I have two more videos to post. I am still working on practice 20. My guitar keeps going out of tune while I play. It's new and has cheap strings (I guess that's the reason) Also, the sound recording is horrible.

I am working on keeping my left fingers closer to the strings. It is going to take some practice.

The strings will settle down, you could try over stretching them - at the end of playing tune them up a semitone and leave for a while. They seem to give a reasonable tone.

The piece sounds good and the finger position will come with practice.
Good to try the different RH positions and tone.
It looks as if at one point you use the tip of LH thumb to put pressure on the centre of neck. You would be better to keep ball of thumb somewhere near centre as tip is weak. This might also help with finger position. You don't actually need much thumb pressure, main pressure should come from weight of arm, try to keep thumb as light as possible it's less tiring.
Overall coming on well.

Hi guys, here is are my videos for Lesson 02. I am still struggling with the extended pinky, and when I remember to relax it, I loose focus in the other fingers. :? I started feeling more comfortable by the last exercise....but it took about 20 takes. :lol:
Thank you in advance for your comments.

Nice Juan. Yes, I have a similar problem with my pinky. It's glued to my third finger it seems.

Here is my last video for this lesson, "Lesson 20"
