Sounds good. The SCHIARAZULA has just a few hesitations and will soon be smooth im sure.

Hello Colin.
Thanks for listening and commenting my work. The Schiarazula was hard for me to learn. I know I need more time.

Warts and all. Need to park this and come back to it later, stumbles are where I forget either fingering or damping

I really like your relaxed playing. Even with the stumbles you continued on properly.
I think a small decrease in tempo will help significantly with your comfort.
My opinion of the piece is that the melody notes sound very good when play legato.
Perhaps circle the measures which give you the most difficulty and practice "playing ahead" very slowly. Placing your fingers in the intended position slightly before the notes is struck.

Excellent playing!
I noticed the shape of your hand changed when you switched from the apoyando exercise to the other two practice pieces.
In the apoyando exercise your technique was very very good ( I wish I could get my fingertips to bend like that!).

In the longer pieces it appeared as though tension came down through your shoulder into your hand and flattened it.

I have had a great deal of luck breaking longer pieces up into small measures and playing from the last measure to the first measures. Watch you hands in the mirror and as soon as you detect tension stop, relax your hands/arms/neck, then continue.

Very nice Edna sounds good. One thing do you feel comfortable when you're playing. Your left hand seems a bit stiff and looks uncomfortable it could be the camera angle. Good stuff keep on playing.

Tension is my primary nemesis, My pinky finger gets tensed. You observed correctly.

Hello classmates:
Here are my submissions for this lesson... I've been trying to catch up, but have had a reduced time for practicing, so pieces are not as clean as I would like them to be.

Hello classmates, I had some problems and I'm starting the course now. Unfortunately I lost a lot of time and even though the pieces were not as clean as I would like, I'm doing my best to finish the course. Thank you all :bye:
