Angela,

In the Carulli's piece there was a little bit movement on the right hand when plucking with "p", and the pinky on the left hand seems to be too straight which may touch and mute adjacent strings. Other than that very good performance.

Hi, Angela Zhao,
very well done! Congrats!
How long did it take to learn each piece?

P.S. The "Slurs" video does not open, says "This video is private".

Andrei,

The Carulli's piece is pretty straight forward. It took me 2 days with around 1.5 hours each day, and about 10 takes. I went through the Carcassi's piece a few times, and it seems to be more difficult. Have you looked at the Carcassi's piece? How did the prof do the damping? With the fretting or plucking hand?

This lesson seems to be easier that the previous one, right? I have not started working on it yet, so did not watch the prof's videos closely.

Well, I watched the video a couple of times and to me it looks like for damping the plucking hand is used exclusively.

I tried the Carull's piece, it is not difficult indeed (but sounds beautiful, doesn't it?). The Carcassi's piece is incomparably more challenging :)

Hi classmates, wow people start uploading videos already! I haven't got much time to practice but will try to do more by midweek. Also apologies not been able to watch Youtube. Wifi router not working currently and I'm trying to save mobile bandwith :|

Agree the Carcassi Sauteuse piece is much more difficult. It's like a piece just to practice damping techniques... I haven't watched Prof's videos but the last segment, the part after the Fine seems to be p-a-i-m all the way till near the end, planting all fingers at the beginning of each measure so i will damp the 3rd string.

Try to finish this month assignments before Chinese new year. The Andantino piece is simpler and I could experiment with dynamic and tempo. But I have a hard time with the dampings in the Sauteuse piece and had to fall back to my usual "robotic" style. By the way, anybody knows what that horizontal line in the second measure of the second section (measure 9 from the beginning) is?

Hello all

I have uploaded a game. The game plays 4 random notes from C major (1, 2, 4, 5) and after a paus you are given the answer. Press play to play, the game is repeated until stop is pressed.

Wow, that's nice! Is the source code available on Github?

I have some suggestions:
- play the first note before playing other notes. Otherwise it requires perfect pitch :)
- it would be also great to reveal answers by clicking a button
- please disable the "Play" button while it is playing, otherwise if you click it multiple times you get multiple voices
- are only 5 notes available?

And thanks for keeping all prof's videos accessible and organized :)

Hi Chu Bun,

great clean work as usual, no negative comments. Nice dynamics and variations in Andantino!
As of the horizontal line my guess is that it denotes relation: C from the previous measure should be muted when you play D (rather then G).

P.S. Nice haircut!

Thanks for trying.

- play the first note before playing other notes. Otherwise it requires perfect pitch :)
Or you can sit with the guitar and compare.
- it would be also great to reveal answers by clicking a button
If you open the console you get some answers.
- please disable the "Play" button while it is playing, otherwise if you click it multiple times you get multiple voices
Some might want extra difficulty.
- are only 5 notes available?
Actually only 4, easy start.

Adrei,

Thank you for the comments and for noticing my new "do".
I'm just curious how you guys/gals handle the dampings in the 5th and 6th measures of the second section? Below is how I do it and the combi of (p) and (a) in the second measure caused me 10s of retakes. (plucking damping fingers are between parentheses).
