Roger, you might want to count out loud: 1 and 2 and ; 1 and 2 and; ... and so on, or you can tap your foot to keep the beat steady. Sorry but your 3rd attempt is not good. Slow but steady beat is better than fast. Keep it up Roger, give you a hug :discussion: (no homo tho hehe.)

Nicely play. :casque: . Your left hand is tense though. You might want to slow down and eliminate it. Other than that, I enjoy your song.

Hi Andreas,
8th notes and .25 Notes I have problems with. When I listen to someone else playing I can
remember the rhythm. When I play on my own without listening to someone else or a recording I get it wrong.
I have been struggling with the Metronome it seems so unorthodox, but I guess I must struggle with it to play correctly.

Thanks again,

Roger Dorfield

Hi Andreas
I listened to your J'ai du bon tabac sounds great. I use my pinky on the B String D fret so I don't have to stress so far.
But all in all sounds great.
Roger :bravo:

Good Job!

Do not try several times quently, rest and start again, stress is not good.
I do not feel at ease before the camera, my performance drops. :(
Thank you Tales! Yes, sometimes I leave a cup of tea on my table to remind me that I have to make a break but I forget, my tea gets cold I and get even more angry :)

Thank you Binh! I am trying my best to make my left hand relax but it seems I am still very bad at it.

I liked your "J'ai du bon tabac" a lot. It seems to be a very nice interpretation. And I like your right hand very much!
