Hello everyone,

As from today you'll notice a change to the lesson moderator team.

Carl, who stepped in at short notice earlier this session to help us fill a sudden vacancy, is moving on now that the session is more or less finished. I'm most grateful to him for the invaluable work he has done in his time as lesson mod.

And Colin Bullock has generously agreed to take over the post. I welcome him to the mod role, and thank him for offering up his time and effort to help us ensure that the lessons can continue to run smoothly.

Hi Zafar, a couple of notes regarding your technique.

Left hand: When playing a scalar passage, you should tie the notes together better. When ascending a scale, you shouldn't lift the previous finger off the string until you have fretted the next one. When descending a scale you should prepare the next (lower note fretting) finger on the string before lifting the finger used for previous note. This will allow the notes to sound continuously.

Right hand i-m alternation: You should bring the finger you're going to play next in front of the string (from the finger's perspective) as soon as possible, and not wait until you actually need to play that finger. One way to do it is to move i and m simultaneously: when i plays the note, m gets back in front of the string at the same time, and when m plays the note, i gets back in front of the string in preparation for the next note. This way the finger can concentrate on the actual playing of the string, and not switch the direction of the movement just before it plays the string. The benefits are increased speed and better tone. It seems to me that already do this with i finger, but keep the m finger inside your palm after each stroke. Try to visualize i-m alternation as walking: when the left foot goes forward, the right foot goes backwards etc.

Hi, Marko,
Thanks for your invaluable input to my technique.
For left hand, I will try to keep my finger remain on the fret while playing the next note to tie the overall sound continuous.
For right hand,due to injury and its consequence, healing the tendon is not responsive and natural.I'm doing my best to push middle finger using massage and physical finger exercises.Due to this handicap,even the pressure and resulting sound appear different in volume.It is noted by students at D01,D02 home assignments.

Hi, Classmates,
Marko identified my left hand right hand technique issues.
I watched this video, which explains, what Marko wanted me to look for and practice right hand correct finger movements.
I'm posting here the link for anyone wanted to know more of the right hand technique.

Hi, Marko, Classmates,
Here is my right hand index middle finger walking practice effort. :)
Please identify if it is correct or need some alternation.
First time, I moved my camera in a closeup view to show myself using the right hand finger walking.
