Nice Job Zafar :okok:

Nice Job Peera :okok:

Nice job Charles :okok:
Watch the i and m finger alternation more closely, these exercises help train the fingers to alternate versus double-plucking notes with the same finger. Practicing very slowly with strict finger alternation, then building speed is a good recipe :-)

Thanks very much for great question, Le. I had the same question.

Thanks very much for great explanation, John.

Cheers,

Aung

I have a question about working on controlling the volume by playing crescendo and decrescendo. Is that just control the strength of right hand's fingers or is there something else that we need pay attention when do that technique? Thanks. :merci:
Hi Le,

The crescendo is analogous to turning the volume knob on a radio gradually from very low volume range increasing to the loud volume range.

The decrescendo would be similar but in the the opposite direction, decreasing from loud to soft.

The pressure or force exerted by the fingers as they graze across the strings can be as light as a feather--at the pianissimo range--or very strong and firm--at the forte range.

Another analogous example might be like painting with a brush, the very feather light brush strokes are soft and delicate applying thinner layers of paint. Very bold brush strokes press into the canvas more firmly and apply thicker layers of paint. The fingers likewise can be trained to respond at will like brush strokes across the strings :-)

Professor Delcamp's C major scale exercise is meant to begin exercising this area of technique. Listen closely to the video and the crescendo volume he applies at the beginning of the scale compared to when he reaches the highest notes. Conversely, notice the decrescendo volume is louder when he first descends the scale at the higher notes, then it gets softer as he reaches the lower notes in the scale. The volume changes coincide with the crescendo/decrescendo markings/symbols on p. 54 in the exercise.

I think that in exercise 20, our finger should always touch the string except the finger that makes free stroke. So there are at least 3 finger on string all the time. Am i right?

Great spotting, Le. You're right. Thanks very much. :)

Will practice to get it right and submit again.

Dear all,

Here is my attempt to correct fingers' position for Exercise 20. I found it quite hard to get rid of buzzing sound and I still can't make it smooth. Appreciate any advice.

In exercise 20, Maestro Delcamp demonstrates the Damping exercise with his plucking hand in what some might call a 4 string
'planted' position where each finger is planted on a string but not the same string. In the exercise the thumb (p) is planted on the D string, then the other fingers are planted on the remaining strings, (i) on G, (m) on B and (a) on E.

The exercise alternates strokes between p & i, then p & m, then p & a. The in-active fingers remain planted on their assigned string when active fingers are performing strokes.

Hi Aung,

The open strings on their own should not have buzz when set into motion, however, there can be buzzing introduced when the vibrating strings come into partial contact with the flesh of the finger, but not enough contact to fully dampen the vibrating string. The partially damped string still vibrates but at a much slow rate and with some higher overtones that give that buzzing/metallic sound.

I do notice attempts to dampen the bass string much sooner before the treble strings are sounded and vice-versa. Try doing the exercise much slower, but let the bass note sound fully after being plucked, then pluck the treble string, then fully dampen the bass note. Likewise for the treble strings, pluck a treble, let it sound, then pluck the bass, then dampen the treble. These are all free-strokes, watch closely at Maestro Delcamp's fingers in the video, instead of rest stroke, he does free-strokes.

Thank you. And how about my submission, is it good or bad, is there anything wrong? I hope to hear any comment and advise. Thanks for saving time to answer my questions.
