:bravo:
The Prelude opus 114 n°7 , you play very good, I think you play more fluent than me, especially from bar 18 to the end, you transit very good, not any gap.

Petite etude
on bar 9, the E duration is too long, you play it not eighth, but dotted eighth, and at the end of the song, you miss the bar 26, I watch your video, you play bar 25 then to bar 27.
And the harmonic you played very good, very clean and clear, I play it alomst not can be heard.Do you have good methods? :D
The whole song you play it very musically, I like it!
congratulation!:)
Hi Angela, thank you for the commets, they are very valuable! You are right, i forgot bar 26 on Petit etude. How did that happen??? I need to listen to Mr. Delcamps performances more often while learning a song and keep better focus on the notation.

With the harmonics its a bit of a gamble at the moment. Sometimes they work and sometimes they dont, but is ts getting better. At the beginning the biggest issue was to get the volume loud enough. I try to use more fingernails than on my normal palying and pick the strings harder. I guess keep on practicing is key. The harmonics on your first Petit etude were really good and i noticed that you struggled a bit on the second recording.

Ok, here it is. I am far from being happy with it, but i have to get it out and concentrate on the next lesson. Especially the Arpegios are very badly played. I just couldent get consistent with them.

For Harmonics, I've discovered (on my guitar at least) that when I pluck the string closer to the bridge I often get a clearer, louder harmonic.
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

Thanks for the tip Rick. I tried it out and it works for me! Much appreciated.
