Uriel. Nice work. Good posture and nice left hand coverage on the frets. Work on getting cleaner notes with the plucking, and use a metronome once as increase the tempo of each piece. Regards, Nelson. Ps. Courage and go forth!

Awww, it's ok, Nelson and thank you for the tip, I appreciate that. You remind me of a shy friend of mine :) . And I love our forum etiquette though. That's how gentlemen treat each other. *hat tip* :wink:

[quote="Lucian Bistreanu"]Hi everyone,
Here are my attempts :)

Hi Lucian. Nice work. Try plucking by bending at the highest knuckle joint and keeping your index and middle finger a little straighter. Plus, do you have a metronome? It would be good to use one to keep the piece steady and moving forward. Your left hand fingering is wonderful! Nelson. Ps. Courage and keep practicing. :)

Hi Nelson, thank you for your tips, I'll keep them in mind next time I practice. Yes, I do have a metronome as an app on my phone and I know I have to use it more often. I'll try to do this too. :)
Nice to see you here, and thanks for your encouragements too.
:merci:

Pretty nice work Vaugh, be mindful of the 4 repeated A notes in measure 5 of Au Clair De La Luna, just a minor note reading observation.

The Open String exercise can be a helpful 2 finger alternation rest-stroke builder for i & m or m & a fingers.
I see that you elected to transpose most of the exercise for the m&a fingers, which is fine as long as the development of the i&m fingers is not sacrificed.

Hi Aowinter,
First, thank for the video submission, you were able to make a recording and post it successfully.

Second, the piece you recorded is "A La Claire Fontaine" versus "Au Clair De Lune"

Third, the very beginning of the recording has some extra notes that cause the timing and pulse to seem out-of-sync, but then you begin to play the piece and notes as notated in the score and things get smoother.

Good alternation between the i & m fingers and avoiding striking two notes back to back with the same finger in these exercises.

Aowinter, please read the conditions for participating the lessons. You will need to publicize the lessons in some way, and post into registration topic saying how you have accomplished that, and ask to be registered as a student. Only registered students are allowed to post their recordings here at the Lessons.

hello people! I have been practicing the pieces in lesson 1, but it's been challenging! I've recorded three pieces, and the rest will be done by this week. I'll keep on giving feedback though. Question: I keep on finding things to work on in each piece. Is there an area where I can get an explained lesson on technique for each piece? (Besides trying to find a private teacher) The video demonstrations are very cool, and having an explanation on techniques for each of the pieces would even be more awesome. Any suggestions would help. Trying my best, Nelson
