Jorge,
I commend you for posting first. However, I think on this waltz on bar 13 the pull off is from a g# to an f# an not the natural g to an f#. This is also why Mr. Delcamp suggests the use of your pinky finger for this part of the music.

I looked back at the archive and saw the same mistake with other students, but I am pretty sure when I repeat that part of Mr. Delcamps video example he is using his pinky for the pull off from g# (4th fret e string) to the f# (2nd fret e string). He goes so fast in that section it is hard to distinguish the sound of the note but visually, I am pretty sure it's a g# as the sheet music denotes.

If anyone else has a different opinion, please let me know so I can correct the way I am practicing.

Thank you!
Bill

Hi Gorge, impressive. You got all the videos recorded in the first week!

In the Paganini I could offer you the advice to dampen the A and E bass notes right after playing and not to let them ring out at all. It looks so easy on Mr. Delcamps video, but I really struggle to get it to sound right. As Bill already wrote, I also think that the pull off is from the 4th to the 2nd fret.

The F major scale and Greensleves sound nice. You never sound or look like you are in a hurry. In the Greensleeves try to keep the pace on a more constant level.

I sympathize with the French people in these difficult times through which they pass, my prayers are with them; May God give you strength to get ahead of this horrible that lurks right now.

Me solidarizo con el pueblo Frances en estos duros momentos por los que pasan, mis oraciones están con ellos; que Dios les de fuerza para salir adelante de esto tan horrible que los acecha en estos momentos.

Hi Guys, i have a question regarding the excercise 11 on page 88, the D minor scale. I am a bit confused.

The way I learned the D natural minor scale is: D E F G A Bb C D. It makes sense on page 88 to put both scales (F major / D minor) on the same page, as they both use the same notes (same shape). The only difference is the starting point, the root note.

The way it is transcribed in D03 and also played by Mr. Delcamp is: D E F G A B C# D.

Can anybody please tell me what i am missing on this?

Thanks

Dennis

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_scale and scroll down to "Melodic minor scale". All the minor scales in Delcamp collections are melodic ones, not natural.

Excellent job Dennis. Your valtz was very nice. You damped the bases nicely. I also liked the trill sound you played in Greensleeves. I have been working on that too but a bit higher up the neck for a more harp sound but I keep snagging. That sound is very hard for me to get. I hope yuou have a nice trip home.
:bravo:

Hi Bill, thanks a lot for your commets. I am not sure what you are meaning with the trill sound in Greensleeves. Is it the 3 notes after the G chord? The way i do it is to put the 3 fingers (a, m and i) on the strings and roll off with my wrist. Now, no one else i checked in the videos seems to be doing it this way, so i guess my way might not be the right way. I hope i dont teach myself a bad habit. Maybe one of the operators can shed some light in how they are doing it.

Anyway, thanks again Bill and looking foreward for your recordings, i am sure they will be flawless again...

HI Dennis,
You are correct about the section I am talking about. However, I looked up trill and it looks like hammer ons and pull offs. So I guess I don't know what they call the sound I am talking about. I watched a Frederic Hand DVD a few months back and it showed that technique. I have to watch it again. I also found it on youtube here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PT0wLQ8iro . It wasn't easy for me. He made it look easy and sound really good.
