David, :bravo:
It looks like you got an upgrade in video and audio. It is very clear and sounds very nice. I am glad to see with you busy schedule that you are making the posts. This time, before me. :desole:

Keep up the excellent work.

Good job Eva! I look forward to your final post. On the waltz the base notes should be dampened. However, I noticed that the sheet music wasn't explicit about that but Mr. Delcamp mentioned it in the lesson. I almost recorded it without the damping until I listened one last time to Mr. Delcamp and realized I missed that comment in the lesson notes. I also think in Greensleeves you added an extra note in bar 32, I believe bar 31 is suppose to sound through bar 32 but not be plucked again in bar 32, like the low E in bar 23 to bar 24. I also noticed on your scale it sounded like you did a nice job of keeping a consistent tempo. However, the scale goes from 1/8th notes to 1/4 notes so it creates a pause sound during the scale. Again, I learned the notes and almost missed that small detail too.
:bravo:

Hi All,
Here are my lesson posts. I am sorry I was having trouble with my microphone and blew out the gain on Greensleeves so the sound is kind of muddy. I reduced the sound so it doesn't blow out the speakers when listening. I almost ripped my ears off trying to get my earphones out of my ears when I listened because it was so loud. :shock: It was kind of funny but I was bummed that I didn't catch that when recording. :(

Thank you for listening.

Bill

Why isn't this in the exam qualifying submissions? Is something wrong with this I have to fix?

Hi Eva,

It appears the video is marked as 'private' so it will not play. You will have to go to your youtube account and mark the video as 'public'. In case you are not familiar I think this is how to get there:
Login to your youtube
Go to My Channel from the left pane
On the top of the page go to Video Manager
Find the video that you are trying to post and select 'Edit'
Under the basic information section it will say 'private'. Simply change that to 'public' and save it. It should work then.

I hope that helps.

Thanks,
Bill

Good job Mark! Being sick and busy with travel does make practicing a challenge but you got it done, so bravo. The Valtz had a few spots that sounded like the string was not full sounding, like maybe another finger was in the way and muted it out while you plucked it. You had a nice tempo on Greensleeves. :bravo:

As Bill has said, your video is marked as private. So I was unable to view it to add it to the qualifying exam submission list. Please either post here once you have updated the video rights or send me a message to let me know that you have fixed it and I will update the submission list.

Thanks,
It's the player, not the guitar...
But, the guitar helps!!!

Thanks Bill. I have been trying different fingerings for the Waltz, and I find that the volume for certain notes changes as I change the fingerings (the a finger tends to play a bit softer). Thanks for the feedback - I will pay more attention to this.

Mark.

Nice job Eva. I did notice that some of the notes in Greensleeves seemed a bit rushed. I would recommend using a metronome if you don't already to practice holding notes for the full beat. Use a very slow tempo to start, and gradually build up to the desired speed.

Mark
