I tried to avoid squeaking noise as much as possible. It was more difficult than expected. Also, this rushing up in front of a camera... It should be played a bit slower.
I also noticed that the better my tone gets the clearer I can hear the natural guitar tone color. It sounds very... cedar.

Lovely - You have a great tone. It was said of Segovia that He wouldn't play anything other than a Cedar guitar - it has a beautiful warm mellow sound.

I'm not sure if it should be played any slower. The tempo sounds about right to me - perhaps slow certain sections down a little and play a somewhat more rubato.

But overall, excellent - this was not an easy one to crack!

Well done for completing these pieces. Its always a difficult decision as to how much time and effort to put in when you are dropping behind - I know this only too well. Sometimes its just better to get them out of the way and move on. I am facing exactly the same dilemma with the pieces I am behind with.

Having said that you have these pieces mostly right with just a few hesitations and wrong notes. You have a good playing position and are producing a nice tone from your guitar.

Time now to put these pieces behind you and move on to lesson 7s pieces.

Good luck and keep up the good work. :D

Glad to hear I am not the only one with this recording/videoing 'malady.' I have just begun to try recording some pieces (in preparation for starting in D01 in the Fall). So I play a piece reasonably well, and then decide to record/video myself - and boom, the mistakes pile on.

Yes, I think I better stay with my day job!

sounds good just need to work on them more. You know memorize the music so it becomes more fluid.

We all experience this problem at first. My advice is to spend more time playing full pieces in front of the camera, until you can learn to forget about it.

Accept that you will make mistakes while recording at first.. with time it becomes easier. This is one of many roadblocks you can anticipate hitting. :lol:

I'm on lesson 5 and it often still takes me several takes to "forget the camera".

Don't let it discourage you, just keep trying! Also, realize we understand this phenomena.. so we understand if all recordings are not always perfect ;-)
I know next to nothing about everything.
