Very nice playing Dean. A pity the piece is so short. If you don't mind: I noticed your right hand moves a lot during those runs; this may be something that you could look into? Other than that - very nice playing.
Cheers Rutger

I enjoy your playing Dean, nice job. I think your hand movements just show your verve for the music.

Thanks for the comments. I know that my right hand moves when I pluck the string. That was one of the first rules I learned "don't move your right hand". But it takes extra energy on my part to keep my right hand immobilized and I think it goes against the laws of physics (for each action there is an opposite reaction). When you pluck the string, it is natural for your hand to move a bit. And I am a bit aggressive (maybe too much), so that maybe my hand moves more than most. I guess it's open for debate. I can keep my hand immobilized if I choose to but it takes extra energy and feels a bit rigid.

Interesting debate. I'm used to rest my thumb on some string, or deliberately mute basses with it, or let the finger float above them if they should resonate. For me, it would cost extra energy to move the hand, not to keep it in place.
