Thanks Ben! It's great to see you in D02. I hope everything calms down on the home front so you don't feel rushed to get your recordings in. Bill :merci:

Sounds good Bill. Try to include both of your hands into the frame next time, it's gonna help us address any potential posture issues. :bye:

Thanks Stefan. I have been thinking about how to handle that because I use an iPad for the recording and positioning it is a little difficult because it is from the bottom up view. I will try to put it higher to get a level view that includes my posture. :merci: Bill

Bill,
Great job on the rest stroke exercise and the songs. Your tempo was good and I heard no buzzes. :bravo:

David,
Your tempo was very good. I was check out your right hand and you have great control. Everything sounds great as well. By the way, Google was fine for me, no inconvenience whatsoever. :bravo:

Sounds good, except for that microphone issue. I have an apple and recording was very easy on it until apple disabled the microphone in imovie on the mavericks update. My postings are going to be a bit late, having trouble with my van so I haven't had enough time to practice. Additionally, I'm having unexpected visitors for a week or so. Hopefully I'm going to be able to post mine in a few days.
Ben,

Glad to see you in D002, I look forward to seeing your videos. I hope your van is working properly now, I know it's a drag when stuff like that happens. It seems like when something with a vehicle or a house goes wrong everything else gets messed up. I hope to fix the mic issue this weekend, of course I'm not a IT or recording expert so we'll see, LOL

Marko Räsänen wrote:Hi Scott,

It sounds to me that in your videos there are two audio tracks playing which are slightly misaligned. One is probably from the camera mic and the other from the external mic. When you add the audio from the external mic, you should disable the audio already contained in the video. As it is now it sounds like there's a strange reverb or echo.
Marco,

I was playing with my mic and audio interface and you're right. I had both the camera mic and the interface mic going at the same time. Thanks for the suggestion. I also turned off the effects on the interface (it was at hall setting). So hopefully the next submission will have a better recording, at least I hope :lol:

I got reminded in the forum of another year that this first lesson only spans 3 weeks and that tomorrow (or, I guess, for most of your today...) new lessons will be published. So I rushed to have my contribution on D02 in. Will try to record Casper either tonight (albeit he has Tackle Football practice...) or over the Weekend.

Enjoy, and feel free to comment !
It's a heck of a lot easier than 2 years ago but still far from satisfactory ;-)

Hi Archit, I like your good control of your left hand. Your fingers are relaxed, accurate on frets, and have good independence of each finger :bravo:
