Hello fellow students and mods, I have a question: do you know if next year there will be a D06 class on the English forum?

Cheers,

Michele

We're not currently aware of an English forum session for D06 in 2016-2017, but there will be a D06 in the Spanish forum.

Hi Tea,

The course typically starts in mid-September, and I have no reason to believe this year would be any different. I hope to see you then!

Hi, Classmates,
Here is a 3 part series link explaining Harmonics on guitar with examples.
We will use music sheets in which harmonics symbols are placed as "empty circles" above notes or "text Hrm" placed under the notes or "notes themselves have a diamond head with stem" at level D03 and higher levels.I will post some images showing, how to identify harmonics symbols placed in a particular music sheet.
Visit here,
----://---.fundamental-changes.com/harmonics-on-guitar

This author practically explain on guitar the production and playing of harmonics in multipart series.

Visit this link for part 1,

I have been looking through the D01 online lessons with a view to registering for the next session in September. I like the emphasis placed on 'damping' notes from the very first lesson and I think the exercises using rest stroke simultaneoulsy with p and i, m, a are good for developing good right hand position.
However I am confused about some of the RH fingerings - specifically the discrepancy between the fingering marked on the score and that used in the demonstration video.
e.g. studies p11-15 - LA TETE BIZARDE and FRERE JACQUES both have p fingering on the score but p is never used in the video?
I thought at first this might be an isolate 'typo' but as I progressed throught the lessons I found more examples
e.g. Lesson 3, tunes p16-20 - SCARBOROUGH FAIR, A VOUS DIRAI-JE MAMAN, LO NOUS MARCHONS SUR AN ETROIT CHEMIN all have p indications in the score but p is nowhere used in the corresponding videos???

This is all the more confusing because of the emphasis on 'damping' since the appropriate damping technique depends on the choice of RH fingering.

Am I missing something? I'm surprised I couldn't find any comments on this anywhere?

There has been some discussion about the discrepancies in the past. To look at the past years' lesson topics, see the Lesson Archive.

It looks to me that the right hand fingerings have either been added into the score, or modified, after the videos were recorded, as there are left hand damping marks in several places, where the use of 'p' rest stroke makes them unnecessary. I don't think it matters too much whether you choose to follow the right hand fingering of the demonstration videos, or the one in sheet music. There will be plenty of practice later on using 'p' rest strokes, i-m alternation (both free and rest strokes), and damping using both left and right hand fingers.

Is there any point in me registering for the Student Group now or will I just have to register for it again when classes start?

Hi Morgan, there is no point in registering now. The new session should start some time in the first half of September. Watch the Registration topic here for an announcement nearer the time. Of course you can look through the old lessons here in the meantime to get some idea of what to expect. You may also find it useful to look through the FAQs here. And don't forget to apply for group 002 to get access to the scores.

Thanks Geoff. I hadn't noticed the FAQ thread. There's so much great info on here, but I haven't used a forum in years and it'll take me a little time to get used to the format again. Well worth it though.
