Thank you all for the comments.

I am still not used to play free stroke with thumb, and often my simultaneous free strokes are not "simultaneous" as in the Atoya piece.
As an attempt to reduce number of takes, I practice at a faster tempo then slow down at recording time. When my mind wanders, the tempo drifts back to the practice speed.

Your pieces always sound balanced and in control (not choppy jumpy like mine). I'm looking forward to seeing your submission. I also want to check a problem that I see in mine and to some degree in Andrei's clip. I think the problem is "natural" to wrist-benders (I don't believe just because something feels natural, it is right). If you do not have that problem, then another good reason to join the straight wrist camp.

About the rest of the month, my list is not interesting as Andrei's. I have 40 more cabinet doors to fix (striped the bad paint job done by the contractor and repaint). I think I am about to master the act of painting without showing brush marks.

Chu, I'm dying of curiosity: what problem are you talking about :?: Is about better balance and control?

Good Morning Fellow Students:

I set about this morning to recording this months submissions. I look a bit disheveled, and probably half asleep. But that's ok! :-) I think they could be better, but comments from others are very welcome! Thanks for watching.

Hi Edna:

I thought your posts were great. You look very comfortable in your playing which is great. The only comment in soleares is the measures with triplets causes your tempo to slow down a bit. Keep up the great work! I can see a marked improvement in this month over last. It must be all that PRACTICE! :)

Hi, Bert Stendahl,
Well done for your study assignment "ATOYE".
As I said before,it is difficult for me to comment listening to audio only.
I noticed a "rhythm" part need to smooth out(need more practice). Still you are better at least submitted your assignment.

Thanks Jeremy for watching and input. Have to get used to metronome to keep the tempo...
