Thanks Giuseppe, yes, I'm trying to alternate fingers as much as possible.

Hello fellow D05 students,

Here's my submission for lesson 03. Both pieces still need quite some polishing, and I'm making mistakes here and there. Please let me know if you have comments :)

Hi Michele.
Good job.
In the polyphonie you manage to bring out the separate voices nice.
Wascha mesa need some more practice so you are more secure. Good variation in tone on the repeats (That tend to set me off... probably because I practice without changing the r.h. position.) The speed varied a bit (accelerating), but that might have been your intention(?).
El postillon was very good.
All enjoyable :casque:

Håvard,

Thank you very much for the feedback. Keeping tempo is a big problem I have often. I should probably exercise with the metronome to keep that in check :)
I'll keep working on it in the next few weeks and I will post a new video.

Cheers!

Pretty good Satyajit, the finger alternation is improving. There's some good drills/exercises that can be used to work that area of technique.


Nice work Michelle, your catching up :-)

It's been almost 6 months since my previous recordings. For various reasons I haven't found the time to keep up with the course, but lately I've had some more time with guitar, and I wanted to record some of the lesson pieces I've been studying (on and off) for the past months.

Tonight I started with Mertz's Ländler, which I've found challenging, yet pleasing to play. Hopefully some of you get inspired to post your own recordings for some of the non-required D05 pieces (or improved versions of the required ones) during the summer break.

More recordings to follow in lesson 4... hopefully, and as always, comments are welcome! :D

Very Nice and glad to have you back Marko. Your playing- accuracy, rhythm, interpretation, and tone production - are always an inspiration to me following one level behind you. Maybe you can stick around in level D05 next year. Our ranks in D04 have dwindled and I'd appreciate the coaching.
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Yes, Eric, the beard is even more important than the nails :lol:

Thanks for your words, Rick! I'm still finding a lot to study in D05 pieces, and I know from experience that D06 is a huge amount of work, so I may just do what you suggest.
