Thanks Denis for the advice that you mention me in the way of phrasing is precisely one of my goals for this year, make it more or less right at the moment I'm having to keep phrasing when I play it I lose the rhythm at times , and usually still hear a little flat, without much interpretation or feeling, it somehow. A greeting and thanks for your time.

Gracias Dennis por el consejo, eso que me comentas de la manera de frasear es precisamente uno de mis objetivos de este curso, hacerlo más o menos correcto, por el momento me está costando mantener el fraseo cuando toco, se me pierde el ritmo por momentos, y por lo general aún se escucha un poco plana, sin mucha interpretación o sentimiento, por decirlo de alguna manera. Un saludo y gracias por tu tiempo.

Hello everyone!

I was planning to record everything this Saturday, but I suffer from tonsillitis and I am not feeling good at all. So I will post everything on Wednesday the 28th, that day it is a public holiday here in Greece, and I will have plenty of time.
Do we have a deadline about this actually?
Thanks a lot

No deadline, Eva. Although if you wait too long, others may have moved on to the next lesson, and you're less likely to get comments.

At long last, here is my piece by Sor. Still has a few bumps and bruises, but I am getting there...

Miguel - your Sor is very nice. The only thing I would offer is to try and emphasize the melody over the base. Right now your base notes are a bit too loud and overpower the melody of the piece.

Dennis - Very nicely played. My only suggestion is to shorten the rests between passages. I think they are written as eighth notes but yours sound almost like half notes - it breaks up the music a bit too much. Other than that (and even despite it), it sounds very nice.

Hi Mark, very good performance on the Fernando Sor. Except for 2 little trips it was played fluid and very clear. The only advice i could give you is to work on the phrasing a bit. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Denis. I seem to get performance anxiety when playing with the camera on. What exactly do you mean by the phrasing?

Hello everyone,
I admit this is difficult to critique a peer student. :desole:
Eva - I hope you feel better.
Dennis - Very good. You had a nice pace through Sor.
Jorge - You went the extra mile and did the whole exercise from 6 to 9 and not just 9 :bravo: Your Sor was nice ,but it sounded like either you where hitting an incorrect note or the guitar was perhaps out of tune. I am not sure, but you did a good job and where fluid.
Mark - Your Sor was very good even though you had a small hick up close to the end.
Miguel - It looks like you had no trouble stretching to accomplish exercise #9 :bravo: . However, your pieces seems very rushed so they sounded more robotic and a bit out of tune or the strings are dead. Again, I am not sure.
Thank you and congratulations to all so far on a job well done for this lesson.
Bill
