Thank you for watching my D01,D02 exam pieces and awarding a diploma.I feel happy and felt sense of achievement after year long study practice,learning etc.
Is it possible to add your comments about exam piece? What were my mistakes and what are the areas, I have to improve myself better?
Hi Zafar, your basic technique fundamentals are improving, it can take a little patience and persistence to get the fingers and hands trained to move in the various coordinated movements smoothly.
Isabella can be more active on the french forum, but she does occasionally post on the english and spanish forums, she will likely not have seen your question for her. A PM may be helpful.
The Volte piece is a rest-stroke and damping oriented polyphonic piece.
There are some really good exercises/pieces from the first few lessons of D01 and D02 that are great for developing rest-stroke, free-stroke, damping and polyphony skills.
One could take a few of those pieces, but spend extra time with them until developing a snappy/powerful rest stroke, confident free-stroke, and smooth transitions when moving measure to measure.
Re: Rest Stroke
Watch closely to how Prof. Delcamp's rest-stroke snaps through the string it strikes, then comes to rest on the adjacent string in many of those videos. In many cases you will notice the adjacent/rest string move quite a bit as he snaps through with force on the plucked string and and then comes to rest on the adjacent string.
No need to worry about the faster tempo, the mechanics and precision is more important to develop/train the fingers.
