Andrew, I think we are only supposed to post the specific lesson pieces here and to post any other pieces in the Student Corner.

Colin, according to FAQ entry as long as the pieces are part of the lesson even when not required (as is the case with Preludio Pentatonica), they can be posted in the corresponding lesson topic.

Hi Andrew. All your recordings sound very good and are of a very high quality. You bring a very high standard to the D04 lessons and rised the bar high up. I especially liked the Tarrega's Preludio Pentatonica and Estudio Ostinato, they are both vell played. Also that one big stretch doesent seem to give you too much trouble.

The only thing i could pick up was on the Bretonneuse. You could try to be a bit tighter with the dampening of the bass notes. Also in the intro the time signature is a bit off.

Keep up the good work!

Dennis Stewart wrote:Hi, here are my videos for this lesson. On the Estudio ostinato i found it impossible for me to play the G# in bar 5 and let it ring. Everytime i tried, i experienced pain in my wrist. I am not sure if i am doing something wrong. I hope i will be able to improve on the stretches...
Hi Dennis. Very well done. On estudio I think you didn't completed the repeat, which is found just before the final bar and note. I agree with you. I struggled with Estudio to hold the base notes longer and give it the unique sound required. Also, that g# is next to impossible for me. I feel my fingers are too short, lol. Best luck this semester. I look forward to seeing our progress like last semester. Thanks, Bill

Andrew,

Very well done. Estudio was very difficult for me to get some musicality out of. Yours was well done. I think I noticed in the beginning of Bretonneuse you did not mute in bars 3, 5 and 7. I struggled with muting the other bars 11, 14, 15 and 16. I felt I was 50:50 on getting the mute done without buzzing other strings or muting another one by accident. Thanks, Bill

Hi Bill, really nice to see you again and thanks for the tips! Your recordings sound good. I had the same problem with the G# in the Estudio Ostinato. Its really hard to keep that stretch for the whole bar. Apart from that, i think yours sound good. Also the Bretonneuse is very well played. You already mentioned that you struggle with the dampening of the bass notes, that was the only thing i could pick up. :bravo:

Hey guys :)

I recently moved to another city, so I missed the first 3 lessons of d04. Now I am starting again playing :)
I will do my best to catch up :)
