Good job Jonathan, love your play :) . I don' know if it's silly to share this, but one thing that helps me to play more musical, "more emotional" is hum to the song and play at the same time. It improves the flow, you know, it doesn't feel like bunch of notes grouping together.

When you put the YouTube reference in you need to use just the number not the whole url. I've fixed it for you.

Hi Sal, that's good play! I like the slow deliberate measures and dynamics of your Polyphonie - by contrast I notice you've a very slight tendency to rush in Oh! Susanna, the a-m-i passages. So do I, I think... not so much 'pots and kettles' but just an observation that's quite interesting?

Ohyo Jonathan, thank you. Please never feel the need to qualify or oppologize for a comment regarding my play. I agree with you 100% in regards to Oh Susanna. I think my problem stemed from uneven practice of the piece. Too much time on the harder parts without balancing practice with the rest.

Welcome back Tom.
Very well played. No comments other than keep practicing the polyphonie to get the sync of thumb and finger every time. Your sync is very good with only occasional mismatch, but this technique is so important it features as part of most levels.
