Sorry for offtopic, but I'm so excited, I just watched David Russell live! This is the first time ever I went to a concert of a professional classical guitarist. This man is the master, such beautiful tone!
By the way, he played a lot of baroque music with trills, but these were a bit different from ours: these were two string trills which sound so good and I guess are much more difficult to produce.

By the way, are you playing the guitar you built yourself?
Thanks, yes I will keep practicing the trills as they are quite tricky to get up to speed.

No, not a guitar I built, an old Japanese plywood one!
Not building a guitar at the moment, this is my latest project a Violone, my daughter testing it before I finish the varnish and tie on the frets.

Oh, that's a masterpiece! I cannot even imagine how much skill, effort, time, energy and whatever else it takes to build such an instrument! :bravo:

Thank you, Binh. Yes! I never used/practices either of the techniques before.

Andrei,

Your trill exercise sounds darn good to me, all notes loud and clear.

Thank you, Chu! But the piece still does not come out well. I'm trying to play the trills fast enough so that they sound like trills :) But it is really hard...

Lesson 6 submission part 2/2:

I think trills sound better if played with acceleration (each subsequent note has a shorter duration), especially double trills.

David - very good. I understand about life's priorities. I like how you can focus on the movement of the left hand. I am still working on building my confidence and trust on the right hand hitting the correct strings.

Thanks Ed. Yes my left hand certainly does need some work - jerky movements and raising my fingers too far above the fret board.

Regarding the right hand, I think the key is to keep the movement of the hand to a minimum so that the strings fall naturally into the right place.

Sorry for any confusion from my previous post, I included some of Andrei's post and it may have appeared that the post was made by him.

I noticed in Andrei's demo video that his fingers are striking the stings at around 45% and he produces a nice tone. I think I stike the strings at a similar angle.

Your playing has come on a lot since I was last on the forum - so keep up the good work me 'ol mucker, your perseverance is paying off ;-)

Dave - thanks for the encouragement. I will try hitting at an angle.

Ed - hate to mention it as I am still struggling with this one, but in bar 6 you are playing a C natural rather than a C sharp in the base - your first finger needs to be on the fourth fret rather than the third. I think Bert made the same mistake in his recording.
