Its really good Roger, better on timing :bravo:

One minor item, let the half-notes ring out for their full duration (in common time) 2 beats per measure.
The half notes are just getting cut-off a little bit sooner than full duration in m2, m4, m8, and m12.
Thanks John for the review.
One question. What do you recommend as far as practicing.
I generally practice Segovia Scales and finger exercises. I struggle with the metronome
I have the Seiko SQ200 Multi-Function Digital Metronome it has a let of functionality but the
sound is not desirable any suggestions ?

Hi Georgi,
Good job on this one. I just notice that you lay or lean your right hand on the guitar while using your fingers to play.
Maybe if you raise your hand off the guitar from leaning it would help. I have the same problem with buzzing when using
The E A and D Strings. I guess it has to do with the strings being rap in wire where as the G B and A strings are not.

Argh!!
I do not like the song anymore. The song simply does not work without faults.
In this recording the errors are at the end. Sometimes at the begin, sometimes in the middle but always with errors. Grrr.
But I have to go on to the next level, therefore here is "Lo Nous Machons..."

@Roger Dorfield
Thank you, Roger! I will follow your advice. :)

@Andreas Hanuschek
Andreas, I am at work at the moment and cannot open the video but if you say that you are still making mistakes, I would advise you to go on further and learn the new lesson but still keep on playing the tune. Personally, I have almost given up with the 1st tune of the next lesson (La cucaracha) but yesterday I noticed that I am making progress in remembering the notes and playing the tune with fewer mistakes. I have decided not to record the video now but to learn the next tune and keep on playing the 1st one every day. I hope by the end of the month I will be able to play all the four tunes without mistakes. It seems we have the same problem with recording videos :) Sei geduldig :)

Hi Roger,

There are many good finger exercises incorporated into the D01 workbook, and additional scale and arpeggio exercises in the back of the workbook.

If one can set aside the minimum time recommendations and practice suggestions from Professor Delcamp D01-L1 across 6 days per week, then incremental and progressive improvement will be made. If one can put in additional time and the current lesson pieces are mastered, then working on additional material is certainly a bonus.

I don't currently own a mechanical metronome, I only have a free digital-app metronome on my smartphone that I use periodically during practice sessions. I can vary the sound-level and speed pretty easily. Unless the metronome has a sound preference adjustment to alter the sound, then they can sound a little dull :-)

Hi Andreas,
The recording actually is pretty good overall. :okok:
Now sure, there are a few spots here and there where things can be improved but I think 90+% of things are pretty good.

The only way I know of to smooth out the rough spots are to break out all of the difficult passages into small work-able chunks (perhaps a full measure or work two measures together), slow the tempo way down and master the passage at a very slow speed. Play the parts perfectly at a very slow speed, repeat several times, then increase tempo slightly, but not much.

Hallo John
Many thanks for your tips. I will try to play slower and watch out for difficult passages.

Haha! That's actually my daughter! She's 4, and she would play with the camera and laugh!

Thanks for the congrats, and Merry Christmas as well!

My left shoulder doesn't hurt. It feels pretty comfortable. You might be experiencing an ergonomic challenge. Would you mind posting a picture or a video of you playing in classical position? I adjust the height of the neck so I only have to move my arm (mostly) at the elbow to fret the instrument. This allows my shoulder to remain confortable.

Thanks for the kind words, and I hope this helps!
