I may come back to this one at some point because I wasn't crazy about my playing but I would like to move on from it.
I know this feeling all too well. I chose last night to go back and listen to my earlier videos of the first few Lessons. UGH.
I'm not sure how much is "genuine" fret/string/nail noise, and how much of it is because I don't do any editing or "smoothing" of the sound file to reduce the inevitable peaks and increase the commensurate valleys which occur in the pattern. But really, after spending a few days on any given Lesson, I am generally not so interested in continuing to polish and polish and polish it to flawlessness. I too like to "move on from it".
Sadly, this is probably quite at odds with the overall purpose of this project....
My first renditions were also very, very poor, David, and they are not that much better now...
. But I persevere, play them every day, and they are getting better all the time.
As for an "overall purpose of this project", well, each one of us will have different expectations when joining this Project and I can only speak for myself, but my idea when starting this thread, with the full support of our good friend Yisrael van Handel, was simply to set ourselves (and myself in particular) a goal that would force us to improve our playing and score reading skills in a systematic way, counting for that on the generosity of teachers and other more advanced players in the Forum to help us all in this objective. In that sense, I feel that the Project was a good idea, a measure of its success being the number of posts, records and views it has attracted so far.
Now, once a particular piece has been studied to the point of one being able to post a reasonable record of it, so that others can listen and provide constructive comments and advice, it is then up to each one of us to further improve it, or not. But main goal, to learn how to play the piece with a minimum skill will have been achieved
