The other thing is the base notes are only sounded for a quarter or eighth note, depending on the measure. They are not supposed to ring. I know it makes the piece all the more difficult, but that's how it is supposed to be played. It is hard to hear it when Jean-Francois Delcamp plays it because he's so smooth. That aspect of this piece was most challenging in my opinion.

Tom - you are right - the muting in Paganini takes it to a whole new level of challenge.

First attempt at the improv to Folias using arpeggios. Wanted to get this out there so that I can see how much I can improve it over next couple of weeks. I need to work on less pressure to fingers when I get to the C and F chords.

Ed, nice job with improvisation. I am glad you posted this. I always draw a blank when it comes to improvising. If somebody were to hand me a guitar and ask me to jam with them, I'd just stand there with a blank stare.

I'll upload an attempt in a day or two. The instructor's posts are helpful to some degree, but he's so smooth, and sometimes fast, and its hard for me to understand what is going on. Your video helps me. I am going to need to spend more time with improvisation and stop avoiding it, as this is my problem area.

Lesson 7 is the first opportunity to post sufficient pieces to qualify for entering the exam.
At the end of the first post of each lesson you will see aa list of students and their posts which are registered as qualifying pieces.
Can you check your posts for each lesson and see if there are any I have missed.
thanks
Colin
Hi Colin,

I posted a 5th and 6th measure to the game.
For some reason the first note of this piece was cut off of the recording....

…… and suddenly a melody appeared.

It's the "Musical Games" forum directly under "Online Classical Guitar Lessons. Go check out the one Ed, Ken, and I just finished. You can see how it works.

Tom - thanks. It is weird how some things are more difficult than others. I agree with this improv piece. I do arpeggios every day with practice, yet when I got to this I freeze. I changed my arpeggio pracice from Guiliani's C to G& instead I use Dmin- - C - F. It helps a little.

hi Olga
If you look at the end of the first post of each lesson (the one where Prof Delcamp explains and demonstrates the lesson) you will see a set of links for each student. You just need to check that all the qualifying pieces are listed under you name and post any that are missing or let me know if you have posted one and I have missed it.
Hope that helps
Colin

Olga - nicely done. I think your next goal - the same as mine - is to get familiar with the Folias so that there is little or no pause between each of the chord changes. For me that means lessening the pressure of the left hand/fingers.

Tom - well done. Amazing how, what should be a simple task, can be so challenging

Thanks Ed. I agree. Even something that looks easy is going to require practice to be any good at it. I just need to make myself to that :|...... starting tomorrow 8) maybe.. :wink:
