Thank you for posting this and having the courage to be the first video post of the D03 course.

You play very well, it is a good quality recording. I think your bass note is coming in just fractionally before the trebble though - I had exactly the same problem. It takes a lot of concentration to get them both to come in at the same time. Seems to improve with practice though.

Well done and keep up the good work. :)

Another well recorded and clear video - I can see a definite improvement from the polyphony #1 video.

Your trebbles and base notes are now exactly together.

Well done and keep up the practice. :D

Carulli Arpeggi part one.
Arpeggi di tre note

Here is the first part of the Carulli arpeggi. I am still playing this below full tempo as I am trying to get the base mute right.

I decided to use a left handed base muting technique as it allows the music to flow more freely.

You will notice at around 19 seconds into the video the third finger of my left hand lightly touches the A string in order to mute it.

Zafar Haq - well done on Polyphony #2. Just a question to all classmates - on Polyphony #2. Although it does not show damping on measure #3, #5 etc it does show a rest note for the bass, should we be damping the previous bass note at the rest note?

Thanks,

I just had not hit the publish button. Seems I'm not so good with the technology.

Please let me know if it is working now.

Sounds good.
Minor point, you might want to keep thumb more in centre of back of neck as it will give a more comfortable position for other pieces where fingers need to move across the strings

HI Ed,

Hope you don't mind me commenting on this one at this late stage.

You played very well - I did not find this one easy as you have to think about 3 things at once:
keeping time, playing the right notes and getting the base and trebble rest notes exactly together. You have pretty much done all 3, so good job.

Your base notes do sound a little muted though. This could be because you are playing with the flesh of the thumb and not the nail, or may be because your thumb nail is too short.

You obviously practice on a regular basis, so well done and please keep it going. :bravo:

Still working on this one - not quite there.

Welcome to the group.
Sounds good, I like the Marazula which will smooth up with practice.
You will be given credit for the Arpeggi when you have posted the 4 note section.
