Because I know that some of the students have very good recordings on their Youtube channels that are not presented here because they are not part of the set of lessons and since I believe that some of us have issues that may not be directly related to the lessons that currently handle I hope that one place like this help to overcome such "trouble".Goran Penic wrote:Dear friends,
Is there a possibility to open a topic on "On-line classical guitar lessons" ("Student corner" or something like that) in which students could put their work outside of lessons. In which students could comment on various things that are in some way outside of student groups to which they belong or related general things. This especially makes sense in a time of "summer holidays". Since much of the conversation moves from the past to the archives I think a place like this left a lot of important things that would be useful for future students, and would give the possibility to everyone to show what's still working out the lessons.
One of the reasons for creating such a topic is that I would not want to insult someone's good taste (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=83368#p900103), but still I would like to to show some things I've done.
This idea came to me during last summer when I recorded some pieces and I did not know where to put them since they do not belong to the lessons, and I was convinced they were good enough to put them in "Our recordings of ....". So the above discussion is not the reason of this message, but it only prompted me to expose an idea that was independently created earlier.
Because'm not a expert in the English language, I hope I managed to convey the proper spirit of this initiative, in which there are no complaints, but only good intentions.
I've seen fingernail lengths range the gamut from barely grown out to eagle talons, and heard good results both ways. I, personally, like to keep them about 1-2mm past the tips of my fingers, with a slight ramping toward the "pinky" side of the hand. I feel like the sound gets too thin if the nails are longer.Bill Jones wrote:I am not an Online Student. I am taking private lessons locally. Would it still be appropriate for me to post here as well? Also, since it is the "Students' Corner", are "beginner" or "newbie" questions tolerated here? Or is it just for lesson oriented discussion/recording posts? I have searched on a number of topics and found a lot of good information, but it's not the same as having a current conversation about the topic.
For instance, in playing fingerstyle on my steel-string acoustics, I have always preferred to grow out my fingernails. On my classical guitar, I am finding that I like the sound better with my fingernails trimmed short. What are other beginning students experiencing with this? Or would this question be better suited for a "Beginners' Corner"?
I completely agree.LindaWoodford wrote:--
I think this space will be a great place for people who actively participate in the lessons - and, of course, the lessons are open to everyone to participate in.
Linda. I play Gitar2 (Guitar 2 start with arpeggios have some solo in the middle and then end with arpeggio).LindaWoodford wrote:What a delightful piece! I really enjoyed listening and looking at the dancing figures. Thank you for sharing this.
Which part did you play? ...
Yes, but it is hard to find. Another reason to be grateful that there exists Delcamp Forum and YoutubeLindaWoodford wrote:...
must be nice to have a colleague close by who plays too.
