I watched your videos for the first lessons and you did quite well. Especially the first two they were quite smooth. The second two I did however notice that you were not as smooth. I recommend slowing down especially with your string fingers. You are striking before your fingers are in a good zone on the fret board. The only problem is a small bit of lack of coordination between the two. This is the only problem that I can see but I really hear it more than anything. Other than that it was quite good, The smoothness that is applied in the first two should also be in the second two, and the last is better than the third. I know you have drawn attention to this already. I recommend slowing down and working on a single bar at a time and make sure your counting aloud so as you arrive where you want to make a clearer sound.
Good job in the fingerpicking however that is pretty up to par, you have a decent strike, it looks to be good technique from what I see.
Thanks!, ive been fighting a lot of old habbits.
I come from a blues/electric background.
example of one:
Things like economy of motion where you MUST go from one string to the next on the same finger is something i fight with because
in classical you always alternate fingers, but in blues/electric its what youre supposed to do; and i think that is what causes the hesitations on
my fretting hand because my brain still fights with "now? now? should i got now? what about now?"
I did blues for years, and its seeded pretty deeply. That third one is especially sting jumpy.
I find myself sometimes ignoring the " I, M, A" without realizing it and my M finger for example, will proceed through and hit the next string
if thats where the next note is.
Thank you for the comment/review,
