearning bad habits so even harder.
To even insinuate that I would ever play at concert speed is laughable. Starting slow yes but I would probably never play at speed Rob performs it (as posted on this thread)
I googled "Sor rest strokes" and immediately come across Tom Poors essay. So he didn't do rest strokes then... or at least not advocated it in his method.
#5 bar 10 the 2 is used to hold down the E so it cannot be magically deployed to play the A. Or are you advocating a small bar and dropping the joint?
#6 contra morion slur - sorry went back all the way and still couldn't find Jorge' discussion- I'm so sorry but could Jorge PM me the result? Or tell me which page it's on? I literally trawled through and still can't find - obviously being quite blind... incidentally Rob's recording sounds like he plays it rather than slurs it... is that true?
Or has my ears been deceived?
As for the slur in measure 31 of the #6, see, please my post viewtopic.php?f=1&t=109053&start=420#p1184470 of March 13th. It is a tricky slur, indeed, but, with some practice, it can be done easily
