Excellent, you could afford to take it more slowly at this stage and I suspect the odd fumbles would go away.

Thank you, Colin.

I suspect my fumbles come from impatience and not practicing properly from the beginning. I wont make that mistake in the future.

Hello, all. I've been putting off posting this because I was hoping the issue would resolve itself with some rest, but no such luck... anyway, I've developed a bit of a repetitive stress injury in my fretting hand. It's likely related to guitar and a few other things I do (typing, cycling). The upshot is that I'm going to continue to rest it and won't be participating in the lessons this year, which sucks because I was looking forward to participating.

Hopefully next year!

Jonathan, your "Extensions" sound very nice. I like how you are able to play the dynamics as written. I am having trouble making the first note of each measure louder than the others. :bravo:

And Jonathon and Salvatore, Maleguena sounds like it is coming along. I agree with Colin. I think slowing down is good. I have the hardest time with this, but my musician friends tell me to play only as fast as you can play without mistakes--especially while learning a song. Unfortunately for me, though, that sometimes means not playing at all :lol:

Here are my two exercises. I thought I would never be able to do the extension exercise. I even thought of using a capo in the beginning. But sure enough, they got easier as I practiced--still need more practice though.

David,
I don't think just rest will help, at least not in the long term. Since you live in the Bay Area I would suggest seeking a professional who specializes in your exact problem. Reach out on the Public Space section for a recommendation in your area. I suspect you're bending your wrist too much and/or your posture and positioning of the guitar needs work. Good luck.

Thanks, Salvatore. I'm definitely doing more than just resting it. I'm actually not even entirely sure the guitar playing is the problem.

Sound good Rajesh, I did notice your strum hand is a bit bouncy when you pluck with your thumb. I myself have been trying to bend more at the finger joints instead of following through with my whole hand when I pluck the lower strings with my thumb and I can now feel an improvement in fluidity and control. Keep up the good work.
