Hello Zafar,
thanks for watching my videos. I knew that light in my video is poor. Camera on my phone is not good enough. I will try to make next video during the day light.
Best wishes
Teodora

I appreciate your comments and thank you for taking some minutes to watch my videos.
I'll follow your advice and try to get a better mic, any advice on the type of microphone that I should get? I'll look for some information in the forums.

Both pieces excellently played, hard to give any advice for improvement. Can't wait to hear how they sound after another few weeks :lol:

I'm listening on headphones and the sound quality is ok, very clear and listenable with good detail. If you want a better microphone it will need to be matched with whatever recording m/c you are using. Out of choice I would always go for a cardioid condenser mic and i've always found the small capsule mics give excellent results. You can go for a stereo one or record mono and duplicate the audio track.

I would also think about what type of connection the mic uses:

Portable

USB mic

Phone

I used to keep things simple with a USB mic. Blue Yeti worked wonders for me.

Managed to finish these two today, but didn't try too hard. About three takes each. I think I will take a few days' break because the blisters on my finger tips are not getting better.

A Toye
The song is not hard but the damping is making me hesitate and make mistakes. Halfway through the song I gave up on it :chaud:

Soleares
Fun song to learn. Good for right hand practice. Need a lot more practice. And nice fingernails.

Very good if only three takes.

Hi Bert, thanks for the encouraging response! I was rather daunted by the prospect of catching up so many lessons and after doing the Malaguena, which took 2 hours and more than ten takes, I felt today I could not repeat the same effort. Anyway, hoping to join the class proper by lesson 5 and working towards polishing a piece or two, after the blisters heal. Thanks for watching.

All the pieces you have put up are excellent, smoothness will come with practice.
I have found Malagueña and Soleares quite tricky and I'm not sure why!
Good idea to let the blisters heal, my fingertips feel sore occasionally, but no blisters. I'm reluctant to push too fast as I think the practice times suggested by Prof Delcamp are to avoid any tendon or joint damage. If you've played before you may well have the strength in the fingers.
Anyway, you realise this advice is only designed to slow you down, as you will quickly overtake me :D
Mm mm, just realised, you already have!

Haha Colin I'm already slowing down on my own! I think you're spot on about the injury prevention. I will have to build up the strength and flexibility in the left hand again, and grow finger nails for the right hand! Hate long finger nails though and I want to do rock climbing soon... but it does sound better with properly shaped and filed nails. Also felt easier on fast repetitive free strokes for Malaguena (the part where the thumb plays the melody and the middle finger strikes high E repeatedly) and Soleares (the triplets where index and middle finger alternate on E). Or maybe thats just what I'm used to. Thank you for watching and your kind comments.

A little ragged, but I'm trying to do with minimum false starts and takes.
