Hi Mike, welcome to class D03, I enjoyed listening to you play.

You have a good position for the guitar, holding it in an almost cello like position.


Did you notice the string dampings on the sheet music for the last 3 pieces? They are indicated by the flowery stars under the music.

The Marazula has an alternating base line, after the C has been played in the base the thumb immediately jumps back to damp the A string. You can see this quite clearly in the demo version of this tune.

Well done and keep practicing. :)

Yes, I forgot to record the 2nd Arpeggi.

Just learning the pieces, now starting to apply damping.

Splendid Mike, I look forward to hearing them.

I've just got the Mazula to do, and then the revised versions of everything when I can play them all a bit better.

Good Luck. :)

Mike Modjeski - great job with all of the exercises. Agree with Dave on the damping - I find it tough to remember - I am trying to make it a habit so I don't have to think about it.

:bravo: Hi Bert, I also enjoyed listening to your playing.

I would like to make a few comments on each piece if a may:

Arpeggi di 4 note

Timing is good, you play evenly throughout.

Buzzing in base - When you play the lower base there appears to be some buzzing, this can often be caused by stiking the string up and away from the guitar rather than in the plane of the sound board


String dampings - Measure 13 and 15 have string dampings as shown by the pin wheels. I think you have missed these


Measure 16 rest - There is a sqiggly line at the end of bar 16 which indicates a rest for the last beat.
In other words the last beat of the final bar(measure) should be totally silent.

Arpeggi de 3 note

Timing is nice and even again, buzzing still in the base notes.

String damping in bar 6

The rest at the end of bar 8

Polyphonie

No buzzings in the base here - the rest strokes are making you play the string paralell to the sound board.
Your bases and trebbles are coming together very well, your timing is good and you are playing all the right notes.

Shiarazula

Are you missing the string dampings in this one? It is a little difficult to tell from your recordings. Also, your
timing is not even throughout, you seem to be slowing down for the difficult bits like in bar 11, the boxed section
which we are supposed to practice 5-10 time each day before attempting the whole piece.

You need to either slow the whole piece down to keep an even tempo, or work on the difficult bits.


Other than that, well played and keep up the good work.

Here is my attempt at the Mazula, I really struggled with this one.

when I tried to get the dampings right I kept missing notes or getting out of time, or if I concentrated on playing the right notes I would miss all the dampings.

You are not alone Dave, I'm having the same problems. As Chu said the fingerings on this are not straaight forward.
Hope to get my videos done this weekend
